when I'm flying in my dreams
The way I laugh there way up high
The way I look when I fly
The way I live
The way I fly
Monday was a This-is-the-first-day-of-the-rest-of-your-life kinda day.
I started a new job.
Let me introduce myself : I'm your new First Grade Associate Teacher.
Now, I know a lot of jobs can be loved in the first "fun" week and then quickly turn into a "job" where there is no f-u-n. To that I would say: let me have my moment. I just got back from an overnight retreat with all the faculty and I feel like a giddy, little kid (but on the big, grown-up side now).
I feel like I've finally landed. I had just about started to ask myself, "why didn't you do this before?", and then quickly felt the answer come right back: This is just the right moment, the exact right moment, for this to be.
A school that encourages students to live in greatness, to be themselves, and to treat every human with respect; All things that I strive for and am happy to be passing the word about. I do wish I could be a bit more articulate about what a great feeling it is combine a love of so many things in one job. The feeling is palpable.
