A Response to All Teacher Friends...

I just want to thank all of you for generously reminding me of why I chose NOT to be a teacher. It is a profession for those who are patient, perseverant, & passionate. It is unfortunate, however, that each of you are so stressed and overwhelmed right now. I think we all just need to take a hot bath with lavender, soft music, a hubby foot massage, and a splash of champagne. Seriously ladies, lets take a breather & remind ourselves of how special each one of you is, how much of a difference you are going to make in each of your student's lives this year, and how blessed you are to have been chosen to take on such a rewarding position.

Although you're all stressed, it WILL get better. God IS with you, & through Him, all things are possible. Even turning ESL students into English book readers, getting the 'slower' children to stay up with the others, & guiding each one of them through a time in their life they will never forget.

With that, I give all of you women the best wishes for a HAPPY, progressive, & successful school year! Now, go teach 'em! :)

What a treasure it was to open up your blog and read your kind words! Thank you so much... it's just what I needed! I am definitely overwhelmed and nervous, but I know that God is going to use me in this ministry and touch my students' lives. I feel privileged that I was chosen to do just that.
