YEA! I made it! First year is over! Believe it or not I am excited about next year!
To celebrate Evan took me wherever I wanted to eat...:)
We went to the Ft Worth's Bass Hall Friday night to see TURANDOT...one of puccini's operas. Excellent! I miss singing...not that I ever sang that good. HA
Plus he gave me something very special to wear to the opera! Jewelry! Can't ever go wrong with that, huh ladies? :)
I love you honey! Thanks for making me feel so special and beautiful! Thanks for helping me make it through my first year of teaching and two great years of marriage come June 17th!
To all of you, thanks for giving great adivce and listening to all my groanings:)
Another test out of the way! One step closer to being fully certified. Feeling great!
Only a few observation hours left to observe other teachers and attend one last teacher training. Wow...all the stress is now...over...finally.
In my life I've always felt like tests were always stopping me, ruling my life, or keeping me from where I wanted to go. At FC, I didn't pass the math part on the exit exam, until 6 months after I graduated. This kept me from getting a teaching job when we moved to TX. After taking it five times and getting tutoring, I passed. Then I had to take all my alternative certification tests. My content test took like 6 times and my esl certification took 2 times. Always receiving a score that was 2-5 points away from passing. Talk about frustrating and expensive.
I wrote this for anyone who needs my sympathy if you have something keeping you from what you want or where you want to go. Whether it be a test,money or whatever. If you work your hardest and trust in Him, God will take care of you. Just in His time.
Don't let the Devil trick you into thinking you are not smart enough or aren't good enough. Don't waste your time wallowing in your failures, they just kick you down even more. I believe that this is one of the MAIN reasons that I had to attempt my tests so many times, because I lacked faith and confidence in myself and most importantly, God.
Thank you to my husband who had faith in me and loved me no matter how many times I had to retake my exams.
Thank you to my family members that encouraged me and helped me believe in my abilities.
Thank you to my friends who gave me study materials and cheered me on.
What lessons I have learned. Did I gain alot of knowledge in studying for these tests? Am I a smarter individual now?
I think I know myself better and I've learned to give my worries to God.
I think that makes me smart.
Thanks for listening.
I guess I am finally a grown up now.
Not really excited about it since its during my last 6 weeks of school....well mainly because it's during the time that I am preparing my next and last program for the year.
Am I a bad citizen for not wanting to answer the jury summons?
...if you think yes....don't respond. ;)
I called the hotline to request a postponement after calling hours. My husband told me I might get held in contempt by calling after hours and not following the rules.....
jerk.....since he is a lawyer...I for a split second beleived him.
Can you tell I was in a small room all day testing a small group of behavior kids for TAKS? ;)
this was the longest post I've had in a while...hope it was worth your time....probably not. :)
UPDATE***** I got the bailiff to postpone my jury duty after school awesome!
went splendidly well. they were so cute and their parents were so proud.:) along with their teacher, mrs. clark:)
By the time they got off they were sweatin buckets with their heavy bug/aninmal costumes. poor things.
Only one more program...
We went to the singing at Castleberry with RJ and Tim Stevens. It was so good to be there!
It's amazing what a singing can do to lift your spirits....and Posados:)
love that salsa and chips....and of course the sopaipilla.."little pillows":) (that's what evan calls them)
what's your favorite mexican place?
