I'm working 9-5


No, not really, but I am going to be working from 7:45-2:15pm. If you haven't gotten my drift I got a new jobby job! I couldn't be happier and I start Jan.6th! I will be working at my old high school as an academic advisor!!! It seems right up my alley! Man I like exclamation points in this post but you get the dirft of how excited I am!






I can upon this position from B's receptionsit and her hubby had told her about it and thought of me! Now he hubby was my history teacher in high school. So then I called the assistant principal one day had an interview set up for that next Monday and was offered the position on Tuesday! great early Christmas gift! There were 5 others that interviewed and I thought they were just giving me a interview because I am going to be a coach there. I will get to that in a minute! Anway, needless to say I was shocked and excited all at the same time! Instead of a 45 minute commute I will now have a 2 minute commute and have summers off.






For those of you who don't know I have all of my education in teaching secondary education except for student teaching! I had one semester left, this is after my first bachelor's degree and I said this isn't for me! I didn't want to do curriculum! So this position will be perfect for me! I will responsible to interacting with the 3 major universities in the state to set up college visits, and speakers coming to the school to speak to students. I am all responsible to communicating with students about where they are currently and where they want to go in their future! It's a long way from working with at-risk youth, but I couldn't be happier!


Ok, on the coaching. A few months ago, actually the day after I accepted my current position I was offered a soccer coaching position with the local high school. I new that it wouldn't work with my current position but I wanted to see where things were in a few months. So this situation has really worked out ideally and this spring yours truly will be the girl's soccer coach! For those of your sporty ladies out there, I have been a soccer player since I was 5 and have coached a variety of sports including swimming, dance team and now soccer!



Ok, one funny tidbit, as I've already stated I accepted this position at my high school. Well, when I was in high school I was a state champion track runner. When you accomplish this in my high school you get your picture taken and hung with the rest of the state champs.....Guess where my pictures rests??? No joke right above my office door....and I mean directly above the entrance.....funny huh!! now you can see my smug mug 8 years ago.....go through the door and presto chango, new hair and I'm now the authority....hehe! So there's where I am in a nutshell! Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
