What do I make? I make a difference....that's what I make. (Buckle up.)

I am sitting on my bed working on lesson plans.  I want to ensure that the first day of school for the children AND for the teacher is amazing.


I can't articulate how excited I am for this school year.  I have an amazing team, a beautiful school, an incredible principal and great expectation.   I won't sleep a wink - I'll worry about what I'm wearing on the first day, what activities we'll do, if anyone will cry, and just about everything else there is to worry about.


I'm getting back to work, but wanted to share Taylor Mali's inspirational speech.  THIS is why I do what I do. (Please take a minute to watch it all.....teacher says....)







Well, the fact that I make a difference is important, but that I can laugh every day is a bonus;  A HUGE bonus.  


(Wish me luck....)

I'm on pins and needles - I'm waiting to hear that I got the job I desperately want - at a VERY good school. It's all up to HR now.

Pray for me.
