....Nervous & Excited!!!............

...Ready, Set, Run!!...
Well today I have mixed emotions as today I embark on a new adventure for me!! :) As of today my classes begin for me to become a teacher. I currently hold a BBA in Finance and have made the choice to pursue a teaching degree. The classes are through Region 4, who is partnering with the regions across the state, and are totally online. I will finish classes Dec. 21st, and then find an internship at a school for the 2009-2010 school year. During the internship I will have a classroom of my own and be considered a teacher just with a probationary certificate. After I have completed the internship and passed all the exams I will be FULLY certified!!

I have been finished with college for 3 yrs now and have added 2 kids to the family. Levi tells me to relax, that it'll be fine, but my kids are my first priority so PLEASE pray that I can handle all of the stress! I will continue to work at Owens full-time until the end of Summer 2009, after that my boss has agreed to let me work part-time to get the bookwork done. I ABSOLUTELY love my job, just hate the commute back and forth to Childress EVERYDAY!! My goal is to find a teaching job in Quanah, as Montana will be old enough to attend pre-school here in Quanah next year.

So many things are changing right now, especially with the girls, and I want to be with them as much as I can. I feel this is the route that I have to go, for myself and them!! My area of study will be EC-4 Generalist. (Heather- maybe you can help pass the word that I am doing this) and I will be to the school soon to talk to them!

Now, after my spill of what I had bottled up for the past 6 months, I leave you with adorable pics of the girls. I haven't posted any new pics in awhile so it may take me a couple of days to catch up!!

Happy Hump Day!! :)
