I want to scream but I would wake up my kids! After searching for almost 3 years to find a teaching job, I finally landed a fourth grade position at a charter school in a nearby city. It is a brand new (still under construction) school, and the admin seems approachable and competent. I will be able to take my two older kids with me - getting them out of the struggling school they are in - while my husband stays home with the two younger ones. Each year I have stocked up on the cheap school supplies with the hopes of being able to use them, but alas, they were all donated to the teacher on the first day of school. This year, when I stock up, I get to keep everything! It is all surreal to me. I am just on cloud nine right now. Everything has fallen into place, and the newest chapter of my life is beginning!
