    Can I just share with you all how very very very much I love my new job! :) I've been a lurker here for awhile, and just started participating in the last few weeks, but wanted to share this with all of you! :)

    So, I was at Kindercare (shudder) for the past 2 years, first as a preschool teacher and most recently on the management team as Program Specialist. (Which turned out to be a fancy name for break/lunch person!) I'd been unhappy for quite awhile, but there really wasn't much else out there in my town, plus I was in the process of getting married (in Sept.) so it wasn't the most ideal time to change jobs. I felt like I was just being used and dragged into the ground there - I went to school to be a teacher (Bachelors in Music Education) and even when I was in the classroom at Kindercare, I wasn't encouraged to teach to the best of my abilities - and that made me sad!

    Well in November, I saw an intriguing posting on our local craigslist under education - for a preschool teacher at a small Christian school - and it just jumped out at me. So, I applied - and to make a long story short, I got the job, and everything fell into place so perfectly (down the fact that the new school is less than a mile from our house, perfect for a one car household!) - that I know without a doubt that this is where God wants me to be. I started the first week in December. (of course I only worked a couple of weeks before it was Christmas break! lol)

    I LOVE the new school, they value the teachers and treat us well. I have an awesome little class, with great parents who want to be involved. It is such a change, and I couldn't be happier. I actually look forward to going to work every day and can't wait to be back at it next week and to see my kiddos again!

    Anyway, I realize this is super long - but I just wanted to share my good experience so far - and I'm looking forward to 2009 at my new school! :)

    Congrats on the new job. I too work as a preschool teacher in a small christian childcare center. We are appreciated, respected and treated well. Though some of the bennies are not as good as they might be other places, the atmosphere helps make up for it a lot.

    I am so pleased for you Jennifer. What type of program does the school use? How much support have they given you?

    Good luck.
