    I have finished Day 2 with students, and I am loving my new school. I sought advice on here while interviewing, asking what was the appeal of private, specifically Catholic, schools. I know it's a bit early, but I must say that you all were right! The sense of community between the staff, among the students, in the building as a whole is truly inspirational. I feel supported, without feeling stifled. I feel independent, without feeling alone. I feel energized, without feeling overworked. I have always wondered why people were willing to work for less money in the Catholic schools. I get it.

    Plus, there is an assistant in our office who makes our copies for us! Isn't that crazy?!?!?!?

    Thanks for all the advice; you all truly helped me to pick the right school!

    It is a freeing experience, isn't it? The pay may not be the same, but the sense of community and freedom within your curriculum is priceless.

    Enjoy your year!
