What an honor!

Friday, March 27, 2009

Wow! I was invited to be the speaker at my graduation commencement! They do commencements by individual colleges within my University, so I will be the undergrad speaker for the College of Education. They also choose a grad speaker. There will be a couple hundred graduates. How exciting!!!!!

5k

Sunday, March 15, 2009

So my first 5k was SUPPOSED to be today. After evaluating everything that's happened within the last few months I decided that I would not be participating in this race. I've only been able to run once since my accident at the end of Jan. Although I have been able to run between 20-25 minutes in a row (HUGE accomplishment for me!), I'm not ready for a 3 mile race. But I'm not looking at this as defeat. I've gotten a job and really grown as an educator in the last month and a half. I've really gotten a lot closer to my bf's granddad and pretty much live up with them. I've been able to help out so much with his care and he seems to look forward to when I return home from school. He has been telling me about when he was younger and I seem to bring him joy. I'm valuing this time I've been able to spend with him and that I've been able to help the house run a little smoother. Who knows how long he'll be around (he's turning 91 soon!), so I'm enjoying it and living in the moment. I'm still gradually losing weight and still feel great. I have the rest of my life to run races, so I'm not stressing myself about this one. It was also a really awful rainy day, so I'm glad I made the decision that I did. Another accomplishment- I filed my taxes for the first time as an independent and I did it myself online:) I'm a 100% grown up now. lol. I feel good about my lifestyle change and my goal for the remainder of the year is to increase my exercising. However, I really feel that I've accomplished so much this year and have truly changed my life. I get so much work accomplished now and I am really not stressed at all, regardless of the fact that I'm student teaching and have a lot of major life changes coming soon. I have to be out of my apartment at the end of May, I graduate in May, etc. It's going to be an exciting next few months, but I've really never been happier with my life. Thanks SparkPeople:) No running for me today, but who knows what the future will bring. One day I'll be there.... just the fact that I can run at all is such a success. Babysteps will get me there.

    I'm really glad things are going so great for you. Your blog was inspiring. I would defiantly not worry about missing the 5k. I am sure you did not choose to get into a car accident. I am planning on doing my first 5k 7/3/09, but for now I am just thrilled to be able to run 28 minutes with out stopping.

EMPLOYED!!!!

Friday, March 13, 2009

So I am officially employed! I accepted the teaching position offered to me by a high school in my county. I'll be teaching math (special education). I'm ecstatic! The school is very diverse and the staff is outstanding. They have great technology and wonderful resources. Everyone really approaches teaching as a team effort and wants the best for their students. I cannot wait!!!!!!!!

Teaching Job!

Friday, February 27, 2009

so i had my first official interview today with a local school system's HR office. it was a special education job fair. and guess what?? I got offered an advanced contract!!!! So that county guarantees me a job, but if at any time I decide to go with another county I can just call them and cancel it. So after they place all the excessed and transfers I'll get my choice from the vacancies and then they'll place all other new hires. I'm ecstatic! the interview went very well and now i know that i'll have a job next year. i've already gotten calls from 2 principals wanting interviews, so we'll see how things go. :)

    Congratulations on your new job! We don't have counties here in MN. We have school districts that operate independently of each other. I hope to hear more as you continue! It is a very rewarding career! Take care, Deb :D
