It is actually really exciting that you are doing the thing you have always wanted to do. Don't worry about the interviews, just share your passion for wanting to work with youth, everything else will fall into place. The one thing I know without a doubt is that if you find a talent in each student you work with, you will never fail. My mom always told me that if i didn't like somebody I was too lazy to see the good in them. Some students are lucky enough to have someone telling them they are awesome, others need to here it every waking moment to remember that they have value and worth.

I get so excited when I start talking to new teachers! I promise it is the most gratifying job in the world. Are your kids still in school?

Hello Gil,

Thank you for replying to my post. I love that you have been teaching for that long. I wanted to teach since I was a little girl. I chose to stay home with our boys and my husband and I would do it again. So, I am starting a career a bit later in life. No better time than the present. You sound like you really love your job and that is important. I am nervous about my first interviews. God has it under control. If meant to be, it will be. I am doing the foot work to get there.

So sweet you met your husband so long ago and are still together despite what issues may come. Trust me, we have our days too, but staying positive is definitely key. We are currently overcoming job loss and lost everything. When I say everything, I mean everything. God is good and He is teaching me many lessons through this. Especially when it comes to learning to love all people and being put in situations that have not enhanced my life to understand the world a lot better. I am thankful.

I am going to add you as a friend. I would love to share this journey with you. Praying your day is blessed. :)

~Bernie

Last year I started playing with the food tracker but didn't really take advantage of all that sparkpeople has to offer. Excited about your journey. I have been teaching for 20 years and I feel so blessed. It is a very satisfying job. I work with students who are behind in credits but really desire a diploma. They have had so many crazy things happen in their lives, they are often the first to graduate in their family. I'm interested in your experience with the spark coach, was it helpful? What did they do?

Thank you

Oh, My husband and I dated in high school and married after college, we love each other very much (most of the time) You sound like a person I understand, especially when you talked about your upcoming teaching experience. It is God who leads us on, his the arm we lean upon.

Hello everyone in our class of March 10-16, 2013. I am starting today and setting up Spark Page. I also took advantage of the free week Spark coach. I needed some structure and so far I love it. I did my first ten minute video and am gaining momentum and excitement to finally get this weight off and be healthy. I would love to have great friend to share this journey with. Please add me and check out my Sparkpage. Hope you all have a great day.

~Bernie
