Is it just me, or does it seem that training is really long? I know I shouldn't complain it's only once a week for 3 months every Wednesday from 4:30-7:00. It's just that "C'mon, I have been teaching for 7 years and so far I have written down 3...yes three sentences to take notes!" I'm not trying to brag about my intellectual status as an educator...but I have to say that this class has been a complete waste of time. I will persevere and try to change my obviously BAD attitude but it is very difficult to do so. In my particular district you are required to take Phase 1 Literacy training if you have only been employed with the district for 1-3 years. I feel that it is grossly inaccurate on their part not to account for the years you have taught outside of their district. Let's be honest....if I don't know how to teach my students how to read, or to refine their overall skill level when I have been teaching for seven years I shouldn't be teaching!!! Anyhow, I find that I am invigorated by the light at the end of the tunnel......as Steven and I will be heading to Washington for about a week in October. Hurray!! So for those of you on that edge of the woods....we are coming SOON!! WAAA HAAAAA HAAAAA^^^
In case you haven't heard Steven and I are having a baby! The baby is due around April 7th. These are some of the first pics we were able to take. Hopefully you can now tell it has all of it's parts, and is no longer the size of a peanut! I am on my 13th week, and we should know if it is a boy or a girl at our October appointment (end of October!). Since I'm in my second trimester I'm feeling a lot more energetic, and I have been able to get some uninterrupted sleep. Hurray! So far I feel really great, and hopefully our baby will grow and be healthy. I wish we could have saved the pictures we saw on Friday. They were much clearer, and our baby was sucking it's thumb when my stomach grumbled, it had to take its thumb out of its mouth to hiccup!^^ So very cute.
I dedicate this blog to those that love life and aren't afraid to dream big........anything is possible! So to all my friends and family that scatter the vast global community.....I promise to post the minute and sometimes exciting days of my life. I may not be brilliant or beautiful.....but my friends say that I do have a good portion of wit and sassafras!
