imma be a career woman...

i got the job!!!
if you know me well, you know that i've been stressing
and stressing
and stressing
about getting a teaching job.
with layoffs left and right, lack of funding from those beastly legislators, and a sudden influx of teacher candidates, it ain't your grandmama's job market no mo'!
tuesday was a big day for me as i set off to interview at what i've learned is the BEST school in the state...
this morning, i got the call from the district office offering me a contract to teach
FIRST GRADE
at
EASTWOOD ELEMENTARY!
(am i a little excited? yeah, just a little...)

And now presenting:
my future home!


and quite possibly the coolest part...
Eastwood has the BIGGEST field in the history of Elementary schools.
i can't wait for faculty softball games!!

THANK YOU, to everyone who was praying for me!
I couldn't have survived without your love and support.
...I hope you're ready to babysit the class pet!

Before we had kids, and back when we were Utah-ins...Justin and I used to go get Crown Burger take-out and park in the parking lot at Eastwood El and watch the sun set... (hubba hubba... there- that gives you something to think about as you drive in to work and you see that amazing view!)haha.

All jokes aside...

This is the MOST exciting news EVER!! YOU are amazing... i get happy just picturing you in your little class room- teaching your little 1st graders... OH SO CUTE!

LOVE YOU!

P.S. Caitlin and Will think is really cool you'll work at a school named EASTWOOD... big fans of BACK TO THE FUTURE 3
