There's a Master's Degree program being offered to a class of 20 candidates from a few counties surrounding the one where I live. And.....it's FREE! I talked to my principal and he assured me that I can get into the program. This means a two-year commitment to stay put so that I can finish the program.
So....I'm staying. Stinky smell and all. I'm moving over to 6th grade to teach reading which will be a nice change since 6th grade is fully departmentalized. This means only one plan a day with modifications depending on each class. A nice perk for me since I'm sure to have tons of reading and writing to do for my own classes.
I have some other things in the works to live more economically. A fellow teacher and I (she's young and single...this past year was her 1st year to teach), are going to find a house and split expenses. I've also been building my little sewing business as the word continues to get out in this little town that I do that sort of thing.
I do appreciate all the prayers. Be assured that they've been answered and I'm at peace with the decision to stay here. It's actually quite exciting to have the opportunity to get the Master's Degree free of charge. What a blessing!
I've got some other things stewing around in my head to write about, and with the long summer days ahead I'm sure I'll crank out a few things to ponder soon.
love and grace,
