Student Teaching

As you can see from my blog posts, or lack of blog posts, my life has drastically changed now that I'm an 8th grade English teacher.

I wake up about 3 hours earlier than I would like, pack a lunch, teach 6 of the same class to over 150  kids, get a half hour break for lunch, kill about 2 trees a day making copies, and feel exhausted by the time I'm off. I thought I wanted a nap when I was in college! Now I want one even more!

But, I can honestly say I love it! 

I love the chance to be in these kids' lives. 
I love that my smile may be the only one they see every day.
 I love that they might learn something because of me!
I love that I can show them Christ's love, even if it's in an indirect way.

Yeah, I've had to give up things like blogging, Pinterest, Facebook, having a clean house, feeling awake, my Etsy shop, and other things I enjoy, but it's for a season. I know I'm where God wants me and that's a good feeling!

So, I just thought I would give a quick update on where I've been! Don't worry, I will still be around sharing life, giving  updates, and encouraging you with what God has been teaching me. I hope you will stick with me through it all!
