SO, I have been working there since December 2014 and loving every day of it. The location, the people...both adults & children. LOVE!!! LOVE!!!! LOVE!!!!!
In May, I was sitting at a table with teacher friends relaxing after a band banquet. One was the person who told me and referred me for the job I currently had. The other was teacher at another campus. She asked me how I liked my job and if I had ever considered returning to the classroom and be the lead teacher. I told her yes...but really didn't want to just throw out my resume anywhere and that I really wanted to obtain "God's Silver Platter". I needed to feel that assuredly it was the place for me. I felt I was too old to be somewhere that wasn't a good fit.
SO.......her next words were "I may have that silver platter." "Send me your resume."
This really felt like my platter. I quickly figured out that I personally knew the counselor and principal on her campus. Life was really looking up and there were 3 open classrooms. It doesn't sound much better than that. Right? There were open classes in K, 4 & 5. I would love any of them...especially K. It felt right. As we all know now...........
They just didn't see my sparkling personality!!!!!
It bothered me for about a day. Then it hit me....... God doesn't want me there. Ok, I still love my current job and am quite content at this time. I am content.
A week or so went by & in early June, I found out that a teacher on my campus had plans to quit at a latter part of the summer. I emailed my principal and asked it I could be considered for that classroom. It couldn't hurt, right? Absolutely, if God wanted me to have that classroom..... It would be mine and on a silver platter. I was content to just put my name out there.
A month or so flew past and on July 20...... I noticed an email from my principal. About 15 minutes passed and about 4 emails later.............. at 12:45 that afternoon. I went into training the very next day. I FINALLY RECEIVED MY SILVER PLATTER. I had the classroom of my dreams. I had the campus of my dreams.
God provided that job on a silver platter!!!!!
