No, really. I’m Texan but not that Texan. But I do say howdy here
and there and y’all really is a real word, and I am terribly excited to have
the opportunity to be part of Reality 101 this year!
To share a
little bit of background on myself getting into teaching…
When I was
applying for teaching positions, I had my heart set on a PPCD unit. I adore
working with little ones. After applying to 30+ positions in the area, I was
called for one interview and offered one position. I was hired to open a new
class that they were calling the 12+ Class (now 18+ Program). It would be
solely for students ages 18-22. Can you say “opposites”?
say, everything happens for a reason. I now adore and have become very
passionate about working with my 18+ Program students. I very quickly realized
that many of these parents and students had no idea what they will do after
their student aged out of public school. So my left-brained, problem solving
personality revved up and started to try to fix it.
