It's official...

I handed in the paper to my pricipal today.

She knows I've been trying to decide for a long time, so when I walked into her office with form in hand, I told her, "I have a piece of paper here that if I give to you right now, now, will be the final step in this process. Eeeeeee!"

Yes, I actually said, "eeeeeeee!" in a high squeaky voice with one eye closed and my face all screwed up to my principal. HA!

I handed her the form and recieved a great big smile and a big, "Welcome to intermediate!" (And then about a thousand requests: "You like coaching, right? And I'd really like for you to be on the committee for the later literacy project. And.. and ... and... " AHHH! One step at a time, here people!)

The timing is right, I'm SOOO thankful that God keeps blessing me with the perfect opportunitites at the perfect time, and I'm excited!!!

*does a little happy dance*

Congratulations Hillary, that's great news.

Are you going to be teaching the full range of subjects now - Maths, geography, French, science, English - and taking the kids out on field trips? Sounds like fun (erm, I mean sounds like an honest day's hard work, ahem).

Paul said...

...I wonder where you might take the kids for an English field trip...

...I guess there's nowhere better for an English field trip than...

...Yeah, okay, I know, but it was worth a try.
