It's the end of 2012, and what a year it has been. So many things took place this year, good and bad. I struggled last school year with not really teaching much. The first half of the year was especially tough, but then I was so blessed to find teacher blogs (it will be my one year blogoversary in 3 days). The teacher blogging world is such an amazing place, all of you helped me get back into a good place as I finished the year. I also saw my mom struggle with and lose the battle to Alzheimer's. That was a tough thing, but I'm just so thankful that she is no longer suffering. I experienced being back full time in my classroom this year, and am loving that so much! I felt so much sadness from the tragedy at Sandy Hook. I also had the sad experience of seeing another friend who was only 29 pass away, leaving her parents and husband. I was privileged to meet some amazing new friends from the blogging world, and from church and school. So as a new year starts I hope to have more times to learn and make friends and keep old ones. May all of you have a wonderful new year as well! Happy New Year!
I am a third grade teacher at a small Christian school. I LOVE teaching!!! I still live in the same house I grew up in. I was taking care of my mother who had Alzheimer's disease. The Lord took her home to be with Him August 10, 2012. It was not easy, but I'm just so thankful the Lord allowed me to be home with her and take care of her to the very end. I have a wonderful little dog Bella, who has been a lifesaver! I strive to seek the Lord's will for my life, and pray that I always will. That's the best place to be!
