Living while Learning to be a Christian and a Teacher
Monday, November 12, 2012
Two blog posts in one day! Boy oh boy, am I on a roll this Monday. I had to take a minute and share a project one of my sweeties made. We were talking about the Native Americans and he said that the class should make houses for each Indian group. I replied, "I dare you to do it!" Little did I know, my dare could mean so much. The next week he marched in with a beautiful igloo. The moments like that make teaching so worthwhile!
He was so proud of his igloo. He talked about how long it took to make. He used sugar cubes and icing, and he even made it in the spiral formation we talked about. We played a trick on the class when he brought it in because no one else had completed one, so they all wondered if they actually had a project due! I had a bunch of scared kiddies on my hands!
I'm 24 years old and a first year social studies teacher. I work in Chesterfield, VA. I have no kids, but I have one adorable older yorkie whom I have adopted! His name is Toby and he is the third love of my life. I recently got engaged to my high school sweetheart, and I can't wait to say "I do!" He is the second love of my life, and last but not least, God holds the top spot in my heart. I have learned that there can be no one above God in your life. God, by the very definition of His being is stronger than I. How then can I live without Him? I am learning everyday to trust in HIM! Welcome to my blog!
