I've got a little secret. Well, it's not really a secret anymore. (And no, I'm not pregnant!). I quit my job!!
Yesterday I turned in my resignation. I'm officially hanging up my Girl Scout hat, or should I say uniform. I mean it--this time I am NOT going back!
So here's the plan: Hopefully this fall I will have been accepted into grad school here in Little Rock where I am going to get my Master's degree along with my teaching certificate. I'm hoping to teach K-2 if I have a choice. But first--I have to pass my Praxis exam. From what I understand, it's the GRE version for teachers. Let's just say that after 12 years out of college, I need a little review on probability, algebra, and grammer. My test is June 11 so I will have 3 weeks to cram. Guess what I bought today at Barnes & Noble? The Cliff Notes for the Praxis. Here we go again, Cliff Notes saving my behind!
Then while I wait for my results, I get to enjoy the rest of summer doing whatever I want (on a limited income of course! Like Matt will let me forget that--Ha!). I'm hoping that once school starts back up, and obviously my classes too, I can work it out so that I can substitute teach everyone once in awhile. I figure if I can make it subbing, I surely would survive with my own classroom!
Matt said he wonders which of my students we will hang out with someday--because as you know, I'm really good friends with my 1st grade teacher.
