i am now officially employed!!! :woot: :woot: :woot:
one year ago today was my last day of employment. i’m not going to bore all of you with the details (and there are aplenty), but i just had to share my excitement. i will be a 2nd grade teacher assistant at a year-round school. i personally happen to love the year-round system. both my parents are now teaching year-round. i will actually be on the same track as my dad. my mom teaches art, so she’s basically always there except for a few days sprinkled here and there. for those of you who don’t know, my brother is in the air force and his first post will be to okinawa. this is why being on the same track as my dad is so great. we can all go visit him while the two of us are tracked out (on break), and mom is the only one who will actually have to take off. :happydance:
i’m waiting for a call back about scheduling my orientation. i’m guessing i’ll be told my official first day then.

i’m already thinking about how much nice yarn i can afford to buy with my first paycheck. oh, who am i kidding. i’ve been thinking about that for weeks! :teehee:


Congratulations!! :cheering:

Congrats!! I hope you enjoy your new job!!:yay:

:happydance: Congrats!!! :woot:
