I get really excited about dumb stuff sometimes and today was one of those times. I just so happened to be clicking around the internet trying to get some ideas for making my class even better next year and I went back to a website that I have been to many times that I just love. It is called Mrs. Powell's Management Ideas For Teachers.
Well, I think Mrs. Powell is amazing and that she has great creativity and organization, but little did I know that she is a Christian and has a devotional blog for teachers, too! Yay! It's just fun to me when I really like alot about a person and then I find out that we are on the same page spiritually, too. So, all you teachers out there, I would encourage you to stop by Mrs. Powell's blog for lots of great ideas and a little encouragement to boot!
Could I ask you to please keep Ashley and John in your prayers? They drove to South Carolina today to try and look for a teaching job for Ashley. She went to a job fair earlier this year in a county not too far from Columbia and it seemed like it was a good possibility for her. Today she went to 18 schools and dropped off her resume hoping that she would get to meet some of the principals one-on-one, but not one principal was able to meet with her!! :( Job searching is so hard!
Some of the schools she went to were more in the urban areas, and some were in more rural areas. I had to laugh today, though, because she texted me and said, "I am not lying...I just dropped off my resume with a school secretary who was missing teeth and was wearing men's Levis!"
On another subject, I finally decided that I am determined to read a book. I really love to read, but I never seem to have time to do it. But that is just sad. So, I have started reading My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
My girls love her and recommended this book. Plus the movie is coming out soon, so that will be fun. Has anyone read it??
