Big, exciting news!!

Things, they are a'changin' in my life.

For the last 11 years I have taught in Lordsburg, NM.  Lordsburg is 55 miles away from my house- one way.  That makes for veeeeeeeery long days, each and every day. 

I am happy to announce that I will no longer have to make that commute 184 days a year!

I accepted a job here in Silver City this week!!!!  I will only have to drive about 8 miles to get to work, that is just simply incredible.  I can hardly wrap my brain around this dream come true!!

I will be teaching 7th grade New Mexico History at La Plata Middle School.  As many of you know, that's my absolute favorite subject to teach and I taught that before I taught PE. 

Whew, all those years of filling out applications has finally paid off and I got my dream job.  The possibilities of what I will be able to do is limitless.  Simple things, like finally being able to make it on time for Tracey's games, or getting home at a decent hour of the day, or saving $300 a month in gas, are going to make a big difference for me.

I'm finally getting a chance to catch up on everyone's blogs. Being away a week is an eternity in blog land!

Congratulations on your new job! That's fabulous!!! Close to home and the subject you want to teach! I don't know how it can get better!(A pay raise wouldn't hurt, I'm sure! :-))

To answer your question, no, we did not get to snap a picture of the bison herd. Survival instinct kicked in and only our feet were working!! :-) I'm lucky I didn't drop the camera off the 100-foot bridge! Thank you Nikon camera neck strap!
