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.
