10 years ago the twin towers fell, I can still remember Mary Martin stopping a reading session during snack time to pull me into the hall way and share the world events.
10 years ago I wondered what God had planned for me and John.
10 years ago John got saved and started his amazing journey with the Lord.
10 Years ago I put 100 percent into teaching and making life fun for my 25 wonderful students. I remember reading novels to them, practicing our spelling words in chocolate pudding and shaving cream, doing scientific experiments and memorizing verses with my class.
10 Years ago I was so blessed to become a teacher at such an amazing school and I met some amazing forever friends that I can't imagine what my life would be like without them in it. They know who they are.
10 Years ago instead of dressing up for Halloween we had the kids dress up as Christian Heros and share their stories. I can still remember hearing each student share what they learned about Abraham Lincoln, Corrie Ten Boon, Eric Liddell, etc.
10 Years ago we celebrated Spirit day and the kids got to dress down and where blue and gold and paint their faces. School was a safe fun place to celebrate our achievements, share our dreams, make new friends, and establish our goals for the future. Can't you feel the excitement in this picture?
10 Years ago I realized that I was made to teach and that it brought joy and contentment to my soul! Every year I spent in the classroom was a good one! Each student was loved and prayed for, and you could bet I'd be one of the first to arrive and one to show up on weekends!
