Student Teaching...Graduation... 2nd Grade Teacher!

There have been a lot of changes in my life the past couple months so I thought I would give everyone an update!  I finished my student teaching at Lakeview Elementary.  I completely loved the experience I had there.  I learned so much and I can't believe it is already over!

This is the second grade teacher I worked with and just absolutely loved!!!  We became great friends and had a blast teaching together.  This is us sporting our matching lunch boxes that she got as a going away present.  I wish I could take her with me to my new school.  She is an amazing, fun, and awesome teacher.

These were the cards that my 5th grade students had written me at the end of my teaching.  They were so cute!  These are definitely the "pay-off" moments for any teacher.  

So after finishing all of my student teaching, I finally graduated!  This was a very exciting day for me.  I couldn't believe I had finally finished my four year degree.  

I could not have made it through without all these awesome girls there to help me.  We all became great friends through the program and I will miss seeing them all the time!

I am so grateful to have such a supportive family that is always their cheering me on with whatever I am doing.  I love you all! Thank you for helping me get here!

The most exciting part about graduating is getting a job with your degree.  So I was absolutely ecstatic to accept a job as a 2nd grade teacher at Shadow Valley Elementary in Ogden.  It is a brand new school that just opened.  It will replace Grandview Elementary.  This is the job I have been hoping for since December!  I know a lot of the faculty at this school and they are awesome!  It was also a great blessing to have the job before I left for Germany.  My prayers have definitely been answered.
