So, I've been tutoring for several years now, and while it makes GREAT money and is really fun and neat to see kids improve so dramatically, I'm antsy for a change.
I decided to look for a teaching job for this next year. I thought and prayed about it, and kids with special needs kept coming into my head. I was thinking about going back to school for a special ed credential, whether I got a teaching position or not. I was talking to my friend Tamara about it and feeling excited for the possible change and new learning. The next day, I got a phone call from a school called Pathway. It's a Christian private school that caters to students who learn differently. Most of the kids struggle with things like dyslexia, mild autism, or other learning disabilities. The school is for kids who fall through the cracks in other kinds of schools. I have such a heart for this and was amazed at the timing of the call, based on the conversations I had with other people prior.
I interviewed...then was called back for another interview with the staff, and was offered a position as a lead teacher for next year yesterday. God is faithful and always blesses us when it is clear that He will receive the glory. I am amazed at His timing and grace upon me.
I'm looking forward to the year ahead and all the growth and learning that will take place. No more "Miss Kami", which is what my tutoring kids call me (I don't know how it started!)...bring on Mrs. Green :) I'll take pictures of my classroom in August when I have it decorated!!
