As many of you know, I became a full-time teacher this year. I previously worked in the legal field as a Paralegal and then I was a substitute teacher for almost all of the last school year. A little backstory (there always is, right?), I had planned to become a teacher when I graduated high school. I went to college in Virginia, became a psychology major, all with the intention of going for my Masters in Education and becoming a teacher. Life changed things and I ended up “falling” into the legal field instead.
So now I am a full-time middle school teacher, and I’ve been working for about a month now, between planning weeks and having actual students. Things have been great and also super busy! Being a first-year teacher, I have a lot to learn and lots of ideas that I am learning how to execute. I also have classes I have to take along with my outside school life where I run this blog and plan fun networking events every month for all of you ladies! I’m trying to hard not to drop the ball, but I know this first month I’ve left a few things go. I hope now that I am getting into more of a swing of things, that I will be able to continue juggling it all and succeed in both of my careers, because I love them both. I absolutely love seeing my students understand and repeat concepts that I have taught them, especially when they get so excited they can’t wait to answer a question. I also love hearing how much you ladies enjoy our Girls Night Out Networking Socials and seeing so many familiar faces each month. So no worries -they will continue!
