This will be brief but everything is going well! Shout out to Service Master for providing all Corps Members in Memphis with a $25 Amazon gift card to help us get our classrooms started. It is sincerely appreciated. Trying to decide how to make the best use out of mine at the moment…
I spent this weekend writing my vision statement for my summer school experience, and I am pretty proud of it! It is 7 pages! I will be meeting with my TLC tomorrow to talk about it and make appropriate edits.
Every day I learn a lot and something is challenged in my thinking. I have also made good friends with a girl who will be working with my at my school in the fall, which is super exciting! We get along quite well, and I can’t wait to be colleagues.
As of right now, we have our first sessions starting at 8 and we have to be out of breakfast by 7:30. Starting Wednesday, we will have to be on our busses to go to our school site by 6:30. The fact that as of Wednesday the 6 AM wake up time I have now will seem like sleeping in is a little scary. Luckily, being in the actual classroom should make it all worth it!
I got some big news about my family moving to Florida in a few months to find work a few days ago, which I am happy for them but a little sad I did not get to say a proper goodbye to my Michigan home because I was under the assumption that I would be returning. I also skyped with Andy this weekend, and I miss him very much. Being busy is typically a good distraction, but nighttime and weekends where we have more free time definitely make me a little more emotional. Luckily, I have very supportive people in my life who will be there for me regardless of the distance, and I am grateful for this. <3
