So, I went to Baylor only interested in finding a husband. School was just a means to my end. I chose Secondary Education honestly hoping I would never have to use it. I loved my times in the classroom and my student teaching semester so that love for teaching was definitely tucked away in the back of my brain.
Fast forward 15 years. . .Gabby is going to school this year and we need a little extra money, so I have been meaning to apply to substitute teach in the Durango school district.
A few weeks ago, I got an email from the principal at Grace Prep in Durango. She said that she had heard (from our Men's Director, Luke) that I was interested in subbing. She asked me to have coffee with her to talk about that possibility last week.
She and I met and I loved it! But almost immediately in the conversation, she said that she didn't want to beat around the bush and that she felt I was an answer to prayer. (I was confused.) To make a long a wonderful story short, she offered me a very part time (one hour a week during the Spring semester) job co-teaching the Seniors Worldview class with her (did she ask the wrong Braner?!!?). So fun and so perfect!
I'm so excited to be working with her! I'm excited that I am going to be using my mind! I'm excited to be able to make a commitment to teach that is only an hour a week! This isn't going to do much for finances, but I think it is going to do wonders for my spirit! I'm on faculty!
So, that is my fun news for the week! I cannot wait for January to be here so that I can get started. In the meantime, I need to attend all of Andy's Institute classes this summer so that I can know something about what it is I am supposed to be teaching!!!
