Today is the Day!

For a while now, I have known that my ultimate career goal is to become a teacher. It wasn't until Ryan and I found out we were going to be moving to the Boston area, that I began to put a plan in place to achieve this goal. Even as I started researching schools close to our new home, it didn't become real to me until after we got married and moved to New England!

In order to be absolutely sure that this is the path I wanted to take, Ryan and many other family members encouraged me to substitute teach for the remainder of the school year and get hands-on experience in the environment. At first, I wasn't on board and didn't like the idea of waiting to be called for work every day and never knowing whether or not I would have a job for the day until the last minute. Fortunately, substitute teaching has been an amazing experience and really only enforced the passion within me.

Since March, I have worked almost every single day at 5 different Elementary Schools in our town for grades Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. I've begun to make some great connections and am SO excited to get my Masters and have a classroom of my own! 

Well, that process begins today. Registration at the school I've chosen to attend begins this week and today, I turned in my Registration form for the classes I will be taking next semester! 


I'm SO excited to start classes and become an Elementary teacher! Stay tuned for updates along the way!

  2. I'm so proud of you. You are so gifted around children and could not be better suited for the job. A lot of future kiddos are going to find themselves very fortunate to be in Mrs. Smith's class!

  3. I think you will make a difference in many of your students lives,...and some of them will make a difference in yours. As I've told your mother, there is no more honorable profession than that of an educator.
