I'm Blessed

Hello to all, how are you? I'm new at this blogging experience. From my understanding,blogging is simply expressing myself and that is what I'm preparing to do. I figured what better audience to express myself to than those who are experiencing or have experienced what I'm going through. I will be blogging as I'm thinking. My blog may go back and forth depending on how fast my mind is running. Well, here goes....

This is my first year teaching. I have experienced so much within this one year. I am honored to have been chosen to participate in the Smithsonian Museum of Art. I'm very excited about the trip. I must admit, I'm clueless as to what to expect, but I'm willing to take the challenge. I have been stressed out trying to manage this new position and my personal life. It's like I sort of got so lost in school related work that my social life disappeared. I don't mind because the joy and feeling of fulfillment from my successes are unmeasurable. I believe I have accomplished so much this year considering my route to teaching. I mean I wasn't even expecting to be a teacher at all. When the opportunity was presented to me, I was a bit nervous and reluctant to accept it. I thank God I did. My teaching experience has been great. I have experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly. ;-)

I thank God for pouring down his blessings on me and allowing me to be as successful in my new career as I am. I have been juggling preparing lesson plans, teaching objectives while incorporating real life situations, and completing courses to better myself. I look forward to my next year as a teacher. I've gained so much confidence during this year. No, No, I have not gotten cocky, just confident. We all need high self esteem.
