"Life move pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it"
My life has moved faster than usual in the past week. I think it was last Thursday when they posted a new job opening at my school. The district is creating a new position at all of the middle and high schools to have a new College and Career Counselor on staff. I knew that they were going to be creating the job, but I assumed it would require counseling credentials. When the announcement was finally made, it was listed as a "specialist" instead of a counselor and I met all of the requirements. Thinking that this might just be the change that I need right now, I discussed with the family and eagerly applied. Much drama ensued and the job description changed several times during the week, but in the end, it was a job that I wanted very much to do and it was offered to me!
So now I need to move out of my classroom and get a new teacher ready to take over AP Biology, learn how to handle all the new job responsibilities, attend training sessions and planning meetings and move into an office. I also need to wrap up the semester, submit final grades, pack and move furniture to the house in Virginia..... I am sure there is more, but right now I am just making lists and contemplating the future. I did get to start in on the green scraps though. I got all the ironing and trimming done. I was just ready to start sewing blocks together when Anna declared that she was coming home for the weekend. Most importantly though, I need to make some serious progress on Sydney's t-shirt quilt, because graduation is just 6 short days away.
