Whelp

I got a job
I will be working at Guadalupe school in West Salt Lake... close to downtown.
The school is a k-4 one class per grade English Second Language School.

A lot of the kids are special needs and have family problems.
I actually enjoy that part of it even though it can be sad sometimes to see kids not have clothes when they come in. Or when you know they can't understand anything you are saying and they are just asking to go home. I do have a major crush on latin kids to bad I can't take some of them home ;).

It doesn't pay well and the kids are bouncing off the walls (Alieve is a nice companion) but I DO get to work in schools and use my education. I am grateful that I got this job (even though it is not PE only) and that I don't have to work at Walmart or something. It gives me purpose to have a job and I am busier but yet seem to get more done... ? I guess having a job gives me energy.

Ya! I know what you mean. I had more energy when I was busy in school. It's weird that way. Congratulations. What else are you teaching besides PE? I'm so proud of my "Ro-z"

Ya! Congratulations Rosie! Even though it doesn't pay well I'm sure it can be very rewarding, plus being busier is always a good thing.

Sadly seeing kids come from less than perfect homes is part of the deal. I remember spending lots of my own money to get kids the things they needed on a regular basis.
