New Job

I am a teacher!  After 5 long years in college, all the hard work paid off.  After attending a job fair for NYC teachers on Tuesday the 12th, I was offered a job the following day at an interview.  I am now a 6th grade special education teacher in the Bronx.  I am super excited!

I start officially on the 28th and the kiddos come to school on September 2nd.  This week I have been down in the city at teacher orientation, I am relieved to know I am not the only nervous person, and after going over activity after activity I know my content. 

So now Tim and I both work for NYC and both work in the Bronx, although he is in the North BX and I am in the South Bronx.  My career officially begins in 1 week.  Eeek!

Lake George 2008

We are back at home and back to normal after a great week in Lake George with our friends. We went Saturday and came home Saturday. We spilt a home with 10 other friends, everyone taking a night to cook dinner for everyone. I have never ate so much good food in one week. Tim cooked for our night since as you know I don't cook.

GoKarting was one of the many highlights for the week. After our race we were kicked out, NO BUMPING!! We went rafting in inner tubes, what an adventure. My tube popped and I had to lay across Tim for the last part of the river. We survived though after fearing a waterfall and having dogs come out to scare us.

My parents were up at the Sagamore for the week with my brother who came to visit us twice for a little while. Tim and I spent time up at their hotel too. It was nice seeing them and Dan totally impressed my dad with his wake boarding skills.

Can't wait for LG 09!!!
