School's Out! (exciting news, too)

So excited to be out for the summer! I slept in until almost 8 this morning... which is awesome when you realize I have 2 of my own kids. I am also excited because I have some exciting news....

-----DRUM ROLL-----

I am changing schools! Not just that but I am changing counties to be closer to home! I have been trying to do this for 4 years and I finally was able to stand out enough from the crowd! I have now gone from traveling an hour and 20 minutes to 12... yep 12 minutes. Hallelujah!

We had a farewell breakfast yesterday and my grade level made a sweet video for me and the other teacher (Sarah) who is also leaving. It was so funny to see since they took the idea of showing the staff our trade offs. Mine included:

Leaving behind a 60+ drive for a 6 mile drive.
No more eating breakfast in the car.... to eating with my family
No more eating dinner in the car.... to eating with my family
Money in my gas tank...... to money in my pocket

Driving 110.8 miles a day will do that to you!

Anyone else making a BIG change this summer?


  1. Oh congrats!!! That's great news! All the best at your new school {and sleeping in a little}!

  2. Congratulations!! I just read your news. My first 5 years teaching, I drove over an hour each way & it was exhausting. It's so great to only be 7 miles away now :) Best of luck on your new adventure!!! :)
