It finally happened!

I am so excited! I got a job offer yesterday! I will be teaching in a very small, rural school-it's only 18 miles from my house and I can get there in under 30 minutes. I'll have four Kindergartners, one first grader, and one second grader. They are also okay with me (even encouraging me) to open enroll my third grade daughter.

I'm pretty sure we will decide to do that as that will take care of childcare before and after school. I think it will be a great experience for both my daughter and myself. She'll get to experience a country school and I'll get to have her as a student. She loves playing with younger kids and is a good helper as well. It makes more work for me though, as I'll have another grade to plan for, but it will be worth it.

Even if I continue to teacher there year after year, I just want her there for a year. The fourth grade teacher at her school is amazing and I want her to have her next year.

I'm just happy to be done subbing! I haven't had my own classroom for 17 years. I've only been trying to get back into teaching the last four years as I stayed home with my kids before that.

The pay is, of course, less than other schools but I believe the students will be better and they have all the latest technology.

Good luck to the rest of you!!

I had a rural classroom many years ago before I got married and loved it. The kids and families are so nice and treat you like family.

I grew up in a small town in North Dakota - my mom was my 3rd grade teacher.
