Expectations

So I was thinking on the drive home today about the turn my life has taken. I'm finally living on my own, and although I sometimes feel lonely in a new place, I'm really enjoying myself (for the most part).

I'm LOVING my job, and I feel like this year is the easiest, unstressful (so far) year that I have ever had. That's not to say that I don't have some concerns here or there (one of which happened today, but I'll keep to myself, since it wouldn't be anything nice), but my kids have been great, I like the people I work with (again, for the most part), and I feel like things are running so smoothly.

I also feel like blogging (and stalking!) has taught me a lot about being a great teacher, as well as inspiring me to try things that I never would have thought of before. I've started creating a lot more of my own things when the books/organizers/curriculum aren't working for me or my kids.

I'm wondering what's next for me. I'm really hopeful that this is my home (although that could change once I have observations and get evaluations back!), but if it doesn't work out (knock on wood), I know I'll be okay. Everything happens for a reason, and I truly believe that I am meant to be at this school, with these kids, with these co-workers.

So that's my philosophical bent for today! Now onto OOTD! :)
