The Call

The other day I missed a call from a 402 number and I immediately recognized that it was Davis School District. I didn't have a voicemail so I just thought no big deal. Later that day I received a text from one of my friends saying she got a call from the same number for a job interview for second grade. I immediately called the number and sure enough the spots were filled. They only interviewed the first few people that picked up the phone. I was so upset. I guess there is something better......

Sure enough I was right. I received a call the next day from Mr. Denhalter. The principal at Hannah Holbrook Elementary. The position again was for a second grade.

The interview went really well. The second grade teachers were so nice. As I walked out of Mr. Denhalter's office I felt discourage. I felt that I could have said things a lot better. I went home and had a bad feeling that I didn't get the job. I told myself that I can't worry about it.

Well I didn't have to worry long because I received another call from Mr. Denhalter the next day. He said he wanted to meet with me and just talk about a few things. I didn't know what to think. I didn't know if he still wasn't sure or if I was being turned down.

I can now say that I am a Second Grade Teacher at Hannah Holbrook Elementary.

Here are the fun, cute teachers I will be working with. (Mrs. Rafferty is not pictured.)

I get to work with my mom and could not be more excited. Who would have thought that I would be working right across the hall from my mom. We will have so much fun!

I am so lucky to have a job. I landed my dream job and can't wait to start preparing for August.

Yay for Graduation!!!

So I am happy to announce that I am an official graduate of Weber State University. It only took five years to do, but I am pretty glad to be done. I can't wait to start teaching and do something that I love.

My parents with the graduates:

My brother and I graduated on the same day. He got his degree in Marketing.

My cute husband still had to go to work after my graduation the poor guy.

My grandparents came all the way from Springville to celebrate. They LOVE taking pictures. We were so sick of pictures by the end of the day, but if it weren't for my grandparents we would never have any pictures. So I am grateful for them taking a billion pictures.

(Sorry for the blurry picture. As you can tell no one in the family graduated in photography.)

It was a fun day. I still can't believe my days of studing and homework are over. As a teacher I will still have a lot of homework, but I will be the one corecting it all. Now all I have to do is wait, and wait, and wait for a principal to call me for an interview.
