We had our summer treats yesterday as Jake tried to cool off with a popsicle and Landry had her cookie-type treat!
Jake working on his golf game at Aunt Lou's house(she cooked us yummy shrimp bisque)
I thought Landry looked just like her brother in this picture.

Big D came over to play with Jake and Landry yesterday too! We had lots of fun.
Several of you have asked me where I will be working in Ruston. There was an opening at Glen View Elementary in the autistic class where they needed a certified teacher. Although I am still working on my special ed. certification, I have already passed the Praxis in the spec. ed. and have a teaching certificate but it is in PE. I started working on my special ed certification 3 years ago when I was a displaced teacher and Parkway needed someone in that department. Didn't really like it at first, but have come to really enjoy my job. I love the people I work with and will miss them dearly. The fact that I am (almost) certified in 2 subjects and can teach grades 1-12 helped me since I was restricted to teaching just high school or elementary. Yes, this will be a challenging job but I had to get my foot in the door. It may or may not be long term, depending on if something else opens up later in the year or if I happen to like what I am doing.


Just say Julie said...

congrats on the job. My academic team has 4-5 autistic kids each year and I love working with them. They keep me on my toes! You will be awesome!
