Happy Birthday, Jenny Diehl! Happy New Job Heather! And Happy New Job Jessie! Yes, you heard right. I start Wednesday as a full time ELIP aide in Wauwatosa. This means that I work with the first grade teachers and the reading teachers to substitute for teachers that are involved in a tutoring program. I also get to provide classroom support, reading groups and the like. It doesn't sound altogether glamorous, but I'm excited. It means that I have full time work, benefits, and an important connection to the school district, good for getting a teaching job next year, hopefully. Most importantly, I can tell my parents and all of those people who insist on ALWAYS asking me if I've found a job yet that YES! I do have a job!
