My diploma has arrived. It looks wonderful! Better yet, I received my Nebraska teaching certificate today. Yippee!!! I am now licensed to teach K-8th grade in Nebraska. Now to find a job. Sigh. !
I've been teaching at the Phoenix Academy for the month of June. Four weeks of summer school is a pretty good amount of time. It's just enough to gain more experience and earn a little money, but I'll still have the month of July with my kids before school begins once again. Wouldn't it be great fun to spend the month preparing for my new job? :)
Summer school at the Phoenix Academy is an awesome learning experience. Not only have I been trained in Spaulding Phonics, but I have also needed to create lessons for children who struggle mightly with reading and math. It's a really neat school. The faculty really care about the kids. That's what it's all about, isn't it? Some of my students will enroll in the fall and that makes my heart smile. I know their needs will be met and they will be able to return to their "regular school" on top of their game. The holes in their education will be filled.
