SW Montana vs. The Hi-line

School year 2012-2013 was a challenge to say the least. I worked with students who had a variety of behavior and educational issues; My co-worker was unpleasant; and I did not fair well in the gloomy environment of the town I lived in.

This school year is different in every way! I love where I live, the people & my students! This was my dream job upon college graduation so that is a plus.

The biggest difference is me. I am happy alone here. I do miss my children & grandchildren but I have a peaceful existence here in my trailer.

I've grown in many ways and want to do more. Here's to the continuance of my journey in 2014!

Unexpected Break

I didn't mean to ignore my blogs for so long. Life happens and as we all know- never as one plans.
I am back & will post regularly.

I promise.

First days

The desks were set and all the books piled on the desks. I thought I was ready for the first day.
It did not go as smoothly as I had hoped.

Here's to a quick improvement by all!
