Thankful Thursday

I'm so thankful for my school system.  They have been absolutely incredible during all of this craziness.  I've mentioned how fabulous my principal has been, but she really has been incredibly patient and flexible with me!  The executive team at the BOE has been wonderful too, and I really appreciate the compassion they have shown my family.  It's been such a relief knowing that I have so many people in my corner when it comes to  my job situation.

Yesterday marked my first official day back to school.  I'll be part-time for the remainder of the year, using leave for the time I'm not working.  My sub will continue to work in the afternoons...but we found out yesterday in a meeting that the BOE has offered to keep him on full-time so that we will team teach when I am there!  I won't have to worry about writing sub plans when I'm gone for a doctor's appointment, and there will be someone there in case I can't come in at the last moment.  Isn't that incredible?!  Our God is providing for every need we have. 

Thank you Lord for allowing me to work for such a wonderful school system and for providing a way for me to continue to teach and take care of Abby!!!

Coming from someone for whom writing sub-plans was their least favorite part of teaching, WOW! That is truly amazing news. What incredibly open-minded thinking on the part of your county school system and BOE.
