Feeling Thankful. I just started my new job about three weeks ago. I have been waiting for this blog hop to write about it, because I am just so thankful for this job right now. I know you guys know I had prayed hard about it and some of you had prayed with me. I wanted just the right job for me. I feel like God was wanting me to take a break from the responsibilities of teaching in a classroom, but when this one position became available, I felt like it was right. It is a paraprofessional job at the school I used to attend. It is at the Elementary in a 3rd Grade classroom and I work with a student with autism. My responsibility is just this one student. I am able to put all of my focus on him and his well being in the classroom. I really love working with autism. It was where most of my training has been over the years. Once I got started I found out that there were about 3 staff working there that I went to high school with, so that has also been fun, plus meeting new friends as well. The best part about my job of course is the student I work with. He is so funny and so smart. I have figured out some things to make his class work better and we are having a blast. He is in the regular classroom most of the day, so I also get to chat with the other kids. It is truly the best fit for a job for me right now. I love it and I am so happy. The best part is... once I got started, I really felt like I could close the chapter on my last job and move forward. Before then, I was thinking about whether or not I had done the right thing. This has been great and it is good for me to be working again. I do love staying home, but I really do not need to be thinking about what used to be or what could have been. Now, I can move forward and this job I am actually not tired at the end of the day. I am not stressed out and I feel like the teachers value my work and input. So there it is. That is what I am thankful for. There are actually a lot of things I am thankful for, but maybe I will spread those out in different posts over the month. Thank-you for visiting!! Have a GREAT November.
