So, a week from tonight I will be in OK preparing to move into my next home! I'm excited. I'm ready to have my own place again. I've been 'homeless' for over 2 months now. It's been hard, but I'm thankful I do have friends here to say with. So far, I've stayed at 3 different places...and next week I may stay at my cousin's house while they are out of town.
Summer school is going well. I've grown attached to a few more kids, and have worked with some wonderful professionals. It's been refreshing to work among such caring individuals.
The next month has me moving to OK, coming back to Texas to Camp Esperanza, heading back to OK to finish getting settled in, coming back to Texas the first week of August to consult to the distric I am leaving, and then reporting to new teacher inservice August 8 in my new district. Can you say HECTIC? It's all good though...I'm excited about my new job, location, etc. It looks to be a great last half of 2006.
Last month, 2 of my students (twins) and their mother came to my hometown for a bike rally benefitting Making Promises Happen, a camp for individuals with special needs. The girls have been to camp and gone snow-skiing as recipients of scholarship money that has been raised by people (including my parents) in my hometown. They had a great time. This is me with the girls and their mother (with my mother in the background).
