At a very early age
I wanted to be
was going to be
For 12+ years I have been a public educator
the first six months of my career
a Kindergarten teacher
and the last twelve years
a 1st grade teacher
It has been a wonderful chapter of my life
I have been inspired by hundreds of children
Worked with some AMAZING people
of which many
are lifelong friends
and for all of the above
I am eternally grateful!
But today I am more than a teacher.
|also known as “the rascals”|
I adore them.
Recently I was convicted over the fact that I had pleaded with the Lord for YEARS for these two little fellas…Had endured a combined total of 49 weeks strict bed rest to get them here and yet I was choosing to pay others to take care of them while I worked.
Now I completely understand those of you who do not share my heart to homeschool.
I have been where you are.
Years ago a dear friend of mine chose to home school her three children. I ridiculed her. I warned her that her children would be socially challenged. I was wrong. I have since asked my friend for her forgiveness. Her children are AMAZING, respectful, obedient young adults who love their family and the Lord!
So Monday morning I will begin my 1st year
as a teacher
And I am sooooo excited!
For those of you who have answered the call to educate your children from home…
Please feel free to share your successes as well as your bumps in the road..
I would LOVE to hear from you!
Coming to say hi from 4 little Fergusons! 🙂 Proud of you for taking the leap to stay home and even better…to teach your two precious boys! We have thought long and hard about homeschooling, but for now we are at my alma mater, a small Christian school near by. If we ever cannot afford tuition, mommy becomes Mrs. Mommy, teacher extrordinare! lol 🙂
God bless! Come see me again soon!
Thank you for your encouragement! Praising the Lord for strength and wisdom… one day at a time. I tagged to follow you..and would be so glad if you would graciously do the same for me :O)
