As you can imagine he was THRILLED that he had the opportunity to open this new facility and he quickly slid the plans over to me and said, "look at this place." I must say, it was amazing that a public school could be so nice. I was impressed from the start, so impressed that I quickly....grabbed a sharpie, a stack of post its and started searching for the perfect office for ME! I wrote my name on a sticky and stuck in on an office. He sort of chuckled and said, "your crazy girl"...he told me that many times during our years of working with one another. I just looked at him and said...
NO, I AM SPEAKING THIS INTO MY LIFE
THAT WILL BE MY OFFICE ONE DAY!
So here I sit almost one year later excited to call this place my new home away from home and eagerly awaiting the day to see my new office. Yes, I have accepted an Assistant Principal position that is only 2 miles from my house. God is good!
We will gain access to the building the first of July and I will officially report to work on August 1st for the 2009-2010 school year. I am still under contract and employed at my current school, but am off taking care of my sweet baby.
Look how humongous this place is...435,000 square feet of newness ~ Yummy! We will open up with about 800 kids consisting of only 9th & 10th graders. I can not wait. My case load will be between 200-250 students, I currently have 726 Seniors (by myself).
Let me share with you a few of the reasons I feel so blessed about this opportunity:
This was a very bittersweet decision for me, but I know that God has had his hand in it from the beginning. I will truly miss my colleagues, the kids, the traditions, the parents, my friends and the community. I have had so many wonderful experiences and memories at RSS.
I am going to take a picture of the sticky note on the architectural drawings as soon as I get a chance...It has stayed on that same spot after 11 months.
Once again, I feel so blessed about this new opportunity to make a differece in the lives of young people. It is going to be so exciting to take part in opening up a brand new facility.
Please pray for me and all the other families that will be making the transition to become part of the BULLDOG team.
Back ~ We could not leave the "Big Sister" out of the fun, she is in love with this sweet baby boy and can hardly keep her hands off of him. We are so proud of her and so blessed and privileged to have these 2 little miracles call us Mommy & Daddy.
