If you're happy and you know it......

Wow! What a week! I've been studying to take the Texas Certification Exam for principals this Saturday...staying focused, making a plan on how to handle the 110 question exam. And then the phone rings. My school district just promoted me to assistant principal in an elementary school about 15 minutes from my home!! You'd think that would be incentive to get back to studying.......but NO! The phone's been ringing with congratulations as the announcement went out on the district website and I've been answering emails all day! This is SO exciting!


I went to my "new" school on Wednesday and met my new principal and toured the school. It's going to be a great place to work! This evening, they've invited me to a Hail and Farewell get together at our favorite neighborhood mexican restaurant. I'll have an opportunity to meet some of the people I'll be working with.


WOW! Two years of sticking with the Master's Degree program is about to pay off. There's a lot of new learning ahead for me this fall, but I'm SO excited to give it my best!!!


Never give up on your dreams......they CAN come true!!

Congrats on the new job. What a cute way to celebrate - with a Scottish Terrier Happy Meter.

My husband just took the test to become a principal 2 weeks ago. We are still waiting on the results.
