School Days

This fall I started my 10th school year working at an elementary school.   I started on the playground.  I've worked in the kitchen.  I think my favorite job was working as a kindergarten teacher's aide for three years.  It was the BEST job ever.

After working in the middle school (6th - 8th grade) for three years; I'm back in the elementary.  I'm working in the office as the attendance clerk.  This is the second best job I've had working at the school.  I get to do my work without someone looking over my shoulder and micromanaging.

In the past, I worked with a moody, jealous, biter woman.  The woman I work with now is for the most part easy going and helpful.  It's a much better working environment.

Although I technically work two title positions;  I am now working full time hours (7hrs).

I am SO grateful for my job.  I love it! 

I work with great people.  I have a great boss.  I'm able to do the kind of work I love. (office/paper pusher)

Most importantly, I hope I'm able to make a positive, happy memory for the 500 little people that walk those halls each and every day.

How wonderful that you're having such great career success. I can't wait until the day that I can speak those exact words. I'm gonna keep the faith. I commend you because teaching is not easy. I don't think I could do it but you seem to be having worst problem with the co-worker.
