For six years I have tagged the majority of my classroom posts with #room303_adventures. I have loved teaching kindergarten in that room—loved my team—my colleagues—my families—the traditions. Being blessed with your very own classroom at the school were you student taught is pure magic . That part of my teaching story though is coming to end in May. After several pro-con lists, conversations, and so much prayer I have decided to make a change.
The 2019-2020 school year will find me teaching kindergarten in a new district, new school and new classroom. I am joining Coach Husband and no longer making the hour commute one-way each day. A little less than two years ago we made the decision for Coach to make a change into a new coaching position and discussed if I would also be making that move. At that time the Lord very loudly told me to wait. That wait was whispered over and over over the past two school years but in February that wait very quietly changed to go. While I ignored the “go” for the first few weeks the Lord got louder and more insistent until it I was unable to say no without accepting I was completely out of the Lord’s will. And so here we are.
Lauren Daigle’s song, Trust In You has been my anthem over the past eight weeks and specific lyrics have spoken to my heart.
”Letting go every single dream.
I lay each one down at your feet.
Every moment of my wondering
Never changes what you see.
Truth is You know what tomorrow brings
There’s not a day ahead You cannot see.
So let all things be my life and breath
I want what you want Lord and nothing less.
Your ways are always higher
Your plans are always good
There’s not a place where I’ll go
You’ve not already stood.”
It’s a peace I cannot explain or understand and while the thought of not being with my people & team has me all sorts of emotional—I am so excited to see what is in store for me.
The new hashtag is still in the works and until then you will find me soaking in every minute at the school I’ve called mine for so long. But look out McBay—I’m coming & cannot wait to dive right in.
