Once upon a time, before there were grands or children or even a husband, there was this idea that I would one day teach English. Then the changes came, one by one. Good ones, but sometimes distracting. First, my mom got me a job at the bank where she worked so I could earn money to pay for college.
Next came the husband, right in the middle this educational adventure. He was military, and so we moved a lot. Since I was in a rush to get my degree, I didn't take any Ed courses, just the courses necessary to get that oh-so-essential piece of paper. Meanwhile, I kept working at banks as we moved around. It seemed like they always needed people.
Sometime later, children came, but by now, the banking thing was a career, and I was deeply entrenched.

Then, decades later, I got laid off, and I got to quilt full time for almost a year and a half. It was awesome!

Somewhere along the line, I remembered that old dream of teaching English, and started applying for various teaching positions with our local school district. One day I went to an interview, and the next thing I knew I had a job offer. From there, it got crazy. In fact, it's been a little like trying to sip water from a fire hose.
Until then, please don't give up on me. I'll be back.
