Here we are, Monday! 

So I got a teaching job! 

It is only on a very part time basis, one day a week. Here in BC teachers can share a position, so I am sharing a grade 2 classroom with another teacher. I am excited as this is my first "permanent"position since graduating 6 years ago from Education! I am taking baby steps as I am not ready to teach full time, not sure I would want to.

I am almost finished my spray painting project, which had a glitch. I ran out of a sheen of spray paint and then could not find it anywhere. I emailed Rustoleum, who put me in contact with Home Depot, who in turn searched the system and told me it was discountined. So I changed my juicy **** paint to gloss. You'll have to see the colour later. I have one more thing to do and then I will show you all!

  7. Congratulations Barb!!!! I think that must be so adorable to be around all those little cutie pies all day. I didn't realize you had only graduated 6 years ago. I thought this was something you did since leaving school. I'm sure you'll be amazing and the kids will love you. Can't wait to see your project.

  8. Having a predictable teaching position is so much easier than being on call, but the beauty is you can still do both! Congratulations, Barbara - I bet this is going to be the best looking classroom in the building, and the kids are going to love you :-) I know you're painting your chairs - I can't wait to see the results!

  16. Congratulations Barbara! It sounds perfect! A great way to ease into it. I was an art teacher for a while, and my husband is a retired teacher. It's a great schedule, that's for sure. I hope all goes well, and that you love it.
    Love your red chairs already!!!!
