I love math. I love the organization of it all. I love that there is only one right answer but a countless ways to get to it. The methodical approach of each step and the elimination of a number leading me to the answer. I love my notebook filled with foldables, notes and knowledge.
But now after 6 long years of always teaching something different, I finally get a year where I am going to teach the same thing twice... but, it's not math.
And although I am sad to give up math (not the STARR test though...doing a little dance on the couch... literally.... are you dancing too? you know that giving up that test is a relief :) ), I am totally stoked about just teaching Science. I love the creativity of it all. The creation, testing, analyzing and justifying of each thing. The search for the answer to why? and the explanation of how you finally figured something out. Sometimes people have a hard time being a Christian and teaching Science, and I totally can relate to some of that. But so much of science justifies that there must be a God to create all of this... to make these systems work in such a specific way that if one thing went wrong something would die or cease to exhist. How awesome is HE!!!
If you have read any of my About Me section, you know the journey I have been on for the last 6 years and how much God has led me, even when I wanted to pull in another way. How I have taught something new EVERY year, and moved so often.
This past year I have become the Children's Director at my church. and I have really loved it! I would NOT be able to do it if I wasn't at the school I am at right now. To just do Science next year not only means I can focus on one subject area, but I can spend more time doing labs, more foldables, and spending more time on my church kids. This past year has been a huge blessing, and I just am so excited to see what God has for me next.
