My First Real Job

As many of you know, my first job out of college was teaching first grade at Pike View Elementary School. A kind lady named Diane hired me. After the question part of my interview and after me showing off my college portfolio, the lack of teaching experience and all, she said, "Well, I can tell you really love kids. And that's not something I can teach anyone how to do". The next thing I knew, I was hired. And the next five years of my life would be filled in a way I could never have imagined. We went to Mrs. Crites retirement party this past week. What a wonderful lady.

Working with the students at Pike View was a tremendous challenge and blessing in my life. Something that changed my life view forever. I learned way more from those teaching years than I would have thought possible.

After deciding to stay home with my precious kids, I have still felt a strong urge to remain connected to pike view. To my surprise, I was given the chance to
work a small part time job as a Pathwise Mentor this past year at PV. I have loved every second. Seeing my old first grade students has been fun as well as tear jerking. My visits also remind me of how important teachers are...to each child and to our whole community. Im so thankful for all they do.

Here are a few pictures of my last few visits this school year.

You will always be in my heart, pike view teachers and students!
