"Just got off the phone with my daughter, Kristen. Up until today, she was a first grade teacher in a school district in the Tampa area. Today was the ten day count district wide and her school came up short. Because she took a transfer, she was one of three low on the totem pole at her school. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. Before Kristen and Chris moved to Florida, she had completed over half of her Master's Degree in Library Science and had many hours of training in reading. The saving grace is that she is now the 1/2 time assistant librarian and 1/2 time reading consultant at her school. Before she transferred to this school, which is at most fifteen minutes from her house, she had a horrendous commute. She was so excited about the new school, the closeness and the kids. I am so very glad this has worked out for her. She does have to pass a state test in order to continue to keep the assistant librarian job and her beloved step papa, E, offered to pay for it.
She thanked him and promised not to move back in with us! lol Are we that transparent? Guess so.
Nothing but good news this Friday from Paradise."
