I started a new job about a month ago and am loving it!!! As we all know my life has NOT been how I thought it would have been. In fact in retrospect I am completely dumbfounded at how it all has worked out but that is the glory in LIFE!!!! If you can make the decision to work hard, keep going even when you don’t know what direction and have extreme deification toucan do anything!! Okay enough preaching from me! HaHa So at work I have been given the responsibility to create our bulletin boards in our hallways. Since it is a middle school you can’t go to cheesy but then you can’t go to artsy else it will just go right over their heads! So after some searching on my trusted Flickr website I found one with a quote I liked and from there it evolved!! “You are the author of your own life story!” At first it’s like oh that’s good but then when you really look at it, for me at least, it takes on a whole new life!!! The kiddos watched the progression from a blank board and then I added paper, scrapbook dicuts, newspaper, book covers of the most checked out library books (and yes Hunger Games made the board yay!!!!) and then the quote!! I never thought I would enjoy watching students look, read and contemplate even dissect a piece of art work that I created. It was an amazing feeling to know that by using some scrapbook paper, words, and some time I just might have changed a students life… Forever!! Which is why I love my job!!!
