Here I am relaxing on my 3rd day of summer vacation. I should’ve written something before the school year ended but I was so stressed and had so many things to do, that I couldn’t. I still have stuff to do; but I have a little bit more of free time to write and reflect about how life has unwrapped these past months.
I am grateful to God that He has helped me accomplish finishing my internship during this school year. So many times, I doubted myself but God put in my path the right people who supported and helped me more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. Looking back at my experiences the good days outweigh the bad days by far.
It’s been one lesson after the other. God took me to the right place and with the right people. Being a teacher isn’t possible if you don’t have great coworkers; meaning other colleagues and a great administration. I am so sad that my principal and two assistance won’t be there next year but I’m hopeful that God will have the right administration to follow this next year.
Yeah, my contract was renewed for another year. I will stay all the time they will have me because I loved working this year as a teacher. The days when I hated my job seem so far away now. I know there were days when I felt tired or not motivated to deal with the kid’s attitudes; but knowing that I wasn’t alone feeling this way; praying each day and seeing how God would take care of the things that I couldn’t help so much. I learned to love what I do.
Unconsciously I expected something bad to happen; it was my own fears motivated by previous bad experiences. Nothing happened. God was there; always. I feel that I am where I’m supposed to be at least for a good amount of time.
God provided me for furniture and money through my colleagues; something I never expected in my wildest dreams. I found a family far away from home; it feels wonderful. I’ve been so blessed. Now we have beautiful and fun plans for the summer and I put all in God’s hands as always. Enjoy this summer with your loved ones and be forever grateful.
