Eureka!

It finally happened. Someone hired me full-time! I begin work at a high school on Wednesday. My official title is parent educator. However, my job will entail much more than working with parents and teachers. I think the principal of the school already wants me to work closely with him on various projects.

I have gone through some crazy stuff between the time I interviewed for the job and the time I was hired. I'm not complaining, though. Still, I have enough employment-related stories to fill a book! Perhaps I'll share my latest "adventures" in a future post.

I haven't given up my job at the casino yet. My bosses at the casino are trying to keep me, too, to work evenings and weekends. It's nice to be wanted.

So, my friends, I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I've had a whirlwind of activity. For everyone who has hung with me - and you know who you are - thanks so much. You have shown me the treasure of friendship.

Congrats on the new job Naomi! It sounds interesting and challenging for you. Also I am sure you know a great deal about relationships between parents,children and educators so you will do well in the parent educator position.

Congrats on the gig. It's a place I'd like to be. I'm sure you will shine, educate, communicate and turn a teenage head or two...

Cristina and Hassan: You're very sweet. Thank you.

The principal of the school treats me as if I'm a gift from heaven. LOL
He's already planning projects for me.
The first day was GREAT. I'll enjoy the "honeymoon" while I can. :-)
You guys keep me going!

Hey Naomi! What's new? Hope everything's going great and you'll tell us all about it in a new post. :D

Hi Alina! A LOT is going on right now. I have so much to say, but I'm really busy with the new job and my family. Things should slow down in a day or two.

Thanks for the nudge. :-) I'm still trying to post on a more regular basis.

Stay tuned!
