Cool For School

I feel like the elephant crushing me has been lifted and the butterflies plotting against my stomach have taken flight somewhere else.

I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As of August 28th, you will have to call me Ms. Rose because I am going to be a long-term sub for a middle school band, BOOOOOYAAAAA!!!!!!

Now, for anyone thinking, "OMG, middle school band?!", be excited because this is just what I need!

Scarlet that's freaking awesome.

A word of advice from a former teacher (and this is a mistake I made my first year...) Start off the year really strict and mean with the kids. You can always get nicer as the time goes by. But it's completely impossible to go from too nice to more strict.

Trust're going to love it.

So is this what you were worrying about this morning?

Congrats! Having a job that you are passionate about is so much better than just having a job that pays the bills.

Miss Scarlet said...

Cindy- Your mom's going to tell you, I think, so act excited;) Yeah, it's going to be hard for me to me "teacher-like";)

Dara- Yes, one of the things from this am.

CBK said...

That's awesome! I have fond memories of middle school band. Hope it's a rewarding blast.

Washington Cube said...

Oh yeah...and don't tell the kids, "I have this blog...."

Marissa said...

congrats, girlie!! soo exciting!

Miss Scarlet said...

Serena- THANKS!!!!!

Ant- Gracias:)

CBK- I have fond memories, too. Well, mostly. I remember being called into the office bc my friend accused the teacher of being inappropriate with her. Weirdo. And I remember the normal alto sax player hassling me bc I got to play his part for the winter concert because he was a Jehovah's Witness. haha, but mostly good memories:)

Washington Cube- I know, seriously! I need to test out some Google searches on myself. I've never been so glad for there to be that German rock band with my name to take up the top Google hits.

Marissa- YAY! THanks!

Vanessa said...
