Here I am 58 years old, and I’ve just about completed my first year of teaching special ed. Intellectual disabillities my first semester to fourth grade my last semester.
It’s a calling. I’d never dreamed this would be my happy place if you’d told me this is where I’d be five years ago. But it is.
I found this T-shirt on line. It was me. Maybe I’m not so super cute, but it’s sassy, and I love that!
My job description is to fill in the gaps. In learning. Fourth grade reading and math.
I love helping those who need a little boost up. Lord knows I’ve been given my share of boosts up over the years.
Teaching special ed, or exceptional students, as we now call it, is kind of like believing in unicorns. A ficticous beast with a single spiraled horn in the middle of its forehead. A beautiful white horse with a flowing mane and tail.
Sometimes you just have to believe. Against all odds.
Fortunately for us, that’s not how it is with Jesus. It’s quite easy to believe. All we have to do is confess it with our mouths and follow our hearts.
Here’s to boosts up. We all need them from time to time. I’m certainly thankful for mine!
If you’re in need of one, give me a call! I’d be glad to help. After all, I’ve always loved horses. So naturally there’s a little unicorn lover in me. Maybe in all of us!
because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
Love and laughter,
