Half Birthday Surprise!

Today is my 1/2 birthday!!!!
And I must say, not one person has wished me a Happy 1/2 Birthday! How rude *said in my best Stephanie Tanner voice*!!
It's okay though, because today I got a GREAT 1/2 birthday surprise!

I was subbing (at a school I sub at quite frequently), when the principal and another lady came to my classroom and asked to speak with me in the hall! Um, yikes! I'm not even a student and I still get nervous if the principal wants to chat with me! I was thinking "Oh God! Did I violate the dress code or something?? Maybe I parked in the wrong parking spot today!?!" But no. They were coming to ask me if I would be interested in a long term sub job to replace a 6th grade math teacher who either got fired or quit or something like that! Ummm....let me think about it. YES PLEASE!!! I was so excited! Not only is it a tiny pay increase, but I will be working alongside the math instructional specialist for the school, who apparently has a lot of pull within the district on who gets hired for the following school year! She and I will be co-teaching from now until TAKS testing time (mid-April) and then after that I will take over the class on my own! Hopefully I will make a good enough impression that the job will be mine for the next school year...fingers crossed! Anyway, so that really just made my day.... and my half birthday! Now, who wants to bake me a cake? Or better yet, buy me a celebratory drink! ;)


  1. Congrats girl!! That's how I started teaching too! I was an interim for a full semester. It's incredible experience!

    Also, I just noticed on your about me section that you were a delta gam in college. Me too!!

  2. That's great news! I just got done doing a long term sub job. You'll have lots of fun :) And happy 1/2 birthday!

  3. That's great news! That's interesting b/c I tutored for sixth grade TAKs last year. ( I know odd.) I actually tutored a girl last summer who was from Texas and was visiting her rich doctor mom for the summer. I made her mom order me the TAKS Buckle Down series, and I tutored her 6 hours a week. I thought the math was pretty fun to teach! :)

  4. Happy belated half birthday!! Have an amazing weekend!

  5. That is awesome news! Congrats...and happy belated half b-day.
