I'm not totally new to the website or forums, but I've been on a bit of a hiatus! I dropped off the forum about a year ago, because a lot of stuff happened really fast! I was student teaching, my boyfriend (at the time) and I got engaged (so now he's the fiancé!), AND I was planning a trip to Europe and looking for a job! Ah! Hi, old friends
Well, we're getting married in less than two months (July 14th), I have secured tenure track employment for next year at a fantastic school, and things are starting to slow down a bit. I've missed everyone here and hope this message finds you well. Sookiegirl is the same goofy puppy (picture included, with that sassy face), and though I've been campaigning to have her as part of the wedding party, my parents are still holding out against it. There's still time, though.
I actually messaged Kian just a few days ago (hi again, Kian!) because I'm thinking about training as a summer and after school job. Some teachers tutor, but I figure if I can teach + have lots of puppies around it might be an ideal situation for me. Kian had wonderful advice to offer, but if there's anyone else out there with words of wisdom I'd love to hear them.
I'll be popping into the other boards as well, but wanted to make my re-entry official over here
And now, for SookDog:
