A Letter Came in the Mail Today

"Dear Melinda Peterson,

We are happy to confirm your recommendation for our Occasional Teaching List.

You have been scheduled for an orientation session on Wednesday, June 11th"

Translation: I get to start my teaching career in September.

After months of ups and downs, this letter made me realize that not only am I going to FINALLY get to start teaching, but that everything leading up to now has absolutely been worth it.

    Hey, congratulations! It's a great feeling, isn't it? Try to hold on to that feeling for as long as you can :-)

    You may be starting your "career", but you've already had some magnificent experiences in the field. Don't belittle what you've already accomplished!

    That's a great point Sully - one that I'll try very hard to remember. Sometimes it's easy to focus on the hard times without remembering how much stronger they make us...
