Quiet lately

I know things have been pretty quiet around my blog lately.  Sorry.  this is just a quick little update to let everyone know what I have been up to.

School has started.  Just the Friday before the new school year started I received a letter in the mail saying I have been transferred to a new school.  I went from being a teacher's aide in a CARES preschool to being an aide in a High School CARES class.  I was so excited to get this news but surprised at how last minute the letter came.

I have been working in this classroom for a month now and I am loving it!!!  It is so nice to have a real conversation with my students.  I can play a game of chess with them, one boy is teaching me how to play.  He is actually very good at it.

I have been given my own class to teach crafts to.  I have 5 Freshman and we have made a bunch of earrings so far.  Today we started Halloween treats.  We are going to try to sell what we make in the school store. 

I am so happy with my new job.  Thank you to whomever it was looking out for me.

I decided to leave Michaels and thought I would miss it, but have decided this was a very good decision.  I do not miss it all all.  I have been teaching scrapping classes too long to deal with the hassles of teaching someone else's classes.  I am looking forward to the freedom of putting my own class schedule together.

I plan to start offering classes in my workshop this winter.  Maybe even sooner.  I have to get my room back in spice and span condition again before I even think of letting anyone see what this room looks like.

I signed up with Stampin' Up! and have received my starter kit.  I just have not had a chance to play with any of my new "toys" yet.

Anyone that would like to see what Stampin' Up! had to offer, I do have a website.  It is sharonscraps.stampinup.net  There is a link to go shopping from that site, as well.

I have been busy planning crafts to do with my class so when I get home i have not been on the computer much.  So this is why I have been so quiet lately.

I will start posting on a more regular basis once I start putting together some class samples.

Thanks for sticking around.
