One Full School Year of Online Teaching through Outschool

Last February, I begin teaching online on a whim. I wasn't sure what to expect since I had never taught online, and the last time I put myself in a classroom situation, it wasn't the greatest experience. Honestly, my last public teaching experience made me feel like I would never teach again, and after years of teaching at a local co-op and coming to the conclusion it wasn't my most favorite way to teach either mostly because of class size, I began to wonder if teaching would indeed be a part of my life outside of homeschooling.  Now one year later with Outschool, I can happily say that teaching is definitely a part of my life, and I enjoy it. 

Simply Grateful

As I was sitting and thinking about the year, I figured I should write about it because who knows when I will need to look back and remember just how faithful the Father is to us.  I don't know about you, but every now and then I must remind myself of the daily miracles in my life. With all the distractions, it is REALLY easy to take those simple daily miracles and blessings for granted.

There's Power in Writing

My friend often reminds me that I encouraged her to begin journaling. She shares with me often the power of writing down her thoughts, fears, and dreams. When I made the suggestion to her, I really didn't know the impact it would have in her life.
