Day 9 of 30 Day Challenge

Day 9- What defines you?

I am defined by many things. I am defined by the people who love me. I am defined by the job I do. I am defined by the words that come out of mouth. I am defined by my actions and reactions. I am defined by the things I allow to be a part of my life. I am defined by the choices I make. I am defined by my love for God. I am defined by His unfailing love for me.

Day 8 of 30 Day Challenge

Day 8- What are three passions you have?

Passion is defined as: a strong and barely controllable emotion (according to google)

I tend to be pretty passionate about anything I take the time to do. If I'm not going to do it well, I honestly don't bother doing it at all. But, my top three passions are (in no ranking order other than being the top three):

1. MilShelb. Yes. I'm pathetic. Milly and Shelby are my passion and my obsession. I love my girls. I really just can't explain it.

2. Animal welfare. In my dream world all pets would have homes and none would suffer and none would be abandoned, neglected, alone, or afraid. I am passionate about animals. They give us so much and in return, people dump them, abuse them, starve them... and worse. It is horrible. There are so many things wrong with this. I cannot sit here and write a blog to truly express my passion on this subject because it would take me hours.

3. Public Education. I am a third grade teacher in a public school. I love my job. I love my kids. I love my fellow teachers and my administrators. My dream is for all children in the US to have the opportunity to attend school in a place that is safe, warm, updated.... full of books, computers, and caring teachers. Many students in the US do not have the opportunities that my students have. I know because I've taught in one of those schools. Those children deserve an excellent education just as all children do.

Day 7

Well, I told you I stink at keeping up with these things. 

Today I'm writing Day 7: what is your dream job and why?

I am truly blessed because I am one of the lucky few who actually gets to work her dream job. I teach third grade. I love my job with all my heart. There are great days and there are tough days, but the good far outweighs the bad.

So, why is this my dream job?

1. There's never a dull moment with children. 
2. That look on a kid's face when they finally get something.
3. The hugs at the end of the day... Or just because.
4. (And most important) Because what I do makes a difference every single day. It needs to because I'm trading a day of my life for it.
