A new journey begins…

Dear Followers,

It is with a joyful heart that I have accepted a role as the Director of Lower School where I am currently employed. Through 15 years as a classroom teacher I have grown personally, professionally and spiritually in ways I could never have imagined.

Since taking this position, in the interim starting last October, God has led my heart in ways that show me this new role is where I belong. While I will miss the classroom more than I can possibly imagine, I know that God has great plans for my future and the future of my school.

Knowing the commitment it will take to fully immerse myself in this role, I have decided that it is best to sign off from the blogging community. I want to thank the thousands of you who dowloaded the free resources I have hosted on this blog and encourage you all to continue sharing them. When I elected to offer all of my resources for free, I could never have imagined the wonderful amount of feedback and support I would receive.

That being said, this site will remain active until the domain registration expires. All of the resources I have uploaded will continue to be available until that time. During these trying times I hope it can bring some light into children’s lives both in schools and at home.

I have loved interacting with you all over the last several years, and I hope God blesses you with strength, patience, trust and guidance as we work our way through the current landscape.

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” – Jeremiah 29:11

Happy Teaching!
