Hello! I am very sincerely sorry about my disappearance for the past month or so... I do have a semi- valid reason for it but I definitely do not want it to be an excuse! Basically I all of the sudden got extremely busy. I was in Whitehorse for a week in August and had applied for a teaching position right before I left. I returned from Whitehorse on Monday to a message from the principal to call her to set up an interview the next morning. I did not get the job I applied for but instead another position came up and I got that one on Friday. I spent that weekend with my friends in Drumheller and then bam! Time to go back to school to set up and prepare for a new school year- and then it began. I am a first year teacher in a 4/5 combined class so for the past few weeks I have been a little bit overwhelmed with things and my blog/ twitter/ youtube everything kind of lost priority. Long (very long) story short I am going to do my very best to be more involved online.
Now on to August in Review!
I started off the month with a trip to Heritage Days with the girls from Colour Your World. It is a really cool camp that is for girls all around the province for a week to learn about other cultures. Heritage Days in my city is a huge deal- hundreds of thousands of people go over three days! I snapped a couple of pictures while I was there to share with you!
The main thing that happened to me in August was my trip to Whitehorse! It was definitely a highlight of my year and so much fun! I did a blog post of each day in Whitehorse already, you can click on the pictures to get to each day.
Pretty much right after my return from Whitehorse I went to Drumheller with my friends to camp and see the sights. I have been to Drumheller so many times because my aunt and uncle used to live there, but it was fun to go back and hang out with friends!
My summer finished off with a job interview and a classroom! I am an elementary school teacher and now I have my own class! It is a 4/5 combined class and so far I love it! I have great kids and my dream of being a teacher came true!
