Change and Adjustment

As most of you probably know, I have moved back to Utah, as of a week ago. When the job opening for a first grade teaching position at McKinley Elementary became available, I did some serious praying and pondering to decide if I should stay in Colorado, or go back and teach. I loved my job in Colorado, I loved all the new friends I had made, I loved all that Colorado had to offer and things for me to do and see there that aren't available in Utah. But I also loved my family in Utah, I love teaching and missed it dearly. I finally came to the conclusion that I needed to move back to Utah and teach first grade. What an adjustment! I am currently living with my parents in Tremonton to pay off debt and save up some serious dough. It will be a different experience, I will miss having roommates, I already miss so much in Colorado-the clouds, sunsets, my coworkers, my roommates, my friends. But I have peace in my heart that I have made the right choice. I am excited for the new challenge that first grade will offer me, and look forward to the next four weeks of getting my classroom and mind ready to teach. Teaching truly is where my heart lies, and I know that it is the career for me. I know that I can have positive and uplifting experiences regardless of where I am living. I have come to learn that change is such a good thing, despite its challenges. I look forward to the changes that await me with this new adventure that I'm taking on!
