A New Beginning

I'm sharing some exciting news and new changes coming to my business here at Laugh Eat Learn

I’ve been keeping a secret for a while now.

I’ve known that today was going to be a bittersweet day for months. I’ve slowly been preparing for it week after week, picking up and packing up here and there. I was finally brave enough to tell my students just last week.

This morning I finally finished and stared at the madness. I actually started my blog around the same time I got the keys to my very own classroom and captured my excitement in my first post ever.

Not only is it the last day of school, ending my 4th year teaching, but it is also my last day at the school I begun my teaching career at. It’s been an amazing 4 years learning and growing and I’ve worked with some amazing people over the years that I will miss very much.  I will miss being apart of the community but with my recent move to Seattle, my blog and designing business blooming, and a new passion coming to form from grad school, I decided it was time for a change.

I’ve accepted a new position at a middle school teaching ELL students part time. The other part of my week will finally be dedicated to my blog, web/graphic design, and creating resources for teachers to be sold on Teachers Pay Teachers. I’ve been working overtime the past 6 months creating in my afternoons and weekends to keep up with the amazing demand I’ve been blessed with. I’m so thankful to be able to find a position that still holds onto my teacher strings but also gives me the flexibility for my creative side to strive and grow.

    Wow, what an amazing opportunity! How exciting it must be for you to be able to harness in a bit all of your creative talents and make them work for you instead of YOU working for them!! Go girl.. be the success you were destined to BE!
