Over the moon!!!

No Internet, no mojo but I have a job!  I just found out this afternoon that I got a continuing position at the school I have worked at for the past couple of years.  This is my first continuing position since beginning my teaching many (too many) years ago.  I chose in the early years to not have one and only do substitute teaching as I wanted to be mostly at home with my kids.  I have been trying for 7 years to get a continuing position, had to 'earn' my way up.  Even better it is at my neighborhood school so I am close to home - a five minute walk - and close by for my kids - who next year will be in grade 7 and 10.  I am so excited to have this!
