I spent the other day with my middle daughter who got the English teaching job in a small town. She and I drove up to see her classroom and meet the people she will be working with. They are all so wonderful. The school has teacher housing, so my daughter will be living in a two bedroom apartment with her husband and daughter, for $200 a month.....can't beat that!! My daughter said at that rate they will be able to set aside money to buy a house in the near future.
My granddaugther will be starting kindergarten and will get out a bit before my daughter finishes teaching. The principal told my daughter that my granddaughter can come to her classroom and stay with her until she is done teaching.......there's something to be said for small towns........they don't have all the rules of the larger towns!!
They are all excited to get moved and start school and I am excited for them. My daughter is beginning her career and doing exactly what she set out to do. She wanted to be a teacher in a small town just like where she grew up. I thank all of the great teachers in her life who were such a good influence on her.
