My Truth Monday - Becoming a Teacher

I'm joining up with Sunny Days in Second Grade for her My Truth Monday series.  

Today's post is all about how I became a teacher.

Although this job is more demanding than I expected, I have to say I do feel like this is the right job for me.  When I left the Marine Corps, I was lost for a little bit.  Being a Marine isn't just about doing a job.  It's a way of life and there's so much tradition and camaraderie that goes into being a Marine.  Through teaching and blogging, I was able to find others that were just as passionate and invested into something.

How did you end up teaching?


  1. How on earth can you have triplets and a teaching job! Bless you! I am now feeling guilty cause I'm on the couch blogging on a sick day when you probably have four loads of clothes to wash. Bless you again. Thanks for sharing your story!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  2. Wow! You have triplets!? That's amazing! I bet you are one busy gal. :-) I agree that teaching is hard and time consuming, but so worth it! I feel very blessed to be a special education teacher! I snagged the fluency task cards you made. I can't wait to use them!

    Teaching with TLC,
    A Tender Teacher for Special Needs

  3. Its a good profession for most of the people to make our career as teacher.
