I try not to take myself too seriously, and try to find as much humor in this life as possible - then share it.
At the beginning of this year, I found a job. After five years of maternity, I decided to join the world of the working again. I am now a substitute teacher, a job in which I have no experience or qualifications, but it works well with my daughter's schedule. The bonus is that I have had the best time at the school, working with the kids. I LOVE having a different subject each day, or even covering different teachers throughout the day. It has worked out well. Somehow I earned the respect of the kids and teachers both, and it is gratifying to have them request me as the teacher for the day!
As for my family, I have a wonderful husband who is bald, a deaf border collie, a 120 lb lap dog, and a Russian blue kitten. My pride and joy is my 5 year old daughter. She is smart and bright - and a complete handful. We love her wit and energy, even though it wears us out! I tell the students that "everything I've learned about working with teenagers, I've learned from my 5 year old." Sure, that's odd, but it's true! They haven't thrown me anything yet that I haven't been able to handle, all with a smile.
I joined Jigidi on 5 January 2013 and was last seen on 26 April 2018. I've solved 3927 puzzles (2 daily) and put together 276721 pieces (142.9 daily)
