And the Winner Is....

A week ago we happily announced a post about Jessica's hunt for a job. There was another interview since that posting (are you guys doing the math? that makes 10. anyone want/need a job?), but decided that although the school (and people who work there) are amazing she was being pulled in a different direction professionally. The original debate was over whether or not she wanted to teaching in a departmentalized or self contained classroom. For those of you who don't know teaching lingo departmentalized is when you teach only a subject or two (usually math/science or language arts/social studies) and have two "sets" of students, while self contained is what most of us remember during elementary school (one classroom, one teacher).

After some thought and (a lot of) conversations with family and friends Jess finally made a decision:

The school is fairly new (only 3 years old), has a great reputation already, and has everything an eager teacher could want (think technology, supplies galore, nice clean campus). Starting this fall she will officially be joining the 5th grade team. Finding a job has been a lot of work, both mentally and physically. We definitely got our celebration on this weekend (details to be posted soon) and will be even happier when all of the paperwork is completed. It is so nice to be able to have this settled and Jessica can do what she does best- plan, organize, and create. Hmmm.....Can you hear the wheels already spinning???
