Bailee wanted her picture taken 

 If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you know that I graduated with a BA in Elementary Education 2 years ago. After college and student teaching, I moved back home as I loved my hometown, am a total family girl and had a dream of teaching at the my old elementary school. Little did I know how difficult it would be to get a job in my town, and spent the past two years subbing and doing a few long-term jobs. I applied for a few jobs here and there, but had my heart set on working at my elementary school. 

When a job opened at my old school, I immediately applied and waited on pins and needles for an interview. Almost a month after applying, I got the call with an offer to interview! It was the most exciting yet terrifying experiences, as 5 people from the school drilled me with questions. Guys, I left the interview feeling absolutely defeated. I stumbled over my words, repeated myself and didn’t think there was any way they would call me with good news.

Over a week later, I got the call. I GOT THE JOB! I am so excited to share with you that I will have my own classroom next year and be teaching 1st grade! I am sure I will have plenty of stories to share with you and plenty of ‘teacher’ outfits! 

I have two distinct styles. Teacher and NON-teacher. I think you will have a pretty easy time telling what I wore to school VS what I wore on the weekend! For example, these pictures were taken after a day of subbing. I definitely love wearing dresses in the classroom and love mixing prints! 

Anyways, I’m over the moon about my new adventure and am so excited (and a little nervous) about having my own group of kiddos next year! Can’t wait to share with you!!

    Congratulations on the teaching job! What a dream come true! I just graduated from teacher's college and have been subbing just as you were so I understand the process. Good luck with grade 1 – they are so sweet at that age. Can't wait to see some teacher style inspiration this fall 🙂
