And now, what you've all been waiting for.....
Today I am happy to announce that I officially have a job secured! I signed my contract this morning, so I feel comfortable sharing my great news with everyone. I appreciate all your thoughts and prayers for me during this process. The job I'm taking is at Oak Hill Academy. It's a private, non-profit school for children who are at-risk or have been diagnosed with learning differences. I will be the core teacher and SLP for all the preschoolers. I really feel that I'm just walking into the plans that God has for me and I've really felt him closing and opening doors for me in the job searching process. I am so thankful for how He has blessed me with this job and for making it so clear to me that this is where I need to be!
Yesterday was a big day for me as well. I had my "graduation check-out" meeting with all the Communication Disorder graduates and my program director. She helped us go through all of our licensure forms to make sure we fill them out correctly and then signed off on all our forms and files to say that we are ready to be official Speech Language Pathologists! Very exciting and surreal! Afterwards, my group of girlfriends and I went out for lunch at the Twisted Root in Deep Ellum. It was so fun to hang out together and try a new place. These are the girls that I began this adventure with and the ones with which I'm ending. I LOVE these girls and will miss them as we part ways, however I'm hoping that we can all stay in touch and have reunions at the annual TSHA conventions!
