Congratulations to me!!!!

I am proud to announce that I have been chosen to receive the Osher Reentry Scholarship for the 2008/2009 school year - my student teaching year! I am really excited about this - especially because I have been stressing about money lately. I was told that I probably will not be able to work during student teaching - and that is just foreign to me! I have worked during my entire college career!

I am amazed at this blessing! I never thought that I would ever qualify for a scholarship!

It also reminds me how long the road has been to becoming a teacher. I left for Ricks College twelve years ago. My father really did not want me to go and I was not on speaking terms with my mom at the time. I did not even know where I was going. I just drove with a friend from Pennsylvania. I was supposed to catch a greyhound in Salt Lake City to get to Rexburg, which I missed. I ended up catching a later bus to Idaho Falls. I did not get there until about 1 A.M. and then I took a taxi to Rexburg. It kind of set the pattern for my college career - I just forged the way as I went - Independently, learning as I went along.
