It's official....

As of now I am back in full-time employment after a 3 year break!

My 10-month contract starts with one of the local schools today and although I have been working for them since June sporadically, I am now officially 'on the clock' as us Brit's say.

Working p/time in June/July without kids or teaching staff around, has really helped me acclimatise and learn alot of what I need to know - like where everything is we might need. I also have all the big events on my school calendar and know when I need to start preparations for them.

I am really looking forward to the teachers returning next week, as I took this job partly for the camaradarie and team aspect. The last two months have seemed very quiet at times with just a few staff popping in and out. That will all change at the end of next week though, when my office will once again become the main hub for the school. I cannot wait :-)

No more late nights for me, from now on it's up with the lark and the hubster at 6am!

I'm so happy for you, Sarah. I always loved the family feel of my school. I miss that now. You will be the center of the hub of activity. What fun!

I'll bet you're going to just love it, Sarah, and they will enjoy having YOU there! Keep us posted...OH, I don't need to tell you to do that, do I?

Congratulations, Sarah. You will be a tremendous asset at your school. I am looking forward to hearing all about it in the months to come.

Yea! I am sure you will be adjusting to the new wake up/bedtime schedule ... working is in so many ways fulfilling ... think of all the handbags (and shoes) you can buy!

Thank you everyone and oh boy did I have a busy day. In fact I have bought some work home with me so that I am ahead of the game Monday, as we have pre-enrollment on Tuesday.

I hope it went well! Like others, can't wait to hear all about it! Maybe you will get some more marriage proposals from the little boys!
