The unknown....

I don't like the unknown at all. I have been through a lot of it in the last few months. Yes, everything has turned out ok , somewhat.

Substitute teaching is such a big unknown. Some schools I know, some I don't. I have to remember that two months ago the only school I knew was my old Alma Mater. I have kept my list of schools to the three that are close and that I know, well know now. Tomorrow I head out to another high school across town. I think I may have been there twice way back in the day when I played basketball against them.

Please pray for me as I go to an unfamiliar school where I must find out the following: Where is the teacher's lounge? Where are the teacher restrooms? Where is my room? oh and so many more things I have to find out at every unfamiliar school.
The positive , after tomorrow it is not an unfamiliar school anymore. Must stay positive. It is hard when so much lately I have had to leave my comfort zone in order to somewhat survive in today's economy.
God knows and he is in control.

Hey Becky! Well, you probably won't get this until after your first "new" day, so I hope (and pray) that it was smoothe.

Yeah, like you, I don't like chartering unknown waters. I like my box and would stay here forever, most likely. But I suppose our biggest growth spurts are during these challenging times.

I have no doubt that you can do this and do it WELL.

Hang in there! Like you said (and it's so true) God IS in control! Always.
