Thanks for sticking it out with me this past month. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten many posts in that are on a personal level and have just been posting the assignments for class. The last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic with me winding down one chapter of my life to start another. With that being said with my current class (the one I started this blog for) coming to an end I wanted to make sure you all knew that after my class assignment blog post this week I’m going to continue with this book blogging venture and I wanted to share some things with you…
GOOD NEWS! (Play Wicked’s Original Cast Good News here)
After nearly a decade working for the YMCA, I have now closed that chapter and starting a new chapter with Barnes & Noble as the new full-time Children’s Lead (one of the two)! I’m so excited to be getting this opportunity to be surrounded by my passion on a daily and be surrounded by so many similar minded people. If I’m honest I wish I would have started this job a year ago when I first moved to Tennessee; I would have had a much better feeling. The people I am lucky enough to work with at Barnes & Noble have been so helpful, caring, open, friendly, compassionate… I can go on with adjective but long story short is their great people. And I mean great like when I had to call out for an entire weekend because I had a bad episode with my anxiety and depression they didn’t just say “ok feel better soon” they asked what they could do to help, if there were anything they can do to help in case there’s a next time… good people. I’m so excited to be a part of this team, and I can’t wait to keep learning from them.
Now I know several people have been asking what about the kids? Am I going to miss them? Well, of course, I’m going to miss them, but fortunately for me, I was able to build some great relationships with their families over the past year at my last school and have exchanged contact information with them. Some of them have already been by to see me at the store, and I’ve made plans with others. I hope that someday soon I’ll be sharing some stories about them here and I hope you all enjoy them.
Well, I’ve got to update my bio and start thinking about what else I would like to add to my blog.
Thanks for reading!
