Adventures in Preschool VII - God's Plans and Venting

Proverbs 16:9

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.

Okay, so nothing about venting in the Bible, but just bear with me for a minute.

So what is this? Two days in a row the Holy Spirit speaks to me about my life's direction (see myspace page abtou this post). He must be up to something. At least, after today, I hope He is. I had a great time with the kiddo's today. A few frustrating instances, but when you are around two through five-year-olds, it's to be expected. I think it was mostly the heat getting to me too.

Shortly after returning home from work, I received a phone call from J.O.B.S, Job Opportunity Based Services. My counselor from jobs called to tell me that my boss thinks I am doing an excellent job, yet there there were a few instances where I could have handled them much better than I did. I thought I handled them well myself, and one instance, I think the one he was talking about, I did NOT see the kid's bloody nose. In the classroom with the children I do a great job, but ut on the playground we have not just uor class but two s and three's. A KLOT of children to watch, andI think it gets a bit overwhelming for me. Especially when I see children doign things they are not supposed to and an adult is standing nearby not doing a freakin' thing. I end upo be ing the one racing across the playground to tell the child(ren) to stop.

So I received a call from mom and really, its not about the stuff on the playground, but that my co-workers were just not that supoortive of me being there. There are a lot of awesome things I do in the preschool, even my boss thinks so, but getting the others to see that...

So it's back to the job hunting again. It's a major bummer as I am going to miss all the children, especially a select fews that stole my heart.

Funny moment though, out on the playgroudn I had a prescholer come up to me and tell me"You know what, water makes your tongue sing!" LOL I love them!
