A Season of Change

(Katherine and I enjoy the Advent season in our Endicott apartment. We got a Christmas tree to celebrate.)

Today I handed in the last paper for my Master of Arts in Teaching degree. I have three more days of student teaching left. I am planning on moving home on December 20th. I was recently asked by a teacher whom I respect tremendously to apply for a chemistry teaching position that just opened up in this Binghamton area. It was a wonderful job but at this point I have really decided that it is a priority to move home. (Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home. -Prov. 27:8) I plan to substitute and work on curriculum development during the coming semester. I am definitely anticipating spending more time with family. Student teaching has been very hard in many ways. I am grateful for the prospect of rest.
