Hello to the blogging world

So I've decided to start a blog. I'm not sure how it will turn out but I thought I would give it a go anyway.
Today was a pretty good day. I spent the day substituting for the broadcasting teacher at Rogers High School. It was the seniors last day, so you can imagine how much work they got done. It was actually fun. We spent most of the class playing games.
I started substituting in January when I left my job as an Environmental Health Specialist with the Department of Health. I decided a while back that I did not want to be a health inspector for the rest of my life. Conducting restaurant inspections is not a job you want to have if you enjoy going out for dinner. While working as an inspector was a good experience, it just simply wasn't for me. The part of my job that I did enjoy was the teaching aspect so I decided I would pursue a career in teaching. I have a degree in biology and am applying to the non-traditional license program. I'm am currently waiting for my Praxis II scores to come in, which won't be for another two weeks. Substituting is definitely interesting and quite challenging. It's been a good experience for me however. We'll see how it helps me in the future. Only two more weeks before my future will be decided.
