This is the first post I've done in a couple of years. The honest truth is that for a long time it didn't feel like anything in my life was happening. But God's been faithful and been providing for me. I've had great opportunities to get involved with things in my home church since I moved back up to the San Francisco Bay area a couple of years ago. I started working as a substitute teacher at The King's Academy and Fremont Christian High School, and have had many opportunities to build connections with the faculty, staff, and students at both schools. So as great as that has been, something new has come up. On to the big announcement.
I finally got a job as a Bible teacher!
Now, before you get *too* excited, it's really only part time. It's at a small school called Live Oak Academy, which is an outgrowth of a home-schooling co-op. (http://www.liveoakacademy.org/) I'll be teaching a Biblical Exegesis class for freshman, twice a week. Even though it's not a full-fledged position, this is exactly the kind of thing I've been wanting to teach. I'm still going through new teacher training right now, and getting the lesson plans and curriculum together. What's also great about this is I can keep subbing at King's and Fremont during the times I'm not teaching at Live Oak. I'm super excited for this to start and to see what God does with this unique opportunity.
I may start using this blog as part of my class to engage in discussion with students or post topics that arise which I can't directly address in class. Should be interesting. Again, I'm so excited that God has opened this door and provided this awesome opportunity!
