off to teach for america…

i’ve been invited to be a part of the 2009 teach for america corps and i’m going to accept.  this summer i will move to memphis and teach secondary english for two years.  sometimes i’m excited, others i’m scared out of my mind.  i have no idea how to move to a city where i know about 2 people and build a life and community while doing what everyone tells me will be the hardest thing i have ever done, and probably ever will do.  good thing i know Jesus…

“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.
Your steadfast love, o Lord, endures forever;
do not forsake the work of Your hands.”
-Psalm 138:8

  1. are you going to go on the spring break trip? it would give you a good chance to get a feel for the city that you are about to be placed in.

    I’m jealous of Memphis!

    You’ll do a wonderful job and your students will be way better for having you as a teacher!

    In agreement with Dad….
    Oh, and most of Denton (all that know you) support and love you.
    And Jesus loves you more.

  4. I am a senior at my university and am thinking about applying to the next upcoming year. i was curious about how rigorous the application process was, and how you like the program thus far? good luck!
