Something to make up for a disappointing weekend

Last night after dance, my instructor asked if I could stay after class to chat so she could talk to me about something. Immediately I started guessing what it could be, but I had no idea. I waited around for about 20 minutes and then decided to go home. She called me a little bit after and she started asking me if I would want to teach!!!
Connie's starting an after school program with the Challenger Schools here in Utah and needs company students to teach! This is like my dream come true. I have been worrying about what to do next Fall for a job because I'm graduating in April, and this is the perfect solution. It won't be full time, but the pay is actually quite good! Not that I even care about the pay, teaching dance is my dream. I love teaching, especially little kids. Also, I would still be dancing on the company and get experience teaching. Connie is going to give us training too to be better teachers. This will be an awesome experience so no matter where I go I can try to teach dance!
Any one want to take beginning ballet?

(I found your blog through one of the other sisters in the ward!)

That must feel so good to have a plan for fall. And I've totally been wanting to do beginning ballet! Are you going to teach that on campus?
