This blog was created with the intent of keeping you in touch with our family. I am a secondary school teacher and an adjunct history instructor. The last 25 plus years of my life have been shared with my husband Randal. He works for an Electric Coop. We have one daughter, who graduated from Tech this year. We are amazed daily at how God works in our lives.

Me a Coach???

Me a Coach???

Last week I had a couple of interviews and one was for a social studies job at a tiny school. The position was for a Social Studies/Head Football Coach. Before going to the interview, I commented to my husband, “Surely they looked at my resume and know that I don’t coach.” He replied, “Hey, I think you could pull it off. It is six-man football. All you have to do is tell them boys that when they get the ball, they need to run, and run, and run until they either make a touchdown or get tackled!” Sure enough the first words of the interview started with, “Sooooo…..can you coach?” I took a big gulp and replied sheepishly, but proudly, “Well….uh, I ..I can coach Social Studies UIL.” . . .

So, now I am waiting it out to see if they can find another coach who teaches another subject, if so, then I possibly could find myself as a new employee of this little, but terrific gem of a school. For their sake, I hope not as a coach. Now what makes this story so funny is if you know me, then you know I am one of the most uncoordinated and un-athletic persons alive. In fact, I do not know a whole lot about sports in general. I am the person that once put the lettering “Tee-Off” instead of “Tip-Off” on a school basketball bulletin board. That was really embarrassing!!! Who would think a minor mix up of words could be so important! More so, who would think people could not let that minor mistake die, but they don’t! To me, it is like Tomato or Tomatoe/Potato or Potatoe. What’s the difference?

Hut, Hut, Hut!

Good luck with the job hunt!! I work at a tiny school, so I wouldn't be surprised if they made you a coach!! Last year after they got rid of all of our coaches, I was thinking that I may be coaching basketball this year!!! I knew I really wasn't going to but in a small school, you have to do EVERYTHING!! It's fun though. I think you would enjoy a little school.

Small schools are awesome, but you do have to wear many hats! My superintendent asked me one year if I would get my CDL and drive a bus; I laughed; he didn't!!! Good lucK!
