It is crazy to think, but I am about to receive my 10 year service pin for being an official employee of the Corona-Norco USD. When my kids were small, and babies were still coming, for 19 years I did things at home to add to the family income. I crafted and tole painted items to sell, I did daycare at my home for 9 years. Then when Skyler was in second grade and the last of my daycare kids moved away, I started substituting in the school district. The first year and a half, I subbed where ever they needed. I was a Health Clerk (glorified mommy) dispensing medications, cleaning boo-boo’s, amazing how good I was at that!! Then I tried my hand at classroom assisting…that was okay, but too much down time for me. Then I started doing Clerical subbing….my niche. I could interact with the kids, parents and staff, and keep busy. There are always things to do in a school office.
I came to Victress Bower as a long term sub. I actually almost turned the job down. But I came and fell in love with the students, staff, and the family atmosphere that is Bower. What an incredible place of love and dignity. I have shared a few things before, but this is a great “work family” to be surrounded by daily. Recently my sister-in-law asked me how I liked my job. Truth be told, I would much rather be at home taking care of things there, that has gone out of control this last 11 ½ years….BUT, since I do have to work right now, there is nowhere I would rather spend my days.
I really do know that the Lord has blessed me with this job. I am close to home, work my 8 hour days, go home to be a wife, mom, gramma, servant of the Lord. I am very grateful for the Lord’s guidance and blessings for this “working mom”.
