Job at Smith Jr High

In July I was let go from City Accommodations Network, where Cameron also worked. August I had put a post on Facebook saying I needed a job, and my friend Heather Villagomez said she knew a lady she worked with who needed an assistant at Smith Jr High. I interviewed with Cyndi Galvan, and started working with her in September, the week after my niece Brynlee was born.
I have been working here for about 9 weeks and I love it! It is a special needs class and the kids in the class are so much fun to work with. You have good days and bad days but you get through em.
Working there had taught me so much patience!
But those kids have taught me how to love a child. Some of those kids are unaware of their condition, and it's incredible to see the love and happiness they have for everyone around them. I've learned to look on the inside of a person and see who they really are. 
I love working with these kids!
One of the girls is partially deaf, so myself and the two other teachers I work with, have started to learn sign language and I am so excited! I've always loved sign language and I've always wanted to learn it. Now I get to use it everyday. I only know a few words but it's a start. I can ask her if she needs help, thank you, you're welcome, water, yes, no, please, more and bathroom haha those are the most important right now.

So I recently started doing Zumba which is a fitness class that I go to 3 times a week at Elite Fitness where my mom teaches. We have a blast doing a mix of salsa, merengue, regeaton, cumbia, and many other types of dance. We have a little zumba family and we have a party in every class! I loved it so much that I decided to get my instructor license so I can teach while Cameron and I are in South Carolina. Here are some pics of our class!
