We try to stay positive and upbeat. We take risks and put ourselves out there, so we expect challenges and some negative feedback occasionally. We are not tough as nails, but we are mature enough to know everyone has an opinion and sometimes things don’t work out as planned.

We have preached to our students to be persistent and to keep moving forward in tough times. We now find ourselves trying to follow our own advice. We are saddened to learn that things are not working out as well as we had hoped with our publisher. We are now in the middle of trying to get our books finished and are actively looking for a new publisher for our new books.

We still have our first ten books in the series for sale, just contact us at twoteachersontheedge@gmail.com if interested.

Some Happy News

I have not felt compelled to write. I am not sure why. But today I got some good news about my former students who will be attending high school next year that I just had to write about.

See, every February I would spend the entire month trying to help my 8th grade students fix their applications, practice for interviews, pick out appropriate clothing, google directions, and edit essays. We would find out together who was accepted to the local Catholic high schools and who was turned down. We would then put the backup plan in place once we got the news we didn’t want to hear. February was full of emotions, sometimes happy, sometimes disappointing, and always nerve-wracking.

Well, today I heard almost every single student in my former class was accepted! I celebrate them and all of their hard work! I am not there with them, and it makes me sad. I would love to run up to them and jump up and down with them. I am so proud of them. I hope they know how truly proud I am of them and how much I love them.

Today, was a good day, it was a success. Thank you Lord.
