Today was the first day of the reading and writing camp at Jubilee Academy. There were nine students, ages 9-16, participating. It was exciting to teach for the first time in my new classroom. Getting to work with students there confirmed for me that it will be a fabulous place for the cottage school to meet, and that I set up the room in a way that works well for me.
After spending countless hours this summer preparing the room, articulating philosophy, making business-related decisions, and speaking to parents, it was refreshing to actually teach there. I love teaching, which is one of the main reasons I decided to begin the cottage school.
Spending the time with students at the camp was another piece of confirmation for me that I am doing the right thing by starting Jubilee Academy. I look forward to seeing how God works through this ministry.
