To all my friends and family- I hope this letter finds you well!
As some of you may have noticed, recently I have taken a step back from posting and writing content. I have used this time to reflect on the direction of my professional path. I also used this time to dedicate more intentional efforts toward my husband and our marriage. All is well, and I am happy to be writing you once more.
I would like to let you in on what new direction I have decided to move toward and what that means for the NannyBeth blog and more.
As many do, I found myself at a crossroads this past spring. I absolutely love what I do (and don’t plan on giving it up any time soon) however, there is a big reason why I had to begin thinking about changes.
My husband and I would like to start a family. I understand that many women choose to continue nannying even after they have had their children, but for me, I would like to stay home with them at least for the first year. The same amount of intentional time and efforts that I give to each of my little charges, I intend on giving that and more to my own. We are not there yet, but within the next couple of years we would like to grow our family. Exciting! This reality pushes me to think about stability and future professional plans.
Because of this, and the desire to further my credentials within Early Childhood Education, I have decided to go back to school. I have begun classes already and find myself enjoying the change! I am taking master level courses within Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. At the end of this accelerated program, I will be equipped to enter into the New Hampshire public school system as a lead teacher. As I expect of my little ones, I intend to keep learning, growing and pushing myself.
I am not done reaching and teaching as ‘NannyBeth’ by any means. I still have a strong passion for encouraging and equipping nannies and parents to train up their children in the way they should go! The capacity at which I will be writing and posting though, may change. I am now committed to clinicals within the school system, course work from multiple classes per term, as well as working the day job. This means that I will just have less time to dedicate right now.
I still intend on sharing and connecting with you, ladies! So, please, stick around! Thank you for your support and patience as I make these life changes.
Now, your turn…
Are there some changes that you are going through as well? Perhaps, you just started working for another family. Perhaps you are thinking of taking your nannying skills in another direction. Do you have a degree and have decided to pursue a different career path? Are you a mama and just found out your family will be growing very shortly here?
I would love to hear from you! Let me know what is going on in your world by commenting with your ‘New Direction’ down below and let’s connect!
