Is it appropriate to scream from the rooftops how excited I am? I still remember submitting my application to Fund For Teachers (FFT) and then forcing myself to forget about it. I was rejected in years past. Why would they pick me this year?
So,I received a letter in April. Let me be more specific, I received a VERY thin letter in April. You know what they say about “thin letters,” right? Thin = no. Dreading the news, I ripped that thin envelope open. I got myself ready for a”Thank you for applying, but the pool of applications were extremely qualified” statement. BUT. I. Was. Wrong. The thin letter started with Congratulations! I had to reread it several times. I WAS CHOSEN!!
Not only was I chosen, I was chosen to go study CHEETAHS IN AFRICA! What?? How is this even possible? I am going to travel to Namibia, buckle down with the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) and spend a lovely two weeks learning about cheetah conservation! Just wait till I bring this experienced back into the classroom! I cannot wait to get my hands dirty. Thank you Fund for Teachers!!
