Dreams Coming True?

On my side bar, I have a picture of Beth and a short description. The last sentence says, 'her dream job is to be a preschool teacher.'

At all of Beth's vocational planning meetings, they ask her what she would like to do if she could do anything in the world. Her answer is always, 'be a teacher'. 

Tomorrow she begins a volunteer position at a local elementary school. For now she will be a playground attendant, hanging out with the kids and playing games with them. Her job coach said the volunteer coordinator at the school was very excited about getting Beth in a classroom as an assistant. We're hoping it becomes a paid position but with the economy the way it is and how hard it is for schools to get additional funding, we have to leave that in the Lord's hands.

But, her dreams are coming true!
