This post should start with "Once upon a time..." and end with "They lived happily ever after" but it isn't a fairytale, it is my life, so I'll tell it how it is.
This year will be different. Both my kids will be in school full time this year. I officially graduated last December and participated in commencement ceremonies in May. I have been looking for a job but in this economy and with teachers being laid off in almost every district where I live there are not jobs to choose from.
And then there was another job posting to apply to. I was asked for an interview. I wanted to have high hopes, but it would be my fourth interview since graduating the other three did not go anywhere. Less than 24 hours later I was offered a JOB! Change is definitely in the air! I'm headed back to work on September 1.
Let's not get too crazy though. I've been home for eight years so I think that working a part-time (.4 in the education world) job is going to be perfect. I'll be getting my foot in the door in a public school!! I'll be teaching general chemistry!! I'll be home to get my kids off the bus in the afternoon!! Like I said, I could practically end this with ...and they lived happily ever after.
1 thing: I am posting this because I have been getting all the paperwork for starting school and will go to orientation this Friday. BUT, I won't be "official" until the School Board approves me toward the end of Sept when they next meet.
