So, this school year began and I continued to look for a job in the teaching field and branched out to just find a job. Any job. Well, not any job - but a decent job. I have a friend who runs the Christmas shop in the local mall. So, I talked with her and BAM - got a job. It didn't start right away but I'll take it. I loved working retail at Christmas when I was wrapping gifts. I didn't like it as much working at a craft store - too crazy. I was really excited about the plans.
Then I found out there was an opening at Cole's school.
Then I got an interview.
Then I found out there was a full time position and a tutoring position, too.
Then I was subbing and the principal found me in the hall.
I didn't get the full time position but I did get a tutoring position. Now I have more jobs than I need. Typical, right?
Well, at first it was just for a month, then we've been extended 6 more weeks. There are two of us tutoring for now. I found out yesterday that they want me to stay on through the ARMT testing, which I believe is in March.
I'm a wee bit excited. A million things went through my head instantly. First, I need more clothes. Second, I need more goodies in my treat basket. And third, OH MY GOSH I'M ALMOST A TEACHER!!! It's a big deal to be in the school every day, helping the kids, earning a paycheck - a consistent schedule.
So, now I won't be working like crazy at the Christmas shop, but I'll still work a little - it'll be too much fun not to! And hopefully my wardrobe will increase a bit soon and I'll get out some things from storage that I can use in my room. I don't really have my own classroom, but I'll be sharing with another teacher. I'm hoping she'll be okay with me putting some stuff up - it's just a little plain to me. I can't wait!!!!
I'm also going to paint a cute little pencil on burlap and put my name, that I can hang in the room - in my corner!!
Off to plan some math lessons!!
