To work or not to work

That IS the question. I frequent the job openings over at our school district's web page. The majority of the time there is nothing that I am qualified to do so that is that. I recently gathered all of my stuff together and decided I would start substitute teaching. Hey, that's a great way to ease my way back in to work right? Work when I want, don't work if I don't want to. Well, before I've even gotten a chance to sub I noticed today two jobs available. I decided to put my application in not thinking anything would come of it. I mean, I haven't taught school in 10 years. I do not hold a current teaching certificate. I'm not a real candidate. Safe.

Flash forward 35 minutes after I pressed submit and I got a phone call. Now I have an interview tomorrow at 1:30. What was I thinking? Am I ready to go back to work? How will we all get out the door in the morning and what will the after school routine be? Of course I'm putting the cart before the horse. Perhaps I should wait until I bomb the interview to put it all out of my mind and get back to my lazy lifestyle.

I'll keep you updated on my self induced stress.

Good luck...I think! The great thing is that you would have the days off during the kids break! I absolutely hate that I have to work when my kids are out on break. They hate it too. I'm sure you will not bomb the interview. I can't wait to talk to you tomorrow and see what job it is for.

Good luck?

You'll have to keep us posted. It's something I think about often, but then wonder how it's possible to do both? Especially when you've done it before and know the extra hours that are done at home. But, if anyone can do it... it's certainly you. I know I'm late on wishing you good luck at the interview, but good luck on figuring it all out!

I will know by Monday. Either way it was a good way to get my face out there and to interview- since it has been a while since I've done that. Jackson's just relieved that if I DO get it it isn't his teacher that is leaving.

Good luck with that!


Whichever you prefer.

Teaching has it's benefits

So does NOT teaching..

So good luck either way.
