Job Update

I just realized that I never let y'all know what happened with my job interview last week. Well, to begin with, I did the best I could, answered all the questions truthfully & with as much confidence as I could. That's kinda hard to do when you're being interviewed by 4 people. When I left the school, I had a feeling that things didn't go my way & I found out a couple of days later that I didn't get the job. Oh well, it was good practice for the next go round! I do however have 3 1/2 days scheduled to substitute over the next couple of weeks. Not to mention any days that they just call me in. I'm still looking around for a more secure job though.

crewsk, that is a very good attitude. I know the right position will be yours before long and we all need practice at different things. Hoping for the best.

Thanks licia! I know it will take me a little time to get into the swing of things again, that was my first interview in 11 years. Just gotta keep my chin up!

A man in my water class told me the other day I should try substitute teaching. He said I had the personality for it. I started thinking about it and as much as I would like to have a bit more regimen to my life, I would hate to go thru all the process. I haven't worked since 1989 and the company I worked for isn't even in business now, so I don't think I would get far with no working reference. I do sometimes have a little too much time on my hands but I try to do volunteer work when I do. I suppose I will just amble along like I've been doing. It would be nice to feel useful again sometimes.

Thanks kadesma!

To start subbing here all you have to do is take a one day training class. No interview or experience is required. I hadn't worked since 2000 when I decided to start subbing. I really like the flexibility.

You have a great outlook on the job situation, crewsk! Things like that happen for a reason so I'm sure that the truly right job is still out there waiting for you. I'm glad you have the subbing as back up until then!

How are the kids liking school?
