The job search saga continues....although this week has been pretty productive.
I had an interview at DHS on Monday. It's for a job that has absolutely no relation to working with kids... but it's a job, and like I said before... I'm not passing anything up.
The interview went well. The woman seemed to like me. The problem is, it's going to be a couple of weeks before I hear anything. And they don't expect anyone to start until August 22nd.
That afternoon, I received a call about a position working with preschool children - specializing in kids that have come from abusive homes. I interviewed for that position yesterday morning.
Walking in, I really had mixed emotions about the position. I was told that the position is not teaching, but working as an assistant to the lead teacher. The classes are very small, and the children all come from various situations - all involving some form of abuse, either sexual, physical, or emotional. My duties would include being the person that helps with behavioral management....more like a counselor type position than teaching.
Walking out, I was excited - and realized it's a job I'd enjoy doing.
Now, it's just time to sit and wait...again.
The summer is coming to an end - and I've been told by many that teaching jobs start to open up this time of year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm sure that there's something out there for me. I'm hoping if my will is strong enough - it will find me.
