All of my prior looking landed me a nanny gig which I greatly appreciate- I mean who doesn't love this face!
However, my passion is the classroom. I am feeling the pains of being graduated for a while and not working. Everyone says "be a sub"- well no duh, I have tried. Because of recent budget cut announcements all districts in the area that I live have gone on a hiring freeze. The only positions are those for Custodial staff (for which my husband would like to tell everyone I am not qualified for).
So I looked outside of our area. My hubby knows how important this is to me so he is willing to give up his really great job (which makes more than a teacher does, when commission is good) so that I can teach. We started looking into the state next door where I am from, in the area where my parents live- ok basically all of central Indiana (Muncie to Greenfield). Guess what- no luck.
Everyone from the university that I went to are talking about getting their applications in, resumes out, etc. I feel like I am at a disadvantage because I graduated early. That should not be the case! I am beginning to feel out of touch with teaching and the classroom- I am hoping these are not use 'em or lose 'em skills!
It is also very frustrating to know that some people who are not as good as you already have contracts secured. I graduated as one of the best in my class (top 5 for my degree, and I am not just talking about grades here). Why is it that no one will contact me for anything?
Are there jobs out there? Is this a failing cause? Should be really be looking into moving? Should I just Sub and Nanny for the rest of my life? Why is this so frustrating?!! grugh!
