After 6 months of filling out applications anywhere I can find them- I am burnt out.
Ever since I was in 1st grade I have said that I want to be a teacher. I spent 100,000 on a degree so that I would be able to do it, and do it well. I took advantage of every opportunity to network and grow as a professional. I was the top 5 of my class (we don't have a #1-5, just a general group) and this was based on grades, participation, classroom teaching, and review of peers. Yet somehow I am worthless to any school system in Indiana or Ohio.
I am burnt out. I don't want to fill out more 2 hour questioners for districts there is little information about. I don't want to be stuck in this town-home with the crazy amount of rent because we have to go month to month. I don't want to pass up other opportunities for other types of work and end up with nothing. I don't want my husband to give up this job that pays well and that he likes and end up with nothing. I don't want him to go through what I am going through just so that I might have a chance at teaching for one year. I don't want to be a stay home mom- because I don't want to be a mom! And I don't want to move hours away from my family.
Does anyone want a teacher. I swear I am freakin' awesome! k-6 licensed in multiple states! I have references who love my work! Please, can I beg? Is it ok to go to the districts and beg for a position?
I am burnt out, and have no idea how I am going to continue searching. And to all of my peers who are graduating next week with a job all ready lined up- don't brag, don't run it in, and i kind of hate you at the moment. Sorry, I am not that good of a person.
