Boring post.

Thanks to all the teachers giving me feedback. I actually applied yesterday for several aide positions as well as subbing.

I am delivering three applications on Friday when I know the principals will be there. And I have sent many personal emails as well.

With absolutely no response.

What makes me sad is that I know the meanest woman ever who going back into teaching just because she needs a job. She has 8 years experience. And HATES teaching. You can just tell by looking at her she is a miserable soul.

BUT she got one of the Kinder positions that I wanted. .

It makes me sad. I know I have no classroom experience, yet I do have lots of child development experience, TONS of energy and a I KNOW I will be the best teacher ever and my kids will love me. If I would of just had an interview, I would of had the job. I just know it.

The whole Baptist thing didn't work out, and I am SO glad. The only reason that position fell through is because of me not being Baptist enough. And I might of been a bit fashion forward for them. Just sayin'.

On August 8, I am taking my Special Ed content test. Hopefully this will give me the edge as well.

So this is where I am now. I don't want to do anything else. I want to teach, I want to have lots of kids around me every day. (That aren't mine.)

Ugh! SO frustrating. If y'all have any other tips, then let me know. I will do anything to get a job teaching.

I said I would go topless, but now I will just go naked. I don't care. I will. Not kidding at all.

Oh honey...I'm sorry you are having such a tough time! It is so hard to see people doing the job that WE want to do and know are better for.

hang in there...I would have your teacher friends take a resume in...personal referrals are the best!

And yes, you are better off not being at the Baptist would have to change your lifestyle...not acceptable for you to have to do that for a job...just not right.

I know it must be frustrating but believe me, the perfect opportunity is going to come for you. I was laid off for 3 months but I held out for the perfect fit. And I got it.
