Applying for job!

I have been applying for jobs. I was getting a little frustrated because the jobs where we were going to live weren't getting posted. I was applying far away. But today when I checked one of the two districts we'll be living by, there were three jobs there! Wahoo! So I applied to all three of them. I hope, I hope, I hope! That would be a load off, that is for sure.

In other news, my girls are going to VBS and I'm not volunteering for the first time. The truth is, I have too much homework and am having trouble keeping up with my house work and yard work. So I can't volunteer for too much this summer. My class has us reading a ton of pages a week. And every time I sit down to read, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. :)

The Job Hunt

I'm starting to get a little worried about finding a job in Portland. There haven't been any jobs posted yet in the town my husband is going to be working in, or the next town that we hope to live in. I sure hope I don't have to drive far for work. Times are tough, but there should be jobs for a Special Education teacher, surely.

Do I know you?

Wow! I have come to the realization that I don't know my last school at all! I was only there a year, and only worked 1/2 time at that. But goodness... In a class I'm taking right now, I'm having to make suggestions and relate some details about my school. I drew a blank for most of it. I don't know if the other teachers work as a grade level team. I don't know if there is any collaboration in that school at all? I suspect not much since the principal is going to a collaboration class this summer, and taking some teachers with her.

It makes me sad that I worked there a year and didn't know hardly anything about that school. I hope that I am at my next school longer so I can get to know the inner workings of the school better. And hopefully contribute something to that school.
