Those words keep going round and round in my head. My university supervisor...the one who left the university..and I tracked down wrote me to say: ".....I do know your ability to teach ..... Good luck in your job search. Jobs are hard to find so you will have to branch out." Branch out. hmmmm. Branch out to what? I'm trying to think. Years ago I was offered a job of children's educational coordinator-like principal- for my (at the time) church. But THAT just HAPPENED to fall into my lap...not something you find in the classifieds. i looked into the major educational publishers..thinking I would be good at presenting professional development seminars... but there is nothing like that available...and nothing at all available HERE for something i wouldbe qualified for. If you want to stay tied into education...but branch out (but NOT go back and get more $$$$ education...I can't throw more money into this at THIS point. I'm broke and I'm afraid it would be ignored as well) what are the possibiliies? maybe this would be a good discussion for this area of the forum. Besides going into retail, or working as a receptionist at a dentist's office as a side job...what could you DO to branch out in education?
