I have overall really decided I enjoy elementary teaching alot. I love the kids, they are absolutely the best medicine. I feel like I am learning how to put together lessons and building upon that learning, not totally accomplished, but feel more comfortable and enjoying it. I still have a half year to go to be done with my program. I am just soooo frustrated though about being able to find a job. I am here in CA and as you know it's NOT the place to be right now if you want to find a teaching job. I just wish I had done this in the 90's when they were practically begging for teachers . My first mentor teacher got a practically free ride to become an elementary teacher with the school system she works in now from that time period back in the 90's. Now with her length of time teaching and her being a decent teacher, those two things pretty much ensure she will always have a job. I am a little envious, I must say. I guess I'll just have to pray God opens some doors at the right time!
