    Sooo beyond excited and thrilled!!! Got the first grade long term sub position I interviewed for! It still doesn't seem real. I start the middle of this week. It is a great school and I am so happy to finally get my foot in the door. It is only until January but will definitely make the most of it and hopefully get picked up somewhere else.

    Thanks everyone for all of your support and advice! Good luck to everyone still looking. There is still time so don't give up. This came totally out of the blue for me. :D

    I didn't get a teaching job this summer

    and not sure which way to turn right now. I'm newly certified in English Language Arts 5-12 and sped, mild to mod. I'm over 50 with a college degree from an ivy league but have never really worked in that field b/c I chose to stay home with kids instead and stayed out for years. I work as a para right now and I'm bored with it and the pay is quite low and my husband is divorcing me after 23 years of marriage and he's pressuring me to get a higher paying job outside of teaching so he doesn't have to pay maintenance, but I told him to lay off b/c I was working on this when he decided to leave.

    I guess my questions are--what are my chances of getting a teaching job this late in the school year and at my age, will there be any opportunities to come in as a new teacher? What would you do if you were in my shoes? I'm afraid that if I change careers entirely, I'll probably never teach, but I'm also afraid that it could take years for the teaching job market to recover and that I'd still never teach. BTW, most of the teachers I work with seem to think that I'm very good at working with the kids and I'm told that I have a gift for teaching.
