I was told about a job at a facility for persons with MRDD. The students live at the school and attend school on campus. This program is a respite-type program, and the kids stay no longer than 45 days. The purpose of the program is to get the kids ready for school in a public setting. There are various reasons why a kid would be at the facility. The person who told me about the job knows me well. I used to teach her child. She said that she thinks I would be PERFECT for the job. She works there too, and said to give her my application/resume and she would put in a good word for me. She knows my passion for students with cognitive disabilities, and she thinks I would love it, because everyone at the school has the same interest in mind: The EC kids. (The students must have severe cognitive delays to attend the school.) Here's the great thing: I would make at least $8,000 more a year. Here's the bad thing: No breaks. Not even holidays. Only weekends. It is truly year round. Would you do it? I do love my breaks, because I have a child, and I love spending the extra time with him. Let me also add....I really, really, really need the extra money.
