    Well the economy has hit my school :eek:hmy: Our school has closed due to low enrollment. we have declined every year for the past 4-5 years. My coop teacher from student teaching is attempting to put my name out there for a local public school (which would be a miracle considering there are over 1300 applications and only 2 teaching positions in the whole district!). I have a couple of other options too- so please keep me in prayer during these hard times.

    I am so sorry :hugs:. Does your school district not have to find you a job if your school closes down?

    Private school :unsure: Our last day was a Friday- They told us that next Monday and told us that everything had to be out and our keys turned in by Friday:eek:hmy: That was a nightmare! But it is good- I am looking forward to moving on, but it is hard finding anything right now!

    I am sorry to hear about your school and job. How great that you look forward to moving on. Good attitude - good for you! They say that God closes a door and opens a window. Have faith and we'll keep you in our prayers.

    I lost my job in May.

    Been working part time in Wal-Mart.

    Had one offer, and they never followed thru. Had a good interview 3weeks ago. Don't know what happened to them.

    Will keep you in prayers. Hopefully, things will turn out better for us next month.

    I pray that things work out for you! I know that God has a plan for each of us and we just have to allow Him to work in our lives.

    thanks! take some time to relax, review and revisit life for what it is. Once you start looking, it can be tempting to vent, and you can get frustrated because you have time but no money to do things that need to be done.

    I read somewhere that surviving death of a loved one, divorce, moving and job loss are the biggest stressors we must face. Unfortunately, most people are not very sympathetic to divorce or moving, and job loss always seems to point fingers in your direction :eek:

    So, be easy on yourself. You know exactly what happened. Be prepared to have all your answers when you get back out there and start interviewing. If you are unhappy or uncomfortable about anything...now is the time to work it out.
