I finally got a call from our school district today about interviewing. She said the only positions available in the fall will be resource - and two of the three openings are "traveling" positions which means I would work mornings at one school and afternoons at another. I can't tell you how sick this news is making me. I have never wanted to work resource, in fact it's right up there with behavior. What I wanted was my own self-contained instructional room - mild, mod, severe - whatever. She told me to think about it and call her back if wanted to be "in the interview pool." I just sat here in shock for 10 minutes and then called a buddy of mine - who happens to be working one of those traveling positions right now. She told me to do it - get my "feet in the door" and look for transfer positions next year. I'm just so sick right now. I swear I could just vomit. Here I've been gathering all these things for a classroom, and reading books, and getting prepared - and I'll be lucky to have a desk in a corner of someone else's small office, teaching somebody else's kids. I just don't even know what to think right now. Ironically the one full-time resource position is at my son's school. I have a really good relationship with the principal because I'm one of the two parents on their PTO. I considered calling him and begging him for the job. If I have to do resource, I may as well be at my son's school, right? And I'd much rather do the full time at one school than travel back and forth each day. I just don't know what to do!
