    I move back across the state in ten days. Back to Fort Worth from Nacogdoches. Last year I moved from Fort Worth to Nacogdoches last minute for a job. Many of you may remember my saga but if not its here: http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?t=162678
    After getting a year of experience I had not problems getting interviews and a job compared to last year.

    I drove up on Monday and found a house in Arlington about two blocks from the lake. Great schools for my son and only about a 12 mile drive to my school in Fort Worth. My son is so happy we are moving back to the area and close to family. Ill rent for a year and take my time finding a house to buy.

    I'm so happy to get out this school. The things I was warned about at the school were even worse than they were made out to be. Its crazy but I survived. I never met so many two faced stab you in the back in a heartbeat people on my life and I worked for an airline for 13 years. So I kept to myself and didn't make many friends there. Actually it was a pretty lonely experience working there. So I am looking forward to a new year and new experiences and close to my friends again. So many things to do up there compared to here not to mention the huge pay raise going up there.

    So the third of August starts a new chapter in my life.

    I remember last year too! What is your new position like?

    I'm glad you survived, however awful it was. I had a tough year too, subbing in a very disorganized school with little in the way of support. And I mean SRBI procedures not being implemented, even! My floor was cleaned at Christmas and then not again until February. And I mean it wasn't even swept. I'm not exaggerating.

    Still it sounds like you had it worse. I'm glad you're out. I was a LTS so I am now job hunting and hoping to find something much better.

    I understand the disorganization. My school was the worst. I asked for help and training the whole year and got nothing. None what so ever. I finally got some resources for testing in March but was not allowed to use them until next year.

    My new position is actually the same as this past year. 3rd grade math. So at least I'm not changing too much.


    I'm ready to tip toe thru the tulips, I have had enough of walking thru the other.

    Well I drove to Oklahoma this morning and picked my son up from his mother. So one more step of the puzzle in place.

    Well I finally got the call yesterday that I was approved to rent the house. So next Wednesday is moving day. the house is almost packed. I would start this weekend but I am taking two summers masters courses and finals are next Tuesday. I still have 9 papers 2 quizzes and 2 finals. So there is no way I can move before I finish all that. On the plus side. Once summer school is finished I am only two more classes away from completing my masters degree. Ill graduate in December.

    Wow! What a busy time for you. I remember how tentative everything last year was for you. It sounds like you have found your niche (and so happy for your son, also!)

    My year was similar to yours. I had to move from Houston to Waco to find a job. Saturday I am moving back to the suburbs of Houston to start teaching. I am so excited. My new schools seems awesome and supportive and I look forward to a year.

    Congrats to you and best of luck in your new school!

    First of all, congratulations on getting through that rough experience. I think it speaks volume of you are as a person and teacher to ¨stick it out¨ while looking for a better opportunity (and healthier situation). Secondly, congratulations on the new job! It already sounds like things are turning up for you.
