    Three years ago I accepted a position that was 75 miles away in one direction I needed to clear my credential and I was grateful to have a job.

    I love my job and really didn't mind the commute. . .

    I am a single parent of a child with severe autism . . .

    Two weeks ago I had an interview at a district 12 miles away from my home. . . .it is for a high school mild to moderate autism position.. .

    I interview with them the same day of my dad's funeral. . .

    I did not hear back from them thought I would get a rejection but today

    :eek::eek::eek::eek:
    I got a job offer from the school 12 miles from my house.

    and its a substantial pay raise also :woot::woot::woot::woot:

    Most of all I will be closer to home. . .change it hard and I am leaving a position I love :love: but its the best thing to do for my family.

    PS its kind of my dream position also mild to moderate autism high school!!!!

    I got a new job!!!! I am so grateful. . . .

    I'm so happy for you! I have a special needs child so I know what a sacrifice it has been for you to be so far away from him.
