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 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 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. . . .
