I recently took a temp assignment working in a call center. I found out the job could go permanent. Not exactly what I want to be doing, but I'm grateful for steady $ right now. It's giving me a chance to rethink some things. I've ignored my true love of drawing and painting. I'd love brush up (no pun intended, I think) on my portfolio, and even take the Art CSET...which I have been talking about forever. I still continue to apply for elementary teaching jobs, but out here in Southern California they are almost non existent. I still would love to teach high school visual arts. And, even with budget cuts there's still some jobs out there. All I know is, I've ignored my passion for way too long. Perhaps this is where God has placed me for that reason alone. Anyhow, if anybody else out there is working a job other than teaching, how are you handling it? A couple of gals last week were shocked when I told them I have a teaching credential. I guess for many, they still believe teaching is a profession where there should never be lack of work. :unsure: Anyhow, as I said I'm grateful for a job....hoping it lasts me until I either get a teaching job this year, or God willing for the next year while I save and add on to my certification.
