    Exclamation po, is that 85 miles each way? I debating whether or not I should take a new position that'll double my salary, but is about 45 miles each way. And I can't leave out that it's my dream position, primary literacy coaching position. Sooooo confused right now!

    Iteachtwo yes, that's 85 miles each way. An hour and a half to two and a half hours depending on traffic. I would offer a bribe for a job 45 miles each way.

    Take the job. Being 30 to 45 miles away from school sounds like a lot, but think about this.... If you're at the grocery store or pharmacy and don't look your best, do you really want to run into students or parents? And the drive will give you time to run through lessons and/or decompress from the day.

    Exclamation Po, no I wouldn't want anyone to see me when I'm not looking my best. I'm possibly looking at 1 1/2 hours in the AM commute and 1 1/2-2 hours during the PM commute. Another important factor I can't believe I left out is that my children will be so far from me in case of an emergency. Even though my husband would be much closer, I'm used to dealing with the kids' emergencies.

    Unfortunately I am still in this category. I just had an interview and demo for the school I am an aid in and they told me that I am not experienced enough for the position. : ( How do you get experience if no one will hire you?

    me, but I still am hoping to hear back about either the private school or APS. I am also waiting to see if my nmreap application did anygood. I expressed interest in about ten jobs or so earlier today. The harderst thing for me is the misleading news reports all my friends and family keep seeing. They don't understand why people aren't begging for the large number of us looking for a job.

    Ugh. I qualify for this club, unfortunately. I haven't had any interviews, or even a phone call, for that matter. I don't know what to do. :(

    Me too. I have had one interview and that was not a planned one, I kind of stumbled into it. It went well but I don't know if it will come to anything. I am not going to be negative..someone will call with the perfect job any day now, or any job or.. I just have to remember that God is in control and not me.
