    Okay, warning...this is a major gripe.

    As I mentioned in a different post, I decided to take a part-time para job, 1.) hoping that it may lead to something else 2.) until something else comes along 3.)to keep me active in teaching.

    I went yesterday to do the paperwork and get fingerprinted. I was hoping that I could at least start next week, after Labor Day. Well, I was told yesterday that they would have to wait until my prints came back, which usually takes 3-4 WEEKS! :eek:

    I know, at least I have a job, but I really need $$$ NOW! Not to mention, I have been fingerprinted by other districts already - why can't they just share the results??? :confused:

    It is so frustrating - I just want to start working....:beatdeadhorse:

    Thanks and good luck to all.....

    Whoa...3 to 4 weeks. We must have super speedy finger-printing. It doesn't take nearly that long.

    And yes...I have been finger-printed... ummm... at three different places. One area uses the high school. Another uses the county department of education. And the third...a HUGE district, does it themselves.

    Well... pick a project around your house, or something you have always wanted to do...and DO IT!

    (ME? I desperately want to go to visit my father (83) in Florida. I havent' seen him in over a year. I swore when I get a job, or in September if I didn't, that I would go down to stay with him for a week. During the summer it was applications, applications, applications and now... my son has some problems - and I can't get away.)

    Do all the things you WANTED to do in the summer but couldn't (because you were on the search). Paint your home/room. Rearrange the furniture, resting secure that you HAVE a job-but not yet.

    Toot, this is YOUR summer...go, enjoy!

    I'm sorry toot. It's too bad things like that take so long. I like McKenna's advice though. Sleep in, be lazy, enjoy this little vacation! Before you know it, you'll be waking up early, on your feet all day, and working hard!

    Or a temp permit from your state's education office while you're waiting for results. See if they have that in your state!

    I'm sorry. You'd think they would have hired people a few weeks ago if they knew it would take that long. Hope it goes by quickly for you OR you get a teaching job in that time!
