Wow! Just came home from walking the dog and here was a young boy on the corner with a backpack. School starts today in my neighborhood. Had I seen a school bus I might have had that resentment that i have felt for the past 2 school years. A sub again. *sigh* BUT... I am going on an interview in another district today. This is my first interview since late May. It's not a position I really LIKE... special ed aide in a jr high (not special ed qualified though I have worked with special ed and tierd 2&3 students in small group and individual circumstances...and jr high? though I have worked with those ages a number of times in the past- they aren't my favorite years). Being a special ed aide and not an instruction/classroom aide...I'm not sure that that will move me into a classroom teacher position, BUT I think being IN the school will help me network and have the early chance at internal job hunts. The nervous part about this.... the interview is being video taped. If I mess up - it'll be in district for all to see for a WHILE yet. *bites nails* Ok... Wish me well. If not this (or the many last minute job opening applications I've been doing this last week) I'm actually at peace with doing subbing for one last year. If nothing comes by next September i am more comfortable with the idea of moving on. Sad, but getting to a position of surrender to the possibility.
