Well, as I said in my first post, I was non-renewed this year (just like thousands of other teachers). About two weeks ago, I noticed that my former employer had openings for teachers for next year. To say the least, I was upset. I felt a little betrayed. It just gets to me that I have put all of my effort in for the past three years, done everything they asked me to (got more certification, attended any training they wanted) and I was still let go. Anyway, I applied to all three positions that I am certified for and I actually have an interview this coming Friday.
To get ready, I have been shopping looking for a outfit that will make me look less like a whale than I am. I am serious, I am not one of those people that says they need to lose weight and you look at them and think they would disappear if they turned sideways. No, I am a size 30. Yep, I said it, it is out there in the world and there is no going back. I am FAT. But, I have been fat my whole life, so I am used to it.
Besides the interview, I have applied to over 20 openings. I have yet to get a response from any. Even if they don't want me, it would still be nice to just hear something like "Due to a lot of applicants....blah blah blah". But I don't even get that.
Don't worry, this blog isn't going to be all about getting a job. I won't subject you to that!
