Confession #1: I’ve worked primarily at 2 schools in the district thus far… and dare I say, I like another school better than my “home” school, the one where I worked for 2+ years? Yeah, I said it. The students, teachers, and staff are so nice, respectful, and have such fun personalities. Something about it just fits me.
Okay, onto the serious business:
I went from a part-time job that I went to everyday to a pretty much full-time position everyday.
Then I became a regular day-to-day sub…
Well now I stare at this screen and press refresh every 5 or less minutes.
And I admit to buying and eating lots of dark chocolate covered raisins today. Stress eating…
I’ve been a day-to-day sub before and made good money doing this. I worked at least 4-5 days per week and didn’t have to stalk the online sub finding system.
Last month, work was good. I worked everyday except one.
This month? Not so much. It’s a bummer to have to wake up every morning not knowing if I will work.
I’m getting fingerprinted this afternoon for the county so they will finally have it on record and will be able to apply to all the districts in the area.
In March, I will have to student teach again and won’t be able to work so anything now is vital.
I’m also looking for weekend work, which would be perfect when I’m student teaching as well. Ideas?
All of this is disheartening. I have way too much experience, education, and love of this field to be where I am.
Picking high school social studies? Maybe not the best idea – it’s such a competitive area.
I will have more success with the special ed credential under my belt. I hope.
What are some jobs you’ve held while you were waiting for the right one?
I have other interests, mostly health & fitness related. What kind of jobs are out there that don’t require I spend more money on certifications?
I started my morning with a “BootyCall!”
Confession #3: Speaking of cinnamon rolls, I used to eat a cinnamon roll every Saturday. I would peruse nearby bakeries and farmers markets. My goal was to find the best cinnamon roll ever.
Favorite place to buy a cinnamon roll: Flat Rock Village Bakery is nestled in a cute town outside of Asheville, N.C.
Favorite cinnamon roll recipe: inappropriately named vegan “Orgasmic Cinnamon Roll.”
If this microwave cinnamon roll turns out, I will be in heaven.
What’s your favorite cinnamon roll recipe?
