By the movements of the gods of teaching, and whatever else runs the universe right now, I’ve somehow managed to find a position teaching FULL-TIME until the end of the year.
Salary and Benefits never sounded so sweet!
The catch is that it is at my old school where I taught last year. Anyone who remembers my mindset last year would understand how that might be an issue for me. That’s all I’ll say about that on a public blog.
Sufficed to say that I’m not looking this incredibly stressful gift-horse in the mouth. In this economy, I likely will not find another teaching job for next year. My county is currently cutting back 3% across the board, and teachers are being displaced left and right. Next year, since I likely won’t find a teaching job, I’ll have to venture back to the private sector. After the week I just had, I’m not at all sure that this is a bad thing…
