Now that I am officially done with this whole English degree/school thing, I suppose it’s time I start the whole searching for a job thing.
Tonight, I actually have a third interview for a job that I really, really, really don’t want. So why am I going you ask. Well, I have this irrational fear that this will be the only job I’m offered, and thus, shouldn’t I at least continue to pursue it just in case my fear comes true. I’m crazy, I know. The rational part of my brain usually kicks in and reminds me that I am a college educated woman and that I will be able to find a job. That not only will I find a job, but that I will find a job that I enjoy.
Right now I’m
pretty sure absolutely positive that I want to teach. I have been doing the whole tutor/mentor thing this semester and I have fallen in love with the idea of doing that full time. I come home from my hour of hanging out with her and I can’t stop smiling. I love it. I know that I am supposed to be working with children. I just know it in my heart.
Here’s the cool thing. My college offers an Alternative Teacher Certification Program. What that means is that I would get a temporary teaching certificate thus allowing me to begin teaching in the fall – like really actually teaching. I would continue to take classes in the evenings (who said I wanted to leave college) and would earn my full teaching certificate and second bachelors by the end of next spring (hopefully). How cool is that?
I have been on the phone with three school districts and two private schools this morning discussing options. I am so flippin’ excited!
So why am I going to this interview tonight…Oh yeah, because I’m crazy. Ya gotta love the anxiety.
