Waiting for the phone call about new job....

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

emoticon As many of you know, I was laid off from my teaching job this past June. I was supposed to receive tenure this fall. Today, they closed my email account at school. The final sign that God has closed that door. It actually stings to have that happen.

However, I did go on a job interview yesterday for a teaching job in a middle school. I have been missing middle school since I left it in 2007 to raise my son (he was sick...bad day care).

I am so nervous about this job. I had no idea that it meant so much to me until I was sitting there with lovely teachers trying my best to interview for this job. In my nervousness, I was talking too much. But...I was honest and direct and likeable (or at least I thought so).

So...I wait for that phone call. I wait for that new chance. God please open the door again for me.

Please pray for peace and that phone call! I will keep my spark family posted.

I did not tell my real family as I did not want to get their hopes up. I am praying to be able to surprise them with good news!

    As a retired teacher I feel for you. I loved teaching and my retirement was medical problems that couldn't be resolved. I was older teacher with a lot of experience and Masters so they really were trying to get rid of me to hire a cheaper paid teacher. They replaced me with teachers aide. It hurts. I feel your pain.

    Love and prayers coming your way. As you know, I've been in your shoes, and I understand not wanting to disappoint the family. I also understand how it stings to have your email account closed. I was laid off from a job once (as a contractor it happens a lot, but this was a full time job that I thought would carry me into retirement), and my email was closed by the time I got back to my desk. Boy did that hurt.

Do keep us posted!!!

    Best to you!! I was laid off last year while out on maternity leave. Actually it was 5:00pm on the Friday before I was to return to work, via phone. After four years there.
Such adventures!

I know what it is to be out of work... but I've also had the opportunity to be home with my three monkeys, and otherwise this time would have all passed by just the same, just with most of their time in daycare.

So, I guess to say... look for the silver lining, yadda yadda platitude... and x'ing fingers for that phone call for you!
