Sadly, I found out that I didn't get called back from my lay-off status. I've been sending resumes out like crazy, only to get the standard response, "thanks, but no thanks." I had an interview at another district 4 weeks ago and while I thought it went well, I didn't get called for the job. I really think that in this economy, it's all who you know. And, to be honest, when I got hired by my former district 11 years ago, my volunteer work got my foot in the door there. When The Boy was in second grade, I went in at the beginning of the school year and volunteered my services one day a week. His teacher went around to other teachers and set up a schedule for me and I loved every minute of it. So, by second semester, I signed up to be a substitute, and worked a lot. At the end of the school year, I signed a contract for full time work for the next school year....and the rest is history.
I'm hoping and praying that something comes open soon. I know that when God closes a door, another opens, I just need to have patience. And...patience isn't one of my strong suits! ;)
