So I have decided to leave the job I am at now. It comes with a hope that I will be able to get a job in Delaware. I never like letting go of one job if I don’t have a secure hold on the new one. Not only do I get the pleasure of filling out the identical applications time and time again; but if I want to teach in Delaware I need to get my certification in the state. Here is the fun of jumping through hoops even more. I wish it was as simple as sending them my PA certification and them saying excellent here is your DE certification. But no it is not. I have to go to my principal and ask her to fill out a form saying I have received 2 or more satisfactory evaluations. Now this is where it pulls at my heart-strings. I have to ask a favor of someone who doesn’t want me to leave. It is like rubbing salt in her wound. Everything else seems like a piece of cake apart from that.
Don’t get my wrong my nerves are as close to being fried as they come. Everything seems to be counting down. My grad class is coming to an end yet I feel I have some much more to learn on the topic. My wedding plans are at a stand still till I find a venue (I still have to look at 8 more and I detest it!). My school only has 9 more weeks of teaching left. My interviews are piling up but I truly dislike the waiting game they play. You interview with them you think it went well and then you hear nothing! It will be one stressful summer until I know for sure I have a teaching job for next year. If not, what then? Do I move in with my fiance in Delaware and try to get any job to keep my bills paid? Do I stay with my parents and sub around the school districts? Then what will happen next year when I actually get married? Life is full of uncertainty….sometimes I just need to remind myself to have faith.
