The quest for work

I’m working today as a substitute at a school I love.  I’ve worked here for the last 5 or so years in various positions but today it makes me sad.  These are the last few weeks I will be here before I have to move on. Graduating from school has been bitter sweet in that regard.  I have to leave the school that has no open math teaching positions, and find a school that is hiring.  Yea, good luck with that one, right?  With my newly obtained master’s degree I have to get a real job.  One that pays a living wage – and provides insurance.  I could sub all year and probably make out just fine but the kids and I can’t be without insurance.  Makes me sad but it’s the grown up thing to do.  Ugh, I get shivers just thinking about the possibility of having to work in a main-stream math classroom.  One that houses an assembly line of middle schoolers – 30 in for 60 minutes, 30 out and break for 5 minutes – 30 new ones in for 60 minutes, 30 out and break for 5 minutes – repeat for 6 periods a day.  *shiver*

4th period is about to start, I just have to enjoy what I have for now and cross my fingers that I can find an alternative program that’s hiring.  Wish me luck.
