I wonder if there will be a day when I can actually teach at one school, have health insurance, and make a decent paycheck. Let’s be clear that I’m not looking for a short cut, an “easy job”, or anything of the sort. I went to school for four years. I went to an unbelievably expensive graduate school for another two. (Did anyone twist my arm on that? No. But did I think it would be almost IMPOSSIBLE to find a full-time job teaching? NO.) I followed the rules. I did what I was supposed to do. I put THE TIME IN…and yet…well, part sub/part-teach/part loco…motion?
I will be subbing in a new district soon. Joy.
I am teaching part-time, and that actually does give me true joy.
I will constantly be writing, moving, and looking for ways to keep my head above water. Constant movement is the name of the game people!
One day, I will look back on this and laugh.
