Since there are only a select few who actually read this blog...I thought I would journal some thoughts. Today was my first day back at home since before the state mandated testing took place last week. Oh my days at home during the week, how I've missed you!! :) Here's the part I really want to blog about. I was checking out school websites last night. I'm working part time this year in the Bentonville school district. I was given a 1 year contract--period. There is no guarantee that I'll be hired back next year part or full time. I knew that when I accepted the position. Anyway...I've been browsing a couple of school webites--Gentry and Siloam Springs. When much to my suprise and excitement Siloam has a position open for a middle school math teacher. Here's where the sunbeams shine down on me from heaven! :) So this morning I called the middle school to see about taking a resume to the principal. They suggested I come this afternoon. After dropping Drew and Mel off to be with my niece I took in my resume. I was so glad to meet the principal! We kind of had a mini-interview right there in the entry area of the school office. She informed me that there were going to possibly be 2 math positions available--Yay! My little mini-interview went great--I thought. She let me know that she was putting together her applicant pool this afternoon, and I should get a call before the end of this week to have an interview next week! BONUS! I'm trying to control my excitement because there's always the possibility of not being hired there, let alone score an interview. But I can't help it!!!
Let me add that I have enjoyed being at Bentonville, and if I am to work there again next year (hopefully full-time) that is fine with me. I have NOTHING against that school. BUT if I can be hired by Siloam Springs or Gentry, if a position comes open, that would be even better. Mostly because they are not far from home. My commute to Bville is about an hour--ugh! IF I am fortunate enough to be able to work at Siloam the transition should be pretty easy. Siloam uses a similar math program that Bentonville does--EXTRA BONUS! I really like that program, and am looking forward to doing an even better job at it next year!
Okay, I'm sure if you are reading this you are glad that I don't teach English--ME TOO! But it's my blog, and I can type any way I want to. :) So you can imagine my new prayer request. Lord, you have taken care of me so well since before I was born. I know You will continue to do so. If this is part of Your will for me, I pray You will continue to allow everything to fall into place as it should. My biggest fear is to be out of Your will. You know the plans You have for me. I trust You with all of it! Amen!
