Yeah, the school year is finally over for the kids. However, for me it has just begun. In Bellingham it is a dog eat dog world when it comes to getting a job as a teacher. So far I have seen experienced teachers who were fulfilling a leave replacement contract lose their jobs to the green teachers fresh out of college. In the PE department they just juggled everyone around to fulfill the retired position. Unfortunatly since I was in the paraeducator world I was not even involved in the juggle. Every job I ended up applying for was fulfilled internally. So that left me out of the loop. That brings me to my moment of insanity.
The secretary that I was assisting is moving to the new school which means her position opened up. Some how she convinced me to apply for it. Well, I was the only internal canidate that was crazy to apply for it. I was offered the job and OMG I accepted it. What the hell was I thinking. Well I guess I am up for a heck of a challenge. So, my goal is to create a secretary handbook so that I can pass it on after this coming school year to the next crazy person. At least I will get paid more. If I don't get a PE job for the 2009-2010 school year we are getting the heck out of here.
