Hey! I haven't talked about That Job I Have And Do Not Like in a while...
Last week, I got a letter. One of the districts I had applied to (as a sub) recently, sent me a letter to invite me to an interview. This interview will be a mere formality, judging from the letter.
Ever since I started working where I am now, I've hoped for another job. I check the job listings on the internet EVERY MORNING before heading off for work.
Ever since I received that letter, I've been plagued by doubts about whether I should stay or go. After all, I was doing something noble. I was starting to feel a little more included (though not much). They finally started emptying my trash. The shy girl I have finally spoke a complete sentence on Friday.
Ever since I read that letter, I've been thinking about what would be more likely to get me hired next school year: Putting "intervention teacher" on my resumee for Nov.06 - June07 or subbing at multiple schools/districts?
Ever since this morning, I have a much bigger motivation to quit and move on.
I spent the entire three-day weekend rinsing my sinuses and coughing, miserably hanging out on the couch - except for a trip to the doctor's office, where I was diagnosed with bronchitis, given a prescription for antibiotics, and advised to stay home until Wednesday or Thursday. When I called in sick this morning, the principal herself answered the phone, and instead of wishing me well or showing some sympathy, she treated me as though I was sick purposely to hurt her.
I'm going to give it my all in the interview. And once they hire me, I'll quit this job. And not look back.
