I'm a kindergarten teacher! After much pondering I decided to take a job I was just offered last week to teach kindergarten at a small, private, nondenominational school. I get to teach the curriculum that I taught in first grade, and use all of my supplies that I spent tons of money on last year (Ryan's happy about that) and I have my whole class to myself and it's all up to me!
It's going to be a lot of work because school starts on August 18th (aaaaaahhhhhhhh!) but I know I can do it. Ryan is very supportive and so happy that I was able to find a job, as am I but I'm also overwhelmed with everything that has to be done to get the school year started. I'm very grateful to have found a job because the teaching market is very competitive right now as there are NO JOBS and I've been searching since March. There were over 50 applicants and they chose me, wooohooo!
It's close to home, the pay isn't fabulous but there isn't a lot of money to be made in teaching anyways. I'm grateful to be able to teach again, especially a grade I feel comfortable with, and I'm very thankful that I was able to find a job so quickly (I interviewed twice last week and they let me know Thursday) and so close to home! From now on every second is going to be spent getting ready for school. I formally start next Monday, but I already got started today. Hopefully I'll have my class set up this week so that next week I can plan the first couple of weeks of school in the next 2 weeks!
