Last year I posted about leaving my job to get a Masters in Teaching with the goal of becoming a teacher in my home district, which I have some affection towards. In November the district RIF'd four dozen teachers. Guest speakers in Ed. School were practically laughing at our prospects for finding work as new teachers. Things in IL looked bleak, and my bank account was slowly approaching zero.

This summer, none of my resumes were bearing fruit. Not only were few schools hiring, but there was a wave of fired, experienced teachers on top of me. Meanwhile, I still had to make all the non-refundable deposits for day-care and preschool for September.

Today I got a gig, in my home district, six blocks from my house. It was the one and only interview I was called for, and I got it.

Booyah!

I don't think it'll be possible. I think there's just going to be too much work that weekend.

Have fun in our fair city.

Way to go!

When you start teaching, tell those kids to shape up or ship out! Today's youngsters are nothin' but trouble.

I'd give you crap about the AIE stuff, but I don't want your dumb students showing up here.

That's awesome news. What are you going to be teaching?
