Round and round….

May 10, 2011 at 7:06 pm (family, life, teaching) (, , )

I found out a few weeks ago that I will not be teaching at my school next year.  I knew that there was a possibility of me dropping down to 4 or 5 classes instead of full-time 6, but I didn’t expect to be told to look elsewhere.  I gotta tell you that it sure hurts.  I’ve never been let go from a job before and it’s quite a blow to the pride.  For me the hardest part is knowing that there are some amazing students here that I won’t be working with. 

Because of some comments made by my boss I no longer feel comfortable at work.  Every time I see or hear something others say, I’m paranoid.  After a sneak-attack meeting where others were able to hear what was said, I’m full of doubt about who I am and doing what I thought God has called to do.  Add the sneak-attack to a very not nice email and a pretentious, act-like-he-didn’t-say-anything attitude and I am one very guarded girl. 

And it isn’t just me!  Another teacher had something similar happen to her.  Hubby’s job just gave him a raise and a promotion, so we are staying in the area, and we love our church (for the most part) so we want to stay in the area, maybe  move closer to Hubby’s job so his commute is shorter, but now starts the job search again.  UGH!

This move hasn’t been all bad.  We moved up here a year ago and since have become much closer to some friends of ours.  Financially we are better off here because the cost of living is cheaper than where we were. We decided more on when we want to start our family, and it’s sooner than we thought!   Also, we’ve added some awesome friends to our group (YAY!).  Now if I only knew what I was going to do for a job at the end of June…

Oh, and my foot? Still in a cast. 😦
