*Here is an excerpt from my supe as to why I didn’t get my PE job.
There are two considerations of credentialing. Having a credential, and
content authorization within the credential. Because your position is
funded through a grant, a specific requirement is the position to be
filled by a teacher fully qualified to teach P.E. This year, we moved
funding around to make it work for all three new teachers funded under
That’s just part of it. My thought: How come I could teach it in January then? Weren’t we under the same grant then?
*Why does it feel like I’ve never run when I run the first time after the flu?
It was like week 2 of Couch to 5K. Like I was some NEWBIE runner; couldn’t even get up over the overpass like Kim, so had to run into the gym, do the treadmill and elliptical until she got done with her 2 miles, whereupon I met up with her for the rest of the run. I’m a wimp.
*I’m doing a lot of dating, but no marriage proposals yet.
School districts have 300 people applying for k-6 positions. How much luck will this older (not old, older) woman have against, say…a 24 year old who wants to teach PE? Not much, I’m afraid.
So I tell Wayne I can’t afford to color my hair. We agree that I should try to go gray. It’s been this way for a week. My mother, when she saw me today says, “Absolutely not. You will find a way to pay for it.” Yeah, Mom. Right after I try to pay my mortgage by myself.
*Happy Thought. Tonight, THE OFFICE.
