Friday I got some disappointing news. I didn't get the summer school teaching position I was hoping for, and it really bummed me out. I knew going in that it was pretty unlikely, because all the full time teachers in the district had priority...I'm just a sub.
But then yesterday I got some good news. I passed 3 tests I needed to add a single subject biology credential to the multiple subject credential I already have. That was a huge relief.
I ran 2 miles to the track and got going on the first one. I felt strong, and came in at 4:09. The second was 4:10, then 4:06, 4:05, and 4:02. They were hard, but in a good way, and it definitely felt like a pace I could hold for longer. This workout was a MAJOR confidence booster.
So good things in 3s...so far we've got my test results and this track workout. Wednesday I have an interview for a full-time junior high science teaching position for next year. I've been subbing at the school a lot, talked with the principal and a bunch of the teachers, and feel like the school is a perfect fit for me. I will be absolutely ecstatic if I get this job (and if I don't, I actually like substitute teaching and it wouldn't kill me to do it again next year).
