Unless something changes (which is often the case with schools), I'm the proud owner of a new job. On paper, my job right now is perfect. I'm working 1/4 time, consulting for an education planner, doing exactly what I'd like to do. Unfortunately, 1/4 time ends up being nothing for months, and then full time for a while. While I'm doing some workshops and research, most of the work is quite boring and tedious, and since there's no office, I don't get much contact with real people out of the deal. So I think once the baby's born, I'm done with it for a while.
So the new job... In the fall, I'm going to cover a maternity leave for a teacher who's teaching 3 classes. It's unclear exactly how long it'll last, but I'll be teaching mornings (7:30 - 11:30 with an hour break in the middle). It's high school English, at Hopedale High (5 minute walk down the street). It'll be a completely different experience to Oakland, but I'm excited to see if I'll enjoy teaching there or not. If I like it, it'd be a really convenient job to have with young kids, so we'll see how it works out.
Merry Christmas Everyone
