Day 51 of 365: Back to School
So, what has TWO thumbs and may also soon have potential long-term employment?!
*points thumbs towards self*
I received a phone call yesterday about a position in a primary school in Birmingham that needs a Year 4 teacher to start for January. It's a long-term post to finish out the school year through July. Timeplan sent them my details this afternoon and had a reply off them within the hour! They even want me to come in next Thursday for a "trial day" in Year 5, and I will get paid as if it were a supply post!!
For now, I'm brushing up on the curriculum and getting some backup lessons prepared just in case. Year 4 is about the same as 3rd grade in the US, and 3rd grade happens to be the grade I taught my first year out of University.
Woo hoo for £110 for the day...that's petrol and groceries for next week! I won't waste away into nothing after all. :-P
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
