More jobs to apply for. They keep cropping up, and that’s good, but the point is to actually get an interview and then have that one shot to let the principal and other team members know that I am the one they need, and they’ll be missing something if they don’t hire me!
I have applications out in elementary and ESL and just found another ESL posting and one for a reading teacher. With licensure in all of those areas, plus Deaf/Hard of Hearing, I should be very hireable. And longevity! If they want someone who’s going to stay until retirement, that’s the plan! I plan to love my job and put everything I have into it. And what I have is a lot! I have a cohort full of candidates for licensure as reading specialists who will attest to my knowledge and devotion to children’s literacy, and soon I’ll have the license to prove it too! Why would principals not be banging on my door, begging me to come and teach their students and advise them and their teachers on best practices in teaching struggling readers?!
