Hello all! I thought I'd just pop in and say hello after months of not writing anything. I quit my teaching job, finishing up the end of May. The market here is crazy for getting jobs, and news articles say it will only get worse because they will be making even more budget cuts. (What's left to cut?) The news reports that the recession was over a year ago, but I feel like it really just hit our area about a year ago.
When I quit, I decided not to even pursue another teaching job. It was too stressful trying to find something I knew I wouldn't be happy doing anyway. Instead I am staying home with my 18 month old daughter and home schooling my 3rd grade son. I am also babysitting 3 days a week and tutoring. Yes, I am busy and completely broke, but I am happier than I've been in a long time! I think about you all often, and wish you the best of luck in the most difficult of careers. Especially during this time of crisis in education and parenting.
