Just giving a quick update. Yes I moved to DC. Found a great place, found a job and looking for a second job so I can afford to shop. LOL.
Totally excited about my new life. Missing my family and friends alot though. Definitely can't wait to go home to visit.
But I'm loving the area, its right off a metro, the area has lots of cool things to do and see.
I'll actually be finishing the year as an aide but will be up for a teacher position next year. Here's the thing though. I want to stay an aide. I'd much rather be an aide, work a second job to take up the financial slack and just be able to go home.
I'm tired of all the other crap that goes along with teaching. I'll sub or be an aide, but I honestly don't know if I want to be in charge of a classroom again. I would love the opportunity to be an instructional coach, but I'll wait till I've been in the system a minute.
Now here's hoping they don't do what they did last year and lay off 900 people after they hired them. But hey, I'll just sub in other districts. Super fun times. Yay.
So, I'm on my new journey and enjoying it so far. Happiness is a hard choice to make, but I'm making it now and I love it.
