Well, it has begun. Again…
I’ve been applying for jobs in Virginia and Tennessee in my valid effort to come back. I was so excited when I got word that a school wanted to interview me via Skype. This is mainly because my efforts to attract the attention of schools in East Tennessee are falling flat.
Well, not just Tennessee.
I am again preparing myself for an onslaught of rejection. Not having jobs that are not a good fit for me–that I can handle. Being rejected is a bit harder.
If I’m going to be completely honest, I was feeling a bit spotty about the whole situation to begin with. I would have loved being with my friend (and an amazing teacher) again. The population is the one I want. The opportunities are endless.
But it leads down the career path. (You Virginia-ers know what I mean, right?)
I think I’m looking for a smaller community. The kind I can teach in for years. The kind I’d like my children to grow up in.
And still… Rejection is not an easy pill to swallow. I need a shot of faith to help it go down.
