Restless

I am so impatient. About this week to be over, about this month to be over, about this school year to be over, about getting a teaching job somewhere else, about finding out where we're moving, about moving. Every day I check 30+ districts for openings. I run to my computer and compulsively check my email every 73 seconds. I keep hoping some school somewhere will see my application and email me to say that they've hired me on the spot, and the job comes with relocation money, and also? a beautiful house down the road! I submit online applications while my students are working independently (I know! I'm terrible!). If I could will this process to go faster, I would!
 
In the meantime, I'm attending a GIANT Teacher Job Fair tomorrow morning. Districts from around the country will be there and already, 800 teachers looking for work have registered to attend. Despite the odds, I have high hopes. I also got my first job interview scheduled for this Thursday afternoon with a school district in South Carolina. We'll see how that goes.
 
I am just SO tired of NOT KNOWING!!

I can definitely identify with impatience. I'll do almost anything to affect a quicker outcome to most situations. I wish you LOTS of luck on the job search!

God knows. And that is what really matters according to Hebrews 11:6! dad

Yeah, I'm with dad: be content to know the One who knows.

Easier said than done, of course, but it's a goal to strive for. The sooner you achieve it, the happier you'll be.

Myself, I'm still working on it... ;-)
