A Vacation and a Job Offer

Posted in Uncategorized tagged at 1:01 pm by a care in the world

It’s amazing what you’ll do when you’re job hunting… I just spent several days with my family at the beach for my cousin’s wedding, and had a last minute opportunity to visit a school. I drove four hours from the beach and back to spend the day at this school, and got offered the maternity leave position they were looking to fill. I believe I mentioned this job in my last post– well, I got it! I’ll be teaching World History, Economics, and managing the Yearbook for a couple of months this fall. I’m all over World History, but Economics is definitely going to stretch me. This is the text they’re using:

Any other suggestions? Has anyone read this book? The class also uses Freakonomics, and I’ve read that before.

I’m a little disappointed that it’s not a full-time position, but it’s my only option at this point. I’m going to keep my eyes peeled, but I’m also throwing myself headfirst into reading and preparing for these classes. Maybe it will lead to something greater! For now, I’ll begin selecting audiobooks for my hour-long commute 🙂
