Today was the day that Wyoming Public Schools said that those of us with pink slips would get the news on our job situation. Sure enough, I got home from an afternoon out, and waiting for me was the envelope.
Holding the envelope, I felt almost sure nothing was going to change about my job situation, but the fact that I was HOLDING an envelope meant that something COULD have changed, so there was still that twinge.
I tore the envelope open and stared at the words, but I didn't see them. It's like when you have dreams and you can't read--that is how it felt. I blindly searched for the part that WASN'T a form letter--the part where it gave me my personalized info.
There it was:
for second semester your assignment will be 1.0 English Teacher at Wyoming Park High School (unchanged),
PHEW!!! Even though I wasn't expecting my job to change, the chance was still there, and seeing the proof and reassurance that everything was the same almost brought tears to my eyes.
What a wonderful Christmas gift for my family: one job that I love plus a new, part-time job (see post below or click here to read it) that I hope to love!
Bring on the holiday celebrations because we have so very much to celebrate this year!
