Yesterday something good and worrisome happened.
First, the worrisome part :) For a while, I wasn't worried about not having job security, but an acquaintance of mine pointed out that there's a possibility a few of our schools are going to be merged and there will be a few librarians in need of a library. Granted I have an English and Social Studies endorsement, but I'm not really qualified to teach since I've never taught (outside the library). So that got me thinking...we haven't gotten our contracts in and who's to say I won't be put in a classroom because of all the librarians in our district, I'm the 2nd to last in experience (5 1/2 years).
And that leads us to the good part. Because I was worried about my future, I started looking online a job postings and happened to call one in particular and Lady Luck smiled at me! An opening for a high school librarian will become open at the end of the school year. Yay! This is a great district and a level 5 school. I mailed my employment application today and hopefully it won't take long for an interview.
I'm not overly happy at my current job, but am content to stay on as a librarian. I love the people I work with and my students, but being close to my bf...and sister...would me a lot to me. Granted, I'll be further away from mom, but I think things will work out okay. If you pray, pray for me! If not, wish me luck! :)
