A Better Mood...and A Light Soon To Come

It has been months since I last posted. When writing my last post I found myself in a grey mood. After 18 weeks of student teaching, and a month of summer school teaching on my own I was on a high. I loved waking up in the morning to go and work with my students. The feeling I got seeing them work and succeed was amazing. All of a sudden the "high" was gone, and I found myself opening letter after letter of rejection notices from school districts I was hoping to interview in. By August, I moved back home to live with my parents in Green Bay. At this time I was still applying for teaching jobs, but as my last post stated I started looking for part- time jobs as well. Two weeks went by and I started getting phone calls from businesses telling me that they were sorry to tell me ... I was OVER QUALIFIED..... what? The one job I was qualified for I was getting rejection notices for, and the jobs that I was over qualified for I was getting rejections from. Frustration followed ......... Finally something came along.... I got a phone call from FedEx. (Yeah I know it's not a school district) What I learned from rejection after rejection was, in today's America, it is not easy to find any kind of a job. I went in for an interview and got the Package Handler position. YAY.... It wasn't much, but it was a job..... finally something that got my mind off not being able to teach.
