I applied for a 5th grade maternity leave position in the school in my town (my #1 choice) and this morning I got a call for an interview! The principal called me this morning and asked me to come in today at 11:30. I went in, and after just three questions she offered it to me! It is a leave position from Sept-January!
Ironically, this is the same position that DH held at the end of the school year. It is a maternity leave position. The lady had her baby early May and Dennis worked for her April 30-June 20. Now I'll be working for her until she returns! The principal liked him so much that she assumed I would be great for the job!
I am sooooo happy, but sad too. I'm sad because now this means I need to be away from my baby girl 5 days a week, 7.5 hours a day. My mom will be with her so it won't be so bad. But I'm going to miss her so much. Plus, I already committed to teaching an online college class so that more time I'll have to be away from her. At least that's online and I'll be able to do the work while I'm home but it will still be time that I can't hold her or bond with her.
I always said that if I got offered a teaching job in the fall, I'd take it, but I guess I didn't think it would really happen. Wow, I never knew such a great thing could be so hard as well. Being a mother such is difficult.
