Frustration

Monday, July 08, 2013

I have spent the last five years in college, after only having earned my GED in 2001. A lot happened before, during, and after that time but that is not what I am frustrated about. Between late April and late May I took, and passed, three teaching exams, costing over $500. I have been on numerous job interviews with no success as of yet. I understand that my degree is not in teaching and I have no prior teaching experience; however, I have been an ESE paraprofessional for four years and a substitute teacher before that. I know I am capable of teaching effectively, and I am already studying all the new up and coming changes to classroom assessments and know all about the new technologies. I have determination like nobody's business and I would think the fact that I worked two full time jobs while being a full time student would prove that. I am determined to continue interviewing and I know it will happen when the time is right but I needed somewhere to vent. Thank you Sparkpeople for giving me that venue.

    Until that full time teaching gig comes through, try a tutoring center. It may be part time, it may be full time, but it's experience teaching.
    Keep moving forward. It will work out for you.

    Lots of places you can be a teacher if you aren't licensed. Try private corporations abs universities. I teach at an insurance company and love m job most days!

    At least you are ready when the door opens and you can go in. Have you thought about joining the Navy? My husband is retired Navy and there are a lot of good jobs in the Navy to 'teach" so that can be an asset. Think about it or the Coast Guard. Try Plan B if need be.
