I mentioned in a previous post that this has been a tough week. This was the first week of school for most schools in upstate New York. Despite sending applications out to dozens of schools and interviewing at a healthy handful, I still don’t have a job as a school counselor. I wrote about it last year and doubt that I could say it better than I did then.
Many things have changed in the past year. We’ve been living in our house for almost a full year. Bitsy is walking, talking and being a toddler. I had the privilege to work for a short-term maternity leave at a local high school in May and June. Chris’ schedule has changed and he now has a semi-normal schedule. I am now home with Bitsy full-time until I get a full-time job. I am hopeful that something will come along. Last year at this time, I hadn’t even had any interviews. This year, I have had a few. I’m hoping that the tide is turning and something will come along soon.
