Whew. I did it!! I successfully applied for substitute teaching jobs in our area after sifting through job applications that were foreign to me! I am a dinosaur in the teaching profession and it was hard, embarrassing, and humbling. I had no idea what a Master Teacher was or if I was "Highly Qualified" to teach a subject. I have the old school type 3 certificate that really doesn't even exist anymore. Sigh. Now I have to gather materials and wait to see if anyone thinks that I am employable.
One more step towards solving the "I've been home for the past 10 years of my life being a Mom and now my kids are going to all be in school so what do I do now" dilemma.
