I'm a newly minted job seeker.
« on: March 19, 2010, 10:56:46 AM »
Well, the time for spring contracts has come, and I have, for reasons I won't disclose on the Internet, decided to decline a contract for next year with my current district. There are several prospects in neighbouring districts, and I've been applying to most of them. As interviews start very soon, I will need to quickly make a good decision about where I need to work; most districts around here have their faculty hired by early April.

Lord have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy. Mr. Y., I believe you are an incredibly gifted teacher. I am sure you will find what you are looking for, and those who haven't or won't hire you will miss a wonderful oportunity. Too bad for them.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
