I've been looking for a job lately. Applied for a dispatcher position at the sheriff's office; today I heard about and applied for the job I'd really like to have. It is as a para educator for Special Education in the local school district. I know I will be the most qualified candidate (I taught for over 30 years; have a BS and a master's degree; haven't done SPED but have done Title I- not the same but similar). They sometimes hire people with only a high school diploma or a GED. I'm just hoping they don't think I'm too old or that I'm OVER qualified and give it to somebody else. The head cheese is away for the weekend so they said the soonest I'd hear something is in about a week. I'd appreciate any good vibes you can send my way. On another note, my mother is still critical but still here. I wish she could just go and be at peace. Fingers crossed there too.
