I am at work on my lunch break so I have to keep this very brief. I'm not on the cloud 9 of last Thursday's "update", but I'm ok.
My interview on Friday went well but I was passed over for the job in favor of someone with more elementary experience. I was really bummed but the principal was encouraging. She said I had the right qualifications for a coaching job and that I did a good job on my interview. She encouraged me to keep applying for similar positions because she said I would do a great job. In that spirit, I did submit an application for an instructional coach job at the middle school so maybe I'll have another interview soon. In the meantime, I am trying to resign myself to sticking with what I am doing. One of my favorite authors (Marion Zimmer Bradley) always writes in her books, "The world will go as it will and not as you and I would have it."
So I suppose in this short narrative there are both ups, downs and something in between. Today I am grateful for what I do have.
