Well, I had a very promising interview this morning. The position is as an educational assistant, working with a gifted child who also has some learning disabilities. The hours are good, the pay is decent, and I'd be home by 4:00 pm. The job starts next week so that the student would get used to his new aide and continue once a week in the summer. I've missed being in the classroom and even though this isn't teaching an entire class, it'll be a new experience for me without the 60-hour work week. So wish me luck, everyone.
- Delta, British Columbia, Canada
- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
