Hey. Sorry for my absence this past week; but when you're a job hunting, newly minted teacher, the window of opportunity is narrow. I was told by a very pleasant woman whom I called for information, that there are as many as a hundred applicants for many positions. I confessed that I really would not like to have her job, and she just sighed.
So as you might guess, after seven years of school work with a 3.9 GPA, and many years of tutoring reading and English - I feel a bit lost. A killer resume and lots of job apps have not even netted me an interview.
Maybe I can wear my degrees and credential, printed on a t-shirt when I work at Walmart.
Any suggestions for fighting the depression that sets in when you finally succeed and accomplish your greatest goals, only to have the world desert you?
I found a great site with some wonderful depression era artwork. It's called the Depression Art Gallery and this picture is from that site.
I bet you can't guess the name of this picture.
It's No Work, by Blanche Grambs (1935), and seems to say it all.
