A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.~Henry Adams
In my last update, I shared how I was getting set up to be a substitute teacher. I haven’t written much lately because there’s been much going on in physical life. I think it’s OK to share the changes now…
Becoming a substitute teacher fell through… Because I landed a full time teaching position, in art!
I was having trouble getting the agency who handles substitute teachers to proceed with my application… No one would return my calls, they lost my transcripts and basically every roadblock that could appear did.
I woke up earlier this week and decided to check the job board for open teaching positions. There was a new one posted for an art teacher, so I called to get an email to send my resume.
I was asked to come in that day to interview so off I went. After a short interview I was offered the position on the spot!
The position is with a special program to help children who have been held back multiple times to graduate on time. The administrators feel art is a great way to reach these children.
I’m excited that I was chosen to be involved with helping these children figure out what they want from life…
Scary Times Ahead
School starts tomorrow but I won’t be in the classroom immediately… I’ll be doing all the necessary paperwork and other stuff that needs to be done before I can get into the classroom.
I’ll be starting in a few days though, It’s exciting but scary. Learning how to teach is something I’ll learn about as I do it… Things will work out though.
It’s strange how life works. In the course of one day I went from feeling lost and without options to getting my dream job. All the weeks I spent worrying about the future did nothing good…
Life happens whether we worry or not. I forgot the basic idea that the universe will align for us… I couldn’t know that this opportunity was going to happen, but I also didn’t know it wouldn’t happen.
Put out your intentions and expect your desires to manifest. It really does work… I just forgot it did, for a while…
I’ll continue to work on this blog and develop my desires beyond work. Doug still has a lot to say. I’m grateful for everyone who’s followed along over this past year. I hope you”ll stick around for the new Doug adventures…
