Last time I was here, I had decided that I want to become a teacher. I've continued to ponder and look into this over the past month and a half. I think I've come to one certain conclusion. I do not want to be a music teacher. I love music, but I don't think I'm passionate enough or confident enough to teach it. I feel like I've forgotten at least half of what I learned, and even when I was learning it, I never had the drive that some of my friends had. I like music. I like singing. I just don't think I want to teach it. Perhaps on a small scale level like having another children's handbell choir someday or something like that, but I don't want to be a school music teacher. Maybe I'll change my mind some day. You never can tell. I just know it's not what I want right now.
I do still think I'd like to be an elementary school teacher, but right now most of the schools around here are only hiring internally. I'm not saying I'll never do it, but I'm not counting on being able to get myself certified anytime soon and being able to get a job right away. I need a job. I'm 30 years old, and I need to be supporting myself. I'm very thankful for everything my parents do for me, but I'm not a child. I'm capable of working, and I need to do something now.
So, I'm excited to say that today I actually have an interview! A local Christian preschool is looking for a resource coordinator. From what I understand, it sounds like the director needs a "second in command." The preschool is apparently growing a lot, and she is swamped with work. The idea of still working with children, but not being directly in the classroom with them is very appealing to me. I have a lot of experience with preschool, and I feel like this is a position I could be good at and enjoy. I'm not %100 sure I'll get the job, but it's nice knowing that I'm going in with at least a good chance. I'm a little nervous about the interview, but I'm going to just do the best that I can do and hope she likes me. If not, well, I know God will have something else for me.
