I actually got a few things reviewed this week!
- Shenanigans by Sarina Bowen
Ok, so I took the School Psychology Praxis Exam (required to get your license and national certification) and I PASSED! I’m so relieved. That is at least 1 thing off my plate.
Now, next is finding a job. I have one option but there are pros and cons. So, help me!
Pros: they will pay me for my internship (not everywhere does) and I can have health insurance (again, not always guaranteed), they have someone who agreed to be my site supervisor (another difficult thing to get people to agree to because they are so overworked), I know 2 teachers at this school so I wouldn’t be totally alone
Cons: Its a 1 hr drive.
Honestly, gas prices suck right now, but I am still inclined to take this offer. After my internship is over at the end of the school year 2023, I could request a different site. I would be employed by the Southern Ohio ESC, so they have LOTS of schools they service. But, everyone FREAKS when I mention it is a 65-70 min drive. That is making me super nervous. Honestly, I don’t think its a big deal-I have a reliable car and my husband is a mechanic.
I had a TOTAL breakdown on Wednesday at work. It is just all too much. Taking 5 college classes, teaching in this disaster of a school year, trying to find a job, not having any personal time, etc. It was just too much and I broke down. Thankfully, we are off for a quasi spring break (Thursday, Friday, and Monday off). I think, going forward, I am going to start using my sick days more frequently. I have plenty and I genuinely fear I will not make it to the end of the school year if I don’t do something. I need to have time to focus on 1 thing at a time and taking some sick days are the only way I can accomplish that.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
