I love lip sync battles!

Paperbacks from the publishers and authors:

Well, I had an interview with a great school district at a school that is literally 5 minutes from my house. I was super hopeful. First, it is public school, so the pay is better and I would get retirement and all that good stuff. Second, I wouldn’t be spending 90 min a day in the car. Third, I wouldn’t have to listen to my boss repeatedly tell me how replacable I am (not kidding, on Monday in a meeting he said “Just because she isn’t here doesn’t mean we won’t have someone better to replace her”). He once said to all of us in a staff meeting that no one is irreplaceable. While true, its not exactly a message that makes your employees feel welcome and wanted. I got an email Saturday morning that that they decided to go with another candidate. I was crushed. There were tears. There was amazon shopping out of sadness. Now I’m just left with a heaping ton of self doubt. Because of my anxiety I am trying to come up with a plan B in case I don’t find a job. I am obsessively looking at job boards for anything I could do with a Masters degree in education. The stress and anxiety is horrible.

So, that is my super depressing week in a nutshell. Sorry for being a downer!

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!

  1. ((HUGS)) I am surprised you do not have a wealth of teaching opportunities, since Special Ed seems to always be a shortage area. Check out textbook publishers, teaching aids (such as turning point or genesis, who do the training/admin type software), some companies may nibble for training. I remember seeing distance learning too. Like, you teach via video conference. Good luck!

  2. Oh, I’m so very sorry Samantha! And no wonder you want to move – what a horrible boss! That is thoroughly abusive behaviour and I’m shocked he got away with it. As for the job you missed out on – there is probably something better in the pipeline! And I’m not just saying that – I’ve found over and over again that I’ve been crushed at ‘missing out’ on an opportunity, only to find something better along the way. Best of luck in your job search!

  3. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t get the job but I’m sure there will be other opportunities. Keep your chin up and don’t doubt yourself! Your boss sounds like a complete and utter ass so I’m not surprised that you are seeking something better. Have faith that better is waiting for you! It sounds cheesy but it is true.

  4. Hugs Samantha! But don’t lose hope! That’s maybe because there was a catch and you’ll find something even better. Thinking of you! xoxox

  5. Much love and prayers to you Samantha!!! I am so sorry that job fell through and what a HORRID boss!!! That is definitely abusive. I am hoping you find a great opportunity and soon!!!! Keep strong and I know something will happen to change your life for the better.

  6. It’s been many years since I was job searching and interviewing, but I remember how stressful it was. And how devastating when it felt like I’d found THE perfect job… only to not get it. Hopefully that means something better is on the horizon.

  7. So sorry about not getting the job! Maybe if a new job opens up there they will think of you? I hope so. At any rate, good luck on your hunt. I always hated interviews!

  8. I’m sorry you didn’t get the job, Sam. My boss is a jerk too, he thinks we are all robots with no feelings whatsoever, so I know what you mean, unfortunately it’s hard to deal with people like that on a daily basis. I hope you find a great job with a boss who appreciates you and your work, soon.
