A New Chapter
I have made the decision to begin a new chapter. Not sure where it will go, only that going backwards will be difficult to overcome. Already I can feel the negative thought seeping into my brain... telling me not to bother because I will never get anywhere but here.
I want to get away from working directly with young children. I love those little stinkers but the RA is making it hard to get up from a chair designed for a 4 yr old. Teaching and caring for little ones is the only job I know how to do. After my mother passed away I took classes for medical coding and electronic health records, even passed the certification tests for both. Applied and interviewed for several jobs in the medical field but no joy. I didn't have the experience in a medical office or customer service ( has that person ever had to tell a parent in denial that their precious child hit or bit or spit on several children in class. talk about how unwelcome news and irate parents is not customer service, I would like to see one of those interviewers handle that situation. And mentally and emotionally, i tired every day, feel useless and not appreciated. And its not just the parents, its the admin staff and co-workers.
My work hours changed for mornings to afternoons. The childcare director asked me if I would be available to sub in the mornings. I sounded very snarky when I responded, "well that's why you scheduled me for afternoons, isn't it" It went right over her head, but another teacher heard me and walked away laughing because this woman has no clue most of the time.
