Low spend and career update

February 7th, 2016 at 07:33 am

I'm one week into my low-spend month, and I haven't dipped into Rainy Day funds to pay any expenses that have popped up. I'm building up my Rainy Day fund by covering those expenses from my "spending" category this month.

Already my additional schooling is paying off. I've been approached by admin to take over a specialist's position in the building during her maternity leave! They are very confident I can do the job, more confident than I am at this point! In fact, they confided that the specialist is choosing not to return to that position next year and they would like me to consider taking the position permanently.

I take it as a huge compliment that they want me for this position. I will accept it for the remainder of this year, but not make any decisions for next year just yet. It will be excellent experience for me as I will be eligible to sit for the board in December and the more experience I have in the field, the better. Once I pass the board, though, and finish that school year I will most likely not return to teaching. As much as I love teaching, I can make a lot more money outside of public school once I become board certified.

    Awesome job! What sort of specialist position? And wow. I'm impressed that the specialist told them she wasn't coming back now.

    That sounds great!

    The specialist will be coming back, just to a classroom of her own and not in her previous role. She wants something less intensive with a new baby added to her family. It is a behavior specialist position Smile
