It's been a wee bit quiet around these parts lately. If you can believe it…we are moving, again! I know, I know, it's all we ever do!
Friday afternoon, after I got home from work, I received a call from Beaver Island (the school I taught at last year) and they wanted me to come back to teach 1st-3rd grade. Earlier in the week they had a teacher resign. With my resignation earlier this summer and the recent resignation of another teacher they were left with only one elementary teacher. I spent the weekend thinking it over and weighing my options, but eventually I accepted. I haven't found an actual teaching job in southern Michigan yet, and while I like my office job it just isn't the same as being in the classroom. Cody and I both had to let our jobs know today that we wouldn't be back. He got offered a job at the school too. See, it's just too good of an offer to pass up.
So, we are trucking up to the island for inservice training for a couple of days this week. I expect we will be back late on Thursday and will spend the next couple of days packing our stuff back up. There are a few things that I am pretty excited about when I think about moving back to the island. First, I love my teaching job there. My days are NEVER boring when teaching 3+ grade levels. Second, I miss the safety and small-town-feel that the island is always oozing. I like leaving my keys in my car. I like waving to every person I pass on the road. It's just a unique place. I know it's not for everyone, but it works for us and we are going back.
Your turn…Have you ever retuned to an old job? Why?
