Stop - Reset? Nope.... Off to the Fair!

It has been a while since my last post. In my defense, I've been a bit busy. I completed 16 weeks of student teaching, finished one more class I needed for my degree, and took 2 Praxis exams.

The past few months have been a challenge. After 5 years of working full time, going to school, moving to a new house, and losing a parent... I finally finished my degree. I'm happy to report I have earned my B.S. degree in elementary education with a final GPA of 3.86/4.0. (you can view my portfolio here)

I thought I'd have a little time to rest, but I was mistaken.  I was looking forward to a time of rest and reset, but it wasn't meant to be.  Soon after the end of the semester it was time to apply for my teaching license and start searching for a job. The job hunting experience led me to a web site for an out-of-state job fair. It took some work to obtain an admission ticket, but I'm scheduled to attend a job fair in Tennessee in the near future.

 I've never been to a job fair, so I'm not sure what to expect. I've printed a stack of resumes, dusted off my suit, and polished my shoes. Wish me luck - I'll report back soon.

Congratulations on completing your degree! I admire your "Stick-to-it"iveness in spite of the many challenges that you faced! Good luck at the job fair! I hope you find something in TN near the Smokies because my hubby and I love going there and means that we might get to meet someday! :)
