In an effort to create more personal content, I’ve been meaning to participate in the 31 Day Blog Challenge being held over at Fabulous Finds by Tiffany. As a fellow Noise Girl, I love her site and I think this is a great idea. I’ve just been too busy to sit down and write a good post for the challenge until now. I guess one day is better than none at all, right? Today’s theme is your dream job. I figure that’s an easy enough one for me to write about. So, any guess what my dream job would be???
My Dream Job
If you guessed teacher, you’d be correct. However, it’s more than that (hey, if I’m going to dream…). My dream job for now would probably be a high school special education teacher in either the county I live in or the county to the right of it. I guess that’s pretty specific, but let me explain it. I’m sure the high school part is pretty surprising since I have the PK-6 endorsement and I’m currently long-term subbing at a primary school. However, my long-term placement in the fall was at a high school. It was then that I was able to see the big differences between the two. I wish that the students were more independent and I hate all of the germs I come into contact with. So, I think I would like the scheduling of high school in comparison. Also, I could fulfill my grants my being in special ed and get more in loan forgiveness for it. I just happen to enjoy it more.
Additionally, I don’t want to move out just yet. I’m waiting on my boyfriend to finish college. So, if I could find a position where I can continue living with my mom, that would be ideal. Additionally, I’ve discovered just how much less that county I’m subbing in pays in comparison to the county I live in (and had been subbing in prior to this). So, I would love to make more money by working in these other two counties. Plus, we’ve had some snow recently and I had to go work because this county didn’t get as much snow. So, I would like to work in a county that I live in for travel purposes.
Granted, my dream job could change in the future. I may want to move away in the future or my desired grade level could change. However, this is what I think I would like right now. You can check out everyone else’s dream job on Fabulous Finds blog today (as well as participate in the challenge).
