Fiancee S. got some great news this morning.
As I mentioned a while ago, Fiancee S. was going to be laid off from her current position as a 5th grade teacher because her school is reducing the number of classes per grade, and, she has very little seniority. The layoff was not unexpected given the way events had transpired during the last year, but, was still unwelcome. It represented another big change in twelve month period full of major changes (moving in together, getting married, and now, changing jobs.) It also lent a degree of uncertainty to the start of our married life because we weren't sure how receptive the job market would be.
Well, the job market proved very receptive. Fiancee S. went to a job fair about 10 days ago. Within the following seven days, she had two job interviews with schools and one interview lined up for early April. This morning she got a job offer to become the Computer Teacher/Technology Coordinator at a school not too far to the south of us. She will most likely accept.
We're both thrilled with the prospect for a number of reasons. First off, she knows where she will be working after we get back from our honeymoon and we will be able to enjoy that to its fullest. Next, her graduate degree is a Master's in Education with an emphasis in Educational Technology; she will finally be able to use this training to its fullest extent. Finally, this position represents the chance to acquire additional practical skills (technology planning, system administration) that will only make her more interesting to other employers down the road.
Contratulations Fiancee S.!!!!!
