THE STORY: Evey year I change schools since coming here in the USA!
1st Mid/High School taught.
Other Line: "Hi, ... we'd like to interview you for a position..."
Me: "Huh? Why? I remember signing a contract for the next SY with my school..."
Other Line: "No, you were in the surplus list.."
Me: "Huh?, will it be alright if I call you right back, let me just verify with the district..."
True enough, my name was on the surplus list...
GOOD NEWS: I was placed after the interview.
2nd Mid School taught.
**I'm sorry but we will need to let you go, the district's restructuring and since you are on a visa, we can't take you in...
GOOD NEWS: I was placed after an interview with another HS (3 days after the "sorry we can't take you in anymore" story")
3rd HS taught.
**No letting you go story, but I let go, my 2nd year with them. Long Story!
GOOD NEWS: We moved.. beautiful place!
4th HS taught.
**Pink Slip (again!!!)
GOOD NEWS: New workplace..
Mmmmm... jinxed? or simply blessed?
I'd go for the later. God has his ways, He has His plans.
I love how he moved me from one school to another, and gained friends and mentors along the way.
I am real grateful for the many persons who have believed in me. African-Americans, Caucasians, who have been very willing to recommend, guide and support; and continue to do so even up to now.
It was a blessing; still a blessing; and I thank God for it!
Unto your hands O Lord, I entrust my workplace.
Thank God, this year - I'm staying in my new workplace! God is good! :)
