And that's how it is at my current school.
I've told Ironman more than once, "if that's how the administration likes things to run, then that's fine. But it's just not for me. I have too much training, experience and expertise to settle for mediocracy."
So I have been working on my resume. I had a working resume from several years ago. Therefore I don't have to start from scratch. I'm just tweaking it, polishing it, etc.
Every once in a while I get a flash in the back of my head, "What if it's not greener on the other side" Go away Mr. Doubt. I'm not especially looking for greener, I'm looking for a better fit. My plan is to have my resume complete and spiffy by tomorrow evening. Tuesday afternoon I am going to drop it by several schools. I hope they file it away and actually remember it when hiring season comes. In fact, after spring break I am going to mail my resume again to the same schools with a cover letter explaining that I'm still interested. I haven't seen an announcement of a spring job fair but if they have one, I will be the first one in line. I am looking forward to it.
Public schools offer more money and better benefits. I would be thrilled with both.
It's not all doom and gloom in America's schools. Teachers aren't there for the money. I could make more money cleaning hotel rooms. (I said that recently and Ironman said he did NOT want me taking a job at a hotel. I did entertain a house cleaning business, though, as I enjoy cleaning and organizing.)
I will let you know.
Saturday was my weigh and measure day. As you recall I began P90 workouts in December before Christmas. That's right. I did not wait until after the holidays. That's how determined I was. Every Saturday I weigh and measure. Do you want to know the stats?
Weight: I've lost 7 pounds. Hey, I'll take it!
Inches: 17 1/2. YES SEVENTEEN AND A HALF!! I've lost 6 inches across the middle.
I've lost 1 1/2 inches in each thigh. I've lost 1 1/2 inches in each KNEE. Isn't that wild? My knees have gotten thinner and shapelier. Yes, MY KNEES! Ha Let's keep going. I've lost 3 inches in my waist, 2 inches in my hips, 2 inches in my chest, and 3/4 inch in each calf. My arms have stayed the same which surprises me but let me tell you this, they are firm. I see definition and muscles that make them look like somebody else's arms! Today is Day 43 (I think. I don't have the calendar right here) I just know that I'm right at the half way point. I'm not stopping now. I have to see how far I can go!
