I know I've been an awful blogger lately, so sorry!!  Last week a lot of co-workers (including myself) found out that we won't have a contract for next school year.  Our district said that it's possible jobs will "become available" over the summer, but we should definitely look into other districts.  I'm trying to not stress since it's something that I can't control.  I'm also trying to stay positive!  At least I'm able to apply to any other jobs, right?  Now I'm just waiting anxiously for jobs to post!  I'm very thankful to have an amazing principal who is really pulling for me.  He already has called two other districts in our area to get my name out there.  So thankful for him!

As far as my health issues, I haven't really gotten any answers but my blood pressure is back to normal with some new medication I'm taking!  As much as I don't like taking pills, it's nice to know that one (low-dose) pill a day can control my hypertension!  I got an ultrasound of my kidneys ($$$$) and also an echocardiogram (ultrasound of my heart).  The kidney scan was normal (yay!), but I don't have the results of the echo yet....thinking positive thoughts.  No news is good news, right?!

Other than that, no news around here.  We have 3 weeks of school left and I have a feeling they're going to go quickly!  It will be a bittersweet end to my first year since I may be saying goodbye to my students and co-workers for good.

i'm sorry to hear about the lack of contract for the following year. it is a tough time to be a teacher. I have been applying fir jobs since I graduated in December. However, there is not a single job to apply for in the are where my husband and I are living now. So we are both in search of a job in different cities.

With one year of awesome teaching under your belt I am sure things will work out! Praying for you!

It's definitely tough being a teacher right now...but I'm sure with your positive thinking and great energy you will have a new job to look forward to soon. Good thoughts and prayers are being sent your way! {Hugs}

Sorry to hear about your job. The same thing happened to me last year. Job searching is not fun, but I'm at a new school now that I like even better than my old one! Good luck.

I thought this sort of thing was only happening in Texas! My thoughts are with you!
