I got a job!!!! I'm the new Director of Education at Sylvan Learning Center!! I actually started almost 2 weeks ago. Sylvan is a private tutoring company with branches in cities all over the country. During the day I give assessments to students and will be meeting with parents about the progress of their kids. Then from 4-8 every day we have a building full of teachers and students for tutoring. It's great because I still get to work with kids but am not in around them constantly. There's a LOT to learn but I've enjoyed it so far!
I can't tell you how relieved I am that everything worked out! I really really wanted this job. I actually had to go in for about 4 or 5 interviews and the process took over 2 weeks from the first interview til I found out I got the job… and then started the very next morning. It was an emotional roller coaster to say the least.
The main downside that I've found is that I'm pretty much busy from the time I go in to work until the moment I leave so I don't get a lot of blog updating time like I did when I was teaching (who actually uses their planning period for planning anyhow?!).
Hope everyone has a nice and relaxing Labor Day. I'll just be working as if it's any other Monday. But hey, at least I can finally start shopping and decorating again! Hallelujah!!!
