Guess who got a job?

That's right ME! Kind of funny that when my husband got a job I said that "we" were employed (meaning him/the family). Because now "we" really are employed! The cool thing is that we are working at the same place! And my husband can flex his schedule around mine, as I will be working part time.

Yes, as you all are suspecting, my husband got me the job ;) And mostly you would be right. Although, my qualifications certainly stand on their own. He was in a meeting with the Dean at the community college where he works, and she asked about me. He told her that I had an MA in English and had taught at community colleges before. And she said that I should get my application in asap as they might be adding some English classes yet this semester - some were pretty overloaded. So long story short, I spent all day Wednesday getting my stuff in order and emailed to the college... went in to meet with the Dean on Thursday and got hired to teach 2 classes later that day.

So now I've been spending most of my time getting ready to teach these courses. It's very last minute, which is a little nerve-wracking ;) I haven't taught in a couple of years now - not since D was born. At first I was really nervous about it and full of self-doubt - I have not been in an "academic" frame of mind for a couple of years. But once I started looking through the materials and gathering myself up - I started finding my confidence. I am just really excited about teaching again and really looking forward to the experience!
