What you may not know is that in addition to being a speech-language pathologist, I'm also a certified teacher of the hearing impaired. When a half-time position as a resource teacher for hearing impaired children popped up in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School District, I decided to try for it, altering my plans from hanging out at home, to possibly re-entering the world of IEPs, paychecks, and adorable children.
This change in course meant writing a resume, filling out an application, lining up references, and interviewing for the first time in 25 years.
|Nice interview outfit|
To make a long story short, I got the job. As a retiree, working half-time gives me the best of both worlds. The big perk for you is that I will now have more blog posts and new materials coming! Working with kids fuels my ideas.
Stay tuned!!!!! First teacher workday is August 21st!
