I got a nibble on an application I sent in to a local community college a few weeks ago, and I went to the campus to meet with the department head this morning. I came out of the meeting with three composition courses to teach.
While the courses are nothing exciting (they’re standard college comp classes; writing process and 5 standard essays per class), I’m excited about getting back into the classroom. I’m still looking to expand my professional horizons beyond education – in fact, I have an interview with a grass-roots organizing committee this afternoon, which I’m hoping will yield some opportunities – but I’m really welcoming this offer. I want to keep at least one toe in the education pool, and I was beginning to worry that I’d been out of it too long to get back in.
So! Mrs. Chili is no longer unemployed (or, at least, she won’t be once the paperwork gets filed)! PHEW!
