weird change of direction

My mom called me & said the English teacher at my high school quit suddenly, so they are in need of an English teacher. So I scoured Facebook to see if I knew of any English teacher that needed a job. There was only 1 and he's not the brightest crayon in the box, so I wouldn't recommend him. So I told my mom that if I didn't need a certification, I'd at least consider doing it. I mean, I have the training to be a teacher, just not the certificate. She was on the phone with the school secretary as we were speaking, & AK said there was a provisional thing they could do. I think that means that if they are desperate enough, they could hire a person without a certificate as long as they were working towards it. The superintendent is out of town until Thursday, so I won't even know if they would consider that for a few days. I'll keep you updated. But how weird would that be to go from staying at home with Moose to teaching at my old high school - a place I said I'd never teach. Moose would be the biggest obstacle. If I needed to teach, I could and I could take him to daycare. Problem is, I know my mom would want to watch him. I don't know if she could be as strict about him as I would be (meaning, don't feed him cookies & sugar & crap) and she couldn't smoke around him...even outside. I would not allow that. So I don't know. Maybe Big A could be a stay-at-home dad! Who knows, there is probably someone way more qualified (you know, with a certificate) they'll get. UNK is 15 miles away, how could they not have a recent grad looking to teach? But it's a thought.

Tough decision, I hated putting my kids in daycare and in fact daycare in my life didn't last long. I was way too tired to be the type of mom I wanted to be when I worked full time. I agree, you can't have your mom smoking around him.
Again, tough decision!
