My life is at a really strange point right now. In a little over a month I will have my teaching credential and will embark on the journey of trying to secure a teaching job, not the easiest thing to do right now, especially here in Orange County. To be completely honest though, I’m really not worried about it. I’m definitely considering applying for jobs out of the area/state, even though the idea of moving somewhere new, completely on my own, does scare me just a little, but then on the other hand, it would be such a leap out of my comfort zone, and could be a totally fun adventure.
I’ve never lived anywhere but Orange, other than the 4 years that I spent at Biola..a whopping 20 minutes from home..so the idea of moving somewhere like Seattle, or the Bay Area, somewhere on the East Coast, or even Maui, is just a little intriguing. On the flip side, though, all of my family is here, most of my friends are here, and I’m super involved at my church, all things to consider…we’ll see what happens. There is potential for landing a teaching job nearby though..I’m applying to a Christian school in Corona (thanks for the tip Michelle!) that is actually hiring elementary teachers for next year, a rarity right now, so I’m interested to see what happens with that.
As I was reminded by someone last week, God is bigger than everything. He is beyond capable of putting me in the exact right spot to land the perfect teaching job for me, if that is part of his plan..so with that being said, I’m excited to see how the next few months play out..
