When you know that you should say “no” to something, it’s best to just say “NO!”, no matter how guilty you feel for doing it.
Just five weeks into the school year, my job is not working out for my family. The boys haven’t been sleeping, so my sister started watching them. Then, she got a job. So I spoke to the principal today to let her know that I will not be able to finish out the school year at BCS.
SO that means that they are looking for a replacement, and I will continue to teach until they find one. The job is 12-1:40 each day; two classes. It is a dream job. The kids are extremely bright and well-behaved. The staff at the school is fantastic, and the atmosphere is positive and supportive. You don’t need to be certified to teach, but you do need to be a Christian that agrees with the statement of faith, which can be found here: http://www.birchwoodchristianschool.org/site/about_whatwebelieve.php
If you or anyone you know is in or moving to Alaska (the school is just 15 minutes from the military bases in Anchorage), speaks Spanish, and might be interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am confident that God is telling me to quit, so I am confident that He will bring a replacement. I’m just hoping it is soon!
