Yay!! The levy passed in the district I work in. This gives so much hope for next year. I really hope that a few open positions become available and I will be given one of them. The levy passing was just one step in the right direction. Issue 2 (Senate Bill 5) also didn't pass so that's an added bonus. I have so much positivity about the future of my career now.
I have been trying to teach full time for 5 years. I have had little tastes of it here and there as I long-termed subbed a couple times, but never anything continuing. It is time to move forward and do what I love to do permanently.
