The English Teacher

Every week, it seems that another classmate has found herself a nice job for this fall.  I can't help feeling sad and a bit unwanted.  If I were going to interviews and not getting offers, then that would be one thing.  However, I'm sending out resumes and filling out applications, but all to no avail.  This makes me feel like an undesirable candidate.  I may be egotistical and arrogant, but I pride myself on being pretty objective when it comes to my abilities.  I know I'm not the best teacher in the world, but I think I'm pretty decent.  Furthermore, I'm pretty smart and I'll be graduating with a Masters degree from an awesome grad program this August.  So why aren't I getting any interviews?  (Is it because I whine too much?)

But, the most unlikely thing happened a week or so ago.  I received a call from a school district in Maryland and I will be interviewing with them in a couple of weeks!  Although I would like to stay here, the options seem to be running out. 

If my best chance lies in another state, then that's where I will go.  Besides, as sad as this may sound, I'm single and unattached.  If I want to try out new things, now is the time to do so.  Besides, if I end up not getting a teaching job, I guess I can always do the other thing that I wanted to do: write screenplays.

I'm not an English teacher, yet, but I hope to be one by this fall.  Wish me luck.
