One Door Closing, Another Opening

May 26th, 2016 at 04:40 pm

The school year ends next week and so will my long term subbing. It was stressful, but I enjoyed most of the students overall. It was also interesting teaching my own son, a unique experience we will always remember. Fortunately, that part worked out very well. He is bright, even brighter than I thought! Next year, I will do some day to day subbing, but I have no interest in being a full time teacher.

On the other side, I had my six month evaluation for editing the other day. I was asked if I wanted a second position. I will be doing some administrative work (from home as an independent contractor). This should net me another $500 per month. I never would have dreamt years ago how many doors mystery shopping would open for me.

I am definitely looking forward to my two vacations this summer! Luckily, all that extra money I brought in teaching has allowed me to justify these trips. I also paid off a car, a credit card, and saved a $1000 (so far).

I hope you all have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
