On a more professional note, I think my old high school is trying to get in touch with me to hire me for a "substitute" teaching job. I emphasize substitute since in reality they're looking for a now to end of year type deal. I think I'm going to decline though, since I'm still dealing with a lot of AmeriCorps stuff, talking with a couple different locations. (Chicago, Springfield, MO, and Columbus, OH) The Chicago one is doubtful, as it was about a 10 minute conversation, and it sounds like they're really looking for a networking person, and while I can set up a LAN, I don't know anything about security and larger scale networks. The Springfield one I have to email the guy back about. The position is a after school co-ordinator for a computer lab. The guy had this in his email.
> You sound very much like one of my twin sons who were born in 3/79. They are both in graduate school. One in Indianapolis and one in Columbia,
MO. I have 4 good applications that I'm looking at.
Now I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I assume he likes his sons, and that it's a compliment, but you never know. I do appreciate his honesty though, and telling me how many applicants there are.
The Columbus one (TechCorps) had me psyched as I had like a 1.5 hour phone interview with them, and it's a management type position, where you have to organize volunteers to train students and educators on uses of technology. They then sent me this article they wanted me to summarize, and had me send in some writing/creativity samples for written communication skills.
Ah well, who knows . . . if it happens, it happens, but I guess I'm expecting something to happen since I am turning down the "substitute" job.
