Step 1:  Go to the school and ask about volunteer opportunities

Step 2:  Agree to run an after-school activity called “Seuss after School”, where you will present a Dr. Seuss book and design related activites around it for 18 children in grades 1 and 2.

Step 3:  Send an email to the principal detailing what you will do for the after-school activity and giving a brief run-down of your qualifications for this, mainly the fact that you have a teaching certificate.

Step 4:  Recieve an urgent string of emails from the principal inquiring about this teaching certificate and  your willingness to help in the school.

Step 5:  Meet with the principal for 20 minutes regarding overcrowding in the second grade and the need for an assistant until the new teacher starts at the end of September.

Step 6:  Become the new Assistant 2nd Grade Teacher.

I start on Monday.

    Didn’t we just have a conversation about this, Stacy? I’m thrilled for you and know this is what you are meant to be doing – Your teaching skills are too fine to remain dormant for long. I have to laugh, though……sure you’re going to wait for a while.
