So everything got done in time: certification was re-instated applied for the position, and had two interviews with the principal and then the vice principal.....3 or 4 people applied. I didn't get the job, and honestly I am relieved. As much as I love teaching art, I wasn't sure I was ready for the stress of 30 or more students all at once!
I am happily back in my studio painting to my hearts content! I will start some after school drawing and painting classes soon, with 10 or so students at a time. very nice!
