Exciting news for me!

Finally my paperwork is done and everything is finalized, so I can finally tell you all that I HAVE A TEACHING JOB! After so long! I am so, so happy.
I now work in Chicago at a regular neighborhood high school teaching French! It's the same place that I substitute taught for about a year and half. The French teacher retired suddenly (which is what I had been waiting for, TBH) and now I am the new permanent teacher. All of the paperwork and things took about a month and I was the "long-term sub" until everything was complete.

I taught World History before in Louisiana, so this will be my first time teaching French! So, Andrew found his new awesome job and then less than a month later I got my long-awaited teaching job. It has been a good autumn for us both!

While having a real job is more time consuming, I do have some projects to show you. It gets dark at like 4:30, so I have been waiting for the weekend to take pictures.


  1. Congratulations Molly. That is great news for you!

  2. Congrats on the new teaching job!

  3. Congratulations! Good for you and your students. There is no job more enjoyable.

  4. Congratulations! Such a great time for you and the hubby. Hopefully one day I'll get a permanent teaching job too, though they are pretty hard to get here in Aus too.

    1. Substituting regularly at one school is what worked for me. And then seeing from the hiring side, the job is only posted with someone already in mind a lot of the time.

  5. Congratulations to both of you!

  6. Many, many congratulations, I have been hoping that this would work out for you I have so admired your teaching/waitressing never give up attitude. 2013 has been a good year for you both long may it continue.

  7. Congratulations! I have been thinking about trying to get qualified to teach french so I might pick your brain about how you got there sometime.


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
