So much has happened since we left Honduras on Sunday, so I'm going to try to make this a brief catch-up post. Here you go:
|I pictured something more like this....|
|I wore similar pieces to my interview...|
But I'd have LOVED that red bag!
My interview was at a school that initially scared me, but later inspired me. It is in a poor, transient community, in which I saw no white people before entering the school. The top languages spoken are Spanish and Creole, and 100% of the students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. That's a Title I school if I've ever seen one. They also have bilingual and ESOL sheltered classes. It's a very neat place. I left with positive comments about my interviewing skills and a promising request not to accept any other job offers before hearing back from them.
But then I heard back from a school I deemed my "dream school." The principal let me know that a fourth grade position would be posted soon and that I should apply! Awesome, right?? Only downside... it's not in Orlando, where Daniel can potentially find employment. It's in the Sebastian/Vero area (actually called Fellsmere), where we have yet to find anything that Daniel could do. Why, oh why?? I applied anyways, and will interview anyways, and will pray pray pray that God directs us to the right place.
