After I graduated with my Masters, I spent five months applying to jobs. I had started applying a full four months before graduation. It took over 160 applications, and ten interviews.
Today I received the wonderful, long-anticipated phone call: I will be teaching English full time at MacArthur Middle School, in Ft Meade. I am thoroughly excited, and feel that all my dreams are coming true.
First I got the girl (Rachel)
Then I got the experience of a lifetime (Oxford)
Then I got the job (MacArthur)
Next, will I get published.....
