Here is where my story began...
I was working for an independent studies program as a summer school teacher, and I was unhappy. It wasn't teaching... but it was a job. Somehow... all of my students dropped or failed and I was left with 7, out of my original 45 students. My coworkers would take over my case load, and I was just see the 7 students when they can in, really dumb right? On the day this happened I told two of my coworkers, I believe this happened because I won't be here longer (super spiritual right LOL). They laughed at me... But I really felt it. They knew my credential was not posted, I needed to take one more test, and I had only been on two interviews. Didn't look like I had any potential. That day which was a Friday, I got a call from Hardy Brown, scheduling me for an interview. This is how my God works! That Monday I went to the interview and had to wait... I hate waiting. But I kept seeing this lady who looked so familiar walk by. Comes to find out she is interviewing me! We walk into the room and I ask... Did you ever live in Sacramento? Puzzled she looks at me and says, "Yes, I still do!" I ask, "Did you every do a seminar on Hurley and Howe, right by an Italian Restaurant about 6 years ago?" Now I have her really confused LOL... She says,"Yes, for our credential program!" I say, "I was there you wore a white dress with silver stilettos." She was shocked and lost for words. She began to go outside the office to tell people. The crazy thing is I have a horrid memory! Throughout my interview she kept saying this can't be a coincidence, there is something about you, you have this presence... I have to give you this job! Well as a formality I had to come back the next day for a demo lesson, which did not go as well as I thought it would. Little did I know they were just putting their game faces on! They kept having me wait outside and called me back in, finally they asked what would I do if people came to be with gossip. I said, "I know I am not supposed to say this but I am a Christian, and I do not say this lightly. I try to carry myself in a way to define that word in my actions. My pastor preaches against gossip and I hold that to every aspect of my life." She counters with, "I have fired Christians." Then she sends me outside. I sit there like great you didn't get the job! They call me back in and offer me the job!
And this is where teacher boot camp begins...
