We're employeed!

DW and I got our letters in the mail for next year. I've mentioned before that we worked last year for "the Region". There were 10 regions across the city, but that level between chancellor and teacher has been dissolved, along with all the jobs that went with it. Ours included.

I'm happy to say that we've been offered new Department of Ed jobs. The description of "Instructional Technology Specialist" is open to say the least (pdf for the interested), but it is a job. The nice part is that DW and I will be working together for the first time in 3 years. (We met working at the same school.)

Prayers having been answered and a load of our collective consciences, this is good news. The shapelessness of this new position will cause its fair share of stress. At least we don't have to worry about that for a few more weeks.

OK, who wrote this job description? I stopped reading after the 4th bullet under "Selection Criteria" had a misspelled word!

Alas, congrats are in order!

Not I! :)

Thanks for the congrats, Mary Alice!
Unfortunately, it's not likely that I will bring the skill of "spell checking" to the job. Too bad they don't have software that can check for those type of errors... ;)
