Signed, Sealed, Delivered

In case you missed all the excitement last Saturday, my school district offered an incentive if you took early resignation or retirement because of the impending budget crisis.

So, I stood in line in front of this building at 6:15 am to I turn in my early resignation.

I ended up being number #232.

I found out this Wednesday that all my paperwork went through, and I was approved for the incentive and to resign. I do have to finish the school year, but that’s almost over. I have been a Deaf Ed teacher for 8 years, so this will be a change for me.

Now, I am going to work part-time from home for the adoption ministry we are involved in doing communication, social media, and various projects. I was also enrolled in graduate school at UNT in the Fall of 2010, but I deferred for a year when I found out we were expecting. In theory, I should reenroll for Fall 2011 which I do want to do while my scores and application are still current. I will just have to see how the two kids, part-time job, and part-time grad school works out. Grad school could get the ax.

Overall, the work offer was perfect timing for Scott and I who had had time to get our ducks in a row and know that we could take this step. Next year should be interesting. But God has already brought us this far, so I’m sure we will survive. 🙂

  1. WOW! I didn’t know you took the incentive. Good for you. Not only are you trusting in God, but you may be saving someone else from losing their position. Good for you!

  2. Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
    I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and posting
    comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
