Okay, here’s the scoop.
Fiance had a wonderful teaching position for 1 wonderful year. He taught World Culture, an elective and absolutely loved it since he is European and loves to study the different cultures in the world. So anyways, the school district he taught for didn’t pass their levy and because he taught an elective and SOMETHING had to be cut, it was his class and him.
So now my Fiance is unemployed and has been since June. He has put MULTIPLE applications in and has gotten some interviews, but no job.
Then he was offered a coaching position in a town about 45 minutes away. The school also had a job opening in social studies for the grade he was coaching soccer for. He had talked to the principal, superintedent, and the atheltic advisor and he said that he was afraid to take the coching job because if he didnt get the teaching job, there was no way that he could make it to practice because it started so early and because he lives 45 minutes away. They said NO PROBLEM, they’ve got it covered and for him to take the coaching position.
So literally, the ENTIRE summer we had thought that he would get this job, which looking back now was a bit dumb.
So he was called in last week for an interview, they said they’d let him know and 4 days later got a letter of regret in the mail. So now Fiance is so down in the dumps I have no idea what to do. I know he’s stressed because he’s a stress eater nad is eating boxes of Oreos in one sitting…
So then in another city, the city I live in now (we live a half hour apart) they are hiring for a Computer Science teacher. No, Fiance is not certified in that, but when he called today the guy said that it’s okay because he can teach AND go to school to get the certification online since he is already a certified teacher. They guy told him to apply because they didn’t get many applications.
My Fiance is a huge computer nerd so this would be perfect for him! Since he found this out today, he’s a totally different person! I hope to anything he gets this job but I’m afraid if he doesn’t, it’s going to be even worse!
And I know he’s stressing about money. I’m in my last year of school and I only work 25 hours a week as a preschool teacher so I know it’s not the best. And he and his family own property everywhere, literally so I know that we could always live in one of thier houses rent free, but still. I think he’e feeling like he can’t provide for me and I HATE that he feels like that.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?!
