I have more about my new job

Before I get into the newest, let me go back for those who don’t know. I have been a teacher’s aid for 4 years for special needs students, but without benefits. This year, I applied for a job with the same employer, that has benefits, but I would be in a new building and with a new teacher. So, out of the 8 students, I know 6 of them, which means it will be easier for the students and myself being in a new building. Yesterday I met the teacher and the 2 students I didn’t know and I got to see my room. The principal of that building came in and recognized me from when I worked in his building for 4 weeks before covid shut everything down. He said the same thing the program’s principal said, “that I would be a good match with this teacher” But that isn’t all. I saw my room. It not only has a bathroom, but it has many cabinets for storage and it is located right next to the parking lot. So no walking forever to get to my room, especially if I have something big, like a desk chair, to bring from my car to the room. There is also a room right across the hall with a fridge and microwave. This is great because sometimes my lunches need refrigeration and heated up. Even though school doesn’t start until the 17th, as a contracted aid, my first day is the 15th at the programs building, then I go in on the 16th to my building. Next week the teacher and I are going to move her things into the room, so until then, have great day. @DaddyEvil

@RebeccasFarm It's good, he got me in Friday and his comment was, "I have no idea why you couldn't get in"

Oh, you have no idea, It was rocky at first, getting to know the teacher and other aids, but it looks like we are getting it together and I don't count down to the weekend anymore. lol However, I had other things going on, so I couldn't be active here like i thought, but I still hope to be here more often.

@Carmelanirel2 Starting a new job is always stressful and you and your hubby had to "get used to" you being gone all day, too. You'll get things sorted so you can be on myLot sometimes, too.

Congratulations. I know it's a challenging job. Glad to know that you will have the benefits. I always wanted to be a teacher but I never could as my parents wanted me to become something else.
