Even though I was 21 years old, I am living with my parents and still under their roof and their influence. I didn't think a thing of it when my mom offered to go with me to Kansas City for the interview. After all, I had no car yet and she did! Really, I was happy for the company.
We get a motel near where the NKC admin building was. Mom did stay there while I went to my interview! I got a job offer contingent on my actually graduating that summer. Looking back, they must have been hard up for teachers because as you know, I hadn't even done my student teaching yet! Or art was just one of those fluff subjects in their minds so it didn't really matter who taught it!
Summer continues....I graduate....I'm back home now, waiting for my final contract from NKC which was sent once they got my records that I had graduated. So exciting!! And here it comes! When I open it up, I also have my teaching assignment. I am going to be teaching seventh grade ART at a brand-spanking new school in North Kansas City, Missouri!
