Crossing Everyingthing I Can!

I am praying and crossing whatever I have to cross! I called my friend and former supervisor who told me that the Armenian School was looking or counseling support. Well, he told me of another school, a charter school, that is looking for a counselor. He spoke to the principal today and she said she did want to get someone in there. 
He told her about me. I am not sure what she said after that but I do know that she inquired about interns. So he gave her the number to the lady who places the interns from the USF program where he works (where I went). She actually was in the program with me....used to be a principal and became a mft (marrige, family, child therapist).
Anyway, Chris told me that she (the charter school principal...am I losing you yet?) gave him her email address for me to send her my resume. He said "GET ON IT NOW!!! Send it right now and make sure you spell check it!" 

He said that because I am pretty sure, that in my haste yesterday, I sent out a cover letter or two with mistakes. I came home and saw what was on the computer and freaked! I stuttered in the first sentence! OH. MY. GOD!!! I was trying to think of a way to reach back into the mailbox to retrieve them and correct them. The recipients are EDUCATORS!!! OH MY GOD! I just kept freaking out. But then I realized there is nothing I can do about it but move on. That and do better next time!

OK, so, I emailed my cover letter and resume to that lady and am now praying. Praying HARD! She said she wanted a full time counselor. That would be so perfect. I need a full time job. They really would do better to have an experienced therapist in there rather than an intern. I am not just saying that because I need the job, but really, if they could do it, it would be best to have both, but for the sake of continuity. Otherwise, they are replacing the counselor EVERY year. I know! I was an intern in a school. I think it can actually be disruptive in a school community to have people coming in and out. Children really need stability. That is so important. I could go on....but I won't.

I just want to thank you all for your sweet comments. They are like warm hugs.
I have missed you all my dear friends!

As many atrocious memos and whatnot that I have gotten from the schools, I don't think they notice mistakes. :)
