Sometimes A Bad Apple Can Be A Wake Up Call... Snow White
Lately, we've all been impacted by the changing economy. I work in the education field and this year at the end of the year, five teachers had to move to other schools, teach other grade levels and say good-bye to friends and co-workers. It wasn't an easy move for any of them. I was reminded of the year, I graduated from my master's program in school counseling and was looking for a job. I interviewed at a zillion different schools, even thought I would get the job at a couple of them and then everything fell through. All my friends were already employed and still, I was looking and waiting, not very patiently, I might add. I finally interviewed at Sixes Elementary and was hired into what has been a dream job at a phenomenal school for eighteen years now. Sometimes rejection turns out to be the best answer. Sometimes change turns out to be new opportunities. Sometimes a bad apple can be a wake-up call.
