Adjunct job at Lesley University!

Today I had some good news! I interviewed for a position to teach an English class at Lesley University, and they offered me the job! I will be teaching freshman composition this coming fall!

I applied for it a while back, and got two rounds of emails turning me down before I got another that asked if I was still interested. I said yes, and got called in. I was nervous about my experience level, because I've never led my own class before; only guest lectured in other's people's classes. They asked for a syllabus from a class I'd taught, which for the aforementioned reason I didn't have. But I decided to design a sample one to show that I could, and to emphasize that I did have some classroom experience as well as the tutoring that I do every day. So, armed with that and some good advice from my awesome boss Bill, I went in and did my best. I got hired on the spot!

I'm really pleased. FOr some reason I don't "apply well" to things, and have had a very bad track record of getting my job applications noticed. While I'm much better in the interview, I rarely get to the interview stage, and when I got this one, I really didn't want to blow it. I'm proud of myself for doing well. Also it's a real step forward for me professionally. I think I've been held back by not having a lot of non-creative respectable job positions on my resume, and this definitely improves it.

I need to fill out my paperwork and choose a theme in the next two weeks. I have to get one that. But today I'm just proud of myself for FINALLY making this forward step.
