I've started over several times in my life. Any time there's a new beginning (which always sounds so promising) it means that I'm also starting over. I started over again yesterday. This time the new beginning is a new job. I'm still at the figure out what I'm supposed to be doing, how does the software work, what are my coworkers' names - stage. I think I'm going to like the job. I have really good coworkers - and so much of a workplace is who you work with. I like riding the bus. (I've done it to work once and home twice now.) I think it's a little amazing that I've lived in Regina four years now and this is the first time I've ridden the bus.
One thing that's interesting about this job is that although I was hired because of my background in Adult Education, I won't be actually teaching. I make links between volunteer tutors and learners, and supervise the computer lab, and do lots of contacting learners and tutors - but not much teaching. This will be different. Being a teacher has been part of my identity for so long, that I may have to mentally redefine who I am.
Now that I'm starting to get settled in my job, I want to further explore what classes I want to take this fall. Bram will be going to SIAST and I may want to do that as well (an on-line course). I need to make a decision by the 15th, I think.
