Dream jobs and childcare...

Monday, 24 September 2012

So, I've been asked to interview for what would be a dream job for me. It's coaching 3 high school and 2 primary school cheerleading teams. This is a big reason why I plan on teaching school when we move home- to coach the cheer teams. Well, that and the vacation time.

It seems like the perfect opportunity to go back to work super part-time (like 2 days per week) and pick up the extra I need to make the bills coaching. I'm also fairly certain I'm the most qualified candidate, since I'm the only American coach in my area.

Problem is the schools are roughly a half an hour from me, my car likes gas-a lot, and gas prices here are insane (I paid £7 for about a gallon today, that's about $12). Add to that the cost of after school childcare and nursery fees and I'm fairly certain the job won't pay enough.

Sigh.

I'm hopefully going to go interview this week and find out more, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I can't afford to quit my real job, so I'll probably have to let this one pass. How I wish it was a contract job until the summer with a pay of what I'm used to. Then I could leave my job and hopefully by the time the contract ran out we'd be headed to NC.

Double sigh.

It's times like this I wish my Mom was just around the corner. She'd have no problem watching the kids for a few hours for me.

I'll let you know how it works out...
