So, on Monday, Julie had finally had enough. I applaud her decision to stand up for herself... but at the same time it really put the rest of the team in a bind.
The first reaction for me was "oh, well I guess I'll get that raise I was hoping for." Which is insane, because that was essentially me talking to myself saying that I'd already accepted her job. AAAAHhhh
So, the day plays out, and it's all quiet. The phone call comes in from 'head cheese'. We talked for a while, and he essentially offered me the job right away. I told him I'd have to think on it... which I have been doing.
I made lists of all the concerns I had. I talked with Rain about her point-of-view on the situation and the whole "independant business" aspect. That had me a little spooked. I mean, c'mon, I've got a kid on the way and a house to pay for. AAAAhhh
So, after some long chats to Tony and discussions with the wife, I made the decision.
I'm a CENTRE MANAGER for PTC Thunder Bay!
The wage is slightly less than I would make teaching Full Time... but there is potential to grow. I just have to get a hold of the Lakehead Board and figure out what the situation would be if I were to put myself on hold with them for the year. See what happens after that.
Wish me luck!
