Update on the JOB

As of this moment, the job I thought I had is no more and I have another interview in tomorrow morning. Oh well, so goes life.

The position I did have was 3rd -5th grade Reading Coach in an urban school. The grades I prefer and the subject I am best at. Needless to say, I was excited.

Tomorrow's interview is for a very inner city school teaching Kindergarten. And to practice what we talked about in Bible class this Sunday (Phil 4), I will think on the good things. Here goes: My best friend used to teach Kindergarten and she will be my saving grace. I know this area because it is in the neighborhood where I student taught. People are praying for me. God has a plan.

Okay, so the negative list is a little longer.

God is in control. I do know that.


  1. Candace, I am absolutely inspired by your refusal to take this sitting down! You are 1000% correct that God IS in complete control; He navigated me down some pretty convoluted roads to get where I am now, which is exactly where He positioned me to be. I can see it so clearly it about knocks me off my feet, and I know He is doing the same for you.

    I taught in an inner city high school for two years, and you will never meet more genuine, real kids in your life. I am thinking of you and praying for you. I love how God brings together so many of us in spirit to pray for and encourage one another. I just know He has some mind-blowing things in store for you!


  2. Wow, what an opportunity that would be to teach such a young age at an inner city school. It sounds like God has some special plans for you. I wish you the best!
