As if I wasn’t confused enough. I got an email today for a job interview at a school on West 92nd Street. It’s for middle school science. It’s a small school so I bet I would have to teach more than one grade level. I hate doing that, but it’s not like I haven’t done it before. I did it the first 2 years I taught period. And I’ve done it in special ed. Ugh. I don’t know what the fuck to do. Just when I was about to decide to stay where I am.
I feel like accepting that job in Queens was a mistake. I am no longer even interviewing outside of Manhattan. I’m just not. The money where I am is going to be better even though I didn’t think it was. If I get a bonus of 6-12k, then yeah, it’s way more money. The retirement, though! I just don’t know what to do. I hate it that I don’t understand that stuff, and I have no one- not one single fucking person to help me with it. I have no one to ask. I have some kind of plan where I am currently, but I don’t fucking understand it or have any idea if it’s even enough money to amount to anything. I do know that I pay social security here, so I could draw that maybe
