“Can you not comprehend what is being written and shared with you? Or are you being purposely obtuse?”
So your advice is what - go back to school and become an engineer? And just how am I supposed to pay for that sort of thing?
“No offense, but a forklift certification isnt going to advance you teaching career now is it. And be aware I was an EHS manager...I certified forklift drivers! Its not a big deal to get certified, it is only an OSHA requirement. Not impressed unless you are going to be working in my warehouse.”
So, rather then simply wait around and work odd jobs, I can work in a warehouse and make more money at present - and there is demand for this at present.
That doesn’t prevent me from continuing to apply for teaching positions, or from taking said positions, or even from continuing to work at my present job where I am accruing relevant work experience.
...teacher who evaluates historical documents in the public domain San Antonio, TX
...Create and provide accurate and compelling Living History presentations that meet the standards of the National Park Service
...Act as costumed Museum teacher to communicate historical information to the public and schools
Which would you want to interview first JCBreckenridge to be a teacher? You see JCBreckenridge you don't want to grow and you have a narrow view of what you think you need to do. Instead you continue to choose to work another odd job (forklift operator), instead of looking into a field of teaching that would expand your horizons and teaching skills. Like being able to talk to the public and parents...
JCBreckenridge, based on this Internet conversation you do not demonstrate the needed aptitude to succeed. I appreciate your willingness to work hard, but you need to learn to work smarter.
Good luck with your chosen endeavors.
[That doesnt prevent me from continuing to apply for teaching positions,]
There is a plethora of positions from which one can Teach, Mr./Ms. Breckenridge - and very few of them are paid Teaching Positions.
Seems to me your angst is rooted in an inability to extract monetary gain from teaching - like the other members of your family in the business evidently did.
Did they own the warehouse and tree business where you claim to have worked? No? Then I conclude youre just a disingenuous arrogant twit who hasnt earned the right of comparison to the teachers Ive observed. They taught by example because they loved doing so - and sometimes in situations where it was dangerous to do so. They did so for little or no monetary gain.
And they didn't waste bandwidth whining because they're not going to get a retirement handed to them like the LIFER teat sucklers who came before you.
