I put in bids on two jobs today - my first choice is (probably) a lower-elementary room in a "center-based" program for severely emotionally impaired children. These are the hardest of cases, the ones that were not able to succeed even in self-contained rooms in their home districts.
My second choice is also in a center-based program with (probably) middle or upper elemtary aged severely impaired autistic children.
My dear friend reminds me that children like these need Christian teachers.
I am very much at peace with either one of these positions - I talked to the principal at the first school and she said that there is another bid that is at about the same level of seniority, so I may not get that. There are three positions open at the second school, so I am pretty much guaranteed a position there, if I don't get the first.
If I get the first one, great, that's God. If I don't, great, that's God.
