There were no full-time home economics teaching jobs in this area, so I was substitute teaching while I continued my job search. While I was substituting one day, a teacher told me about this position announcement. I applied and was called for an interview, and yet I really felt I wanted to be a teacher. I had decided to go back to school and earn my multiple-subject teaching credential, and I almost called to cancel my interview.
