A Month of Thanks - Day 4

Today I am thankful for my new job.  I am enjoying this very much.  Since many have asked, I'll describe it briefly here.  I am a Prescreener for The New Teacher Project.  I look at the applications coming in and using the TNTP model, determine whether the applicant gets an interview or not.  This is work that can be done at home on my computer.  In fact, I couldn't sleep last night and so I screened two files.  It is quite nice to be able to log on when I am able and make money.  Jack is doing this as well while his business builds up. It has given us something new to talk about and bond over.  It has been cool.

I love feeling like I am contributing again to my family, and that I am still having some minor role in education.  

What are you thankful for today?


  1. I found the earrings that I thought I lost a week ago :-) The rest of the week: purely crappy. So glad you have found something that gives you joy! TNTP, that's Karla's place, too. Good work. (Let me know if they need another peep.)

  2. Gretchen, sorry for your crappy week. They do come! Glad you found your earrings! I will let you know. I am enjoying it. It trickles in, and for me that is frustrating. I would like to schedule, TNTP time. But you can't do that. Or at least right now we can't!
