I'm currently super excited because I got to be back in the classroom after nearly 5 months of waiting and looking for work in Australia. It took nearly 2 months to process my paperwork and get registered. Once I got approved we found out we were moving from Perth and the schools were currently on school holidays while we waited to move.
After a short week of emails to schools in this area, I got a call back for the school within walking distance for me and got to get to work the day after I had a meeting. They're very friendly and seem eager to let me work at the school. (They called me later in the week to schedule 3 days this coming week!) I had another meeting later this week with a school a little further away, but still within the area. They instantly booked me for 5 days this month.
I'm hoping these two schools will keep me busy enough as other schools are nearly an hour drive away. I've got my fingers crossed for full-time work next year, but I may have to sort my Visa situation before that's allowed and it may also take a while. For now, I'm happy for the relief work and to be in the classroom again. Looks like this move was an all around good choice!
