|Me Just a little bit after I was offered the position.|
It isn’t just a job I found either but I think I may have found the perfect job.
Though craftiness is often seen as a more Right brained creative thinking person skill set, my passion actually lies in math and science combined with design. I hold 2 degrees in Engineering and worked in the field for almost 5 years. After I was laid off of my Engineering job I start thinking seriously about going into teaching because being a professional engineer at times was very “soul-less”. I went back to school and took the classes necessary to take my Non-Teaching Degrees and qualify for a Professional Teaching Certificate. I originally certified in Math grades 6-12 because I’m comfortable with math and if not for money I would have probably added on a few science certificates.
Well last September I got my certificate but I couldn’t find a full-time work to about everyone’s shock including my own. I spent the school year as a substitute teacher. I learned a lot, I made some great contacts and used all of that to land myself what could be my dream teaching position!
I’ve spent the past year beating myself up because I couldn’t get a real teaching position wondering if I wasn’t a good candidate. Anyone who has been unemployed for a significant amount of time I’m sure knows exactly where I’m coming from.

It gets a bit weirder though as I will not be a high school math teacher this fall.
While being processed the Assistant Principle of the engineering Magnet program at the high school learned of my engineering background. When I returned 4 hours later being fully processed by HR to my new administrators I was then given an option. Either I could continue to be the Math teacher I was hired for OR I could instead teaching Introduction to Engineering and Drafting. I was told to take a few days to think about it.

I love the crocheted apple she did.
I’m not exactly sure what is in the future Treegold and Beegold. I love this blog, I love the Etsy Shop and everything I’m a part of but I’m unsure about how much available time I will have.
I’m going to write up a blog post in the next week or so with my future plan. I have actually been working on stuff behind the scenes for those that follow the Facebook Fan Page, on Twitter or Instagram have seen some of it. I’m big on the random photos of works in progress now.
I hope all are doing well and wish me luck as I’m potty training Wee Rose starting today!
