Serious Left-Static Negativist
Job suggestions sought!
My one year-temp teaching position is winding to an end here at the end of the school year, as the tenured teacher is returning. I need to think of what work I can do, as with quarantines, teaching positions may be cut, especially my special area, which could be easily deemed non-essential.*
Many years now it's been teaching, or subbing, and I am looking to broaden the field. I'm not too keen on retail or restaurant work (and with quarantines, not a dependable future) and I don't want to use my own car for Uber or Amazon deliveries, putting wear and tear on it for a low wage job and not making enough to save for a replacement car. I have a little time to play with, but very soon I need to work, and we can get by on little if we have to. I need suggestions! I was given one suggestion, data entry from home. Hopefully there might be flexibility with time with that, which I would like. Much as I am sick of this computer from distance learning teaching morning til night these last 12 weeks, to be online on a more limited basis, like a mere 8 hours a day might feel like a vacation. I could do it and would love not driving somewhere. I live in a small town here in the semi-rural Berkshires Ct, in a place that is town after town. A couple of small cities are nearby, and down towards the shore there is plenty of population and more sizable small cities, but at 45-60 min. one-way commute, I am not into it (I prefer 20min. or less!). So, beggars can't be choosers, but I would like choices and directions to consider. If anyone would like to throw some ideas at me, I'd appreciate it!
*There is another the reason,. Powers that be seem to be angling towards forced vaccinations, and if I am teaching, even in a good position I like and enjoy, and if they require teachers to get vaccinations to "protect" children, I will quit then and the because I don't want one. I'd rather be poor than sick.

"Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the Church, is often labeled today as fundamentalism... Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and swept along
by every wind of teaching, looks like the only
attitude acceptable to today's standards." - Pope Benedict the XVI, "The Dictatorship of Relativism"
