Mr. Shacklett?

Ok, I know it’s been way too long. I’ve said before that when I have big things weighing on my mind, it’s difficult to share. So, I’ve had a really big thing and I’m finally free to share.

I’m in the midst of a big career change. I turn 35 in just a little more than a month. That’s about the right time for a career change, right?

Anyway, I’ve been working on the Non-traditional Licensure program for teaching and I’m hoping to get a job teaching in a Middle School this fall. I’ve been in class everyday from 8am-3:30pm everyday since last Monday (not including weekend) and I’m pretty pooped.

The reason I’m sharing now is that I finally got all my test scores back, (long story for another time), so I’m officially in the program.

I’m also sharing now, because if anybody still reads this, I need all the prayers and good vibes you can send my way tomorrow.

THE job at THE school that I’ve thought I wanted from the beginning came up and I have an informal interview with Principal tomorrow at about 3pm. This is really the only job that I want and I want it BAD! I know that she’s interviewing a lot of other people, but I think I can do it the best. I just hope I get a chance to show her that.

I’ll keep you posted.

So, Mclaren really can throw down…


I know it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. And probably most people who still check my blog also read Jake’s, which is where I heard about this article. But, the more people who read this short interview, the better.

I’ve never been much of a fan of Relevant Magazine, and I’m an unabashed fan of McLaren. He’s a smart guy and makes me hope.
