Hey pals and gals, I'm back!

Just wanted to say hi and introduce my new job. I am now a Clinical Assistant to a school district where my children go to. I graduated from the district too, so it helps out that I know the schools and such. 

So far, it's hard work, doing the typical stuff I did in my old job, but this time I'm not by myself. I am currently working with RNs and I love them all. I am in a float position, so each day I go to different schools, which in total I got to 6 schools, all elementary. I got to choose what age group and that's what I choose. I get to visit my boy's school too, so that's fun sometimes.

As of right now, I'm also part of a screening team, where all the CAs are separated into teams and put to a bunch of schools for two days out of the week until the end of October, and we just screen. It's gone really well, and fast! I honestly wish I had this in my last job.

Here's hoping for the best!

Welcome back! It sounds like a fantastic position. I hope you continue to enjoy it.

One of the things I love about working at my kids school district is when I'm at their school they come to my office during their lunch or recess, just to say hi and get a hug.

That’s great! You were often so worried about the responsibility in your old position. This sounds like a place where you can use your skills and shine! Best to you.

Mine is still getting used to me, but he feels embarrassed to see me. I kinda like to mess with him, a bit...

Yup! I agree, and it shows a lot. I keep getting compliments on how well I can self manage a clinic without supervision with my experience, so after the first day, they basically just let me loose. The nurses always are super nice and happy to see me because I lift the burden for them a lot. They do either paperwork or manage the clinic, and I do the leftover option.

Congrats! I know it's hard to glean tone from a block of text, but I feel like I can sense your stress level has declined from last year a great deal. And also, Welcome Back!!

Excellent. Happy you were able to find something in the school system. Enjoy working where the bottom line isn't profit and enjoy staying out from under the bus.
