Sorry it wasn't a good fit! My last job was the same way. I just hated it.

I'd just tell the teacher, and ask what she thinks you should do. He may be able to just call the supervisor.

Are you going to go back to your vet tech job?

Hahaha yes I did talk to him. Nothing set in stone but I'm going in Tuesday evening to "meet with" him.


I ended up talking to the teacher about it, and she was really understanding and whatnot and ended up taking care of everything else for me. Soo, that's that.

I just need to step back and take a breather and do a job that is comfortable to me while I figure out what I really want.

ETA my response to this:

Nope, I'm not. I really don't regret leaving that job, even though the preschool didn't work out. Because I STILL wouldn't have been happy even if I had stayed at the clinic. I'll still go back to help out when they're short staffed, but yeah that's about the extent that I want to be involved. What I did realize now is that I really DO want to work with animals. omg how I've missed it. We took a field trip today to a little pumpkin patch that had goats and cow calves, and I think I enjoyed the animals more than the kids did lol I was like YAY SOMETHING FUZZY!!

Adequate response.

A shorter commute sure would be nice! This 30-40 minute stuff is killing me. And it's not even winter yet!

That's what working in the library taught me. I still volunteered at the zoo every week back then, and OH MAN how I looked forward to it! RHINO SNUGGLE TIME!!!!

That's what I felt like when I left the clinic. Like a part of me was incomplete.

Tonight I applied to be an instructor at a veterinary technician school... I think that might be "my thing." Combining teaching with animals...? We'll see I guess.

Good luck on your search!

The only problem is that all the jobs are in WI and the closest is Eau Claire.

But I'm really, really unhappy where I am right now so... yeah.
