Banking and Teaching
A blog by Cynthia J. Cordell
Hello everyone, I would like to introduce you to a character that I am developing. Her name is Millie. I’m going to put Millie in different situations and wait to see, how well-rounded she can become.
Millie was looking at bath towels at a Bed and Bath store. She noticed that the monogramed towels offered a personal touch to the towels. Her friend Alicia was getting married and on the top of her list were colorful bath towels. Millie stepped out of the store for a moment to buy a fruit smoothie from the concessions stand. She sat down by the fountain and contemplated about buying a soft pretzel to go with that smoothie.
It was tax season. Millie was at this mall shopping for bath towels to burn up some time before her appointment with her accountant. He tutoring business had been showing promise lately and she was about to find out from her accountant, if she can make a living at it, in the long run.
A few days ago, Millie had been at the keyboard of her computer, to try to improve her resume. She had been working in the banking industry, but wanted to change her employment options. So she sent out her resume to private and public schools highlighting her teaching credentials in the hopes of landing a teaching job.
However, she didn’t want to burn any bridges with her banking job, so she only took on private tutoring positions that met only on the weekends. Eventually, she’d have to choose between the banking world and the teaching world, but for now she was happy to keep her job at the bank and to moonlight on the weekends with her teaching position.
