On Monday night after work, I relayed a conversation I'd had with a couple of my former staff members from Dallas ISD. They'd been notified earlier that day that they'd been laid off but would get a paycheck on Oct. 15 and that would be it.  Naturally, I was heartbroken for them and resolved to do what I could to help them and others as much as I could. 

I also went a step further to offer an email address, theyRIFed@me.com, in case anyone who does/did get RIFed by the financial exigency situation in the district wanted my help to circulate their resume to others. 

Well today I got an email from a North Dallas Mom who is looking for household management while she and her husband work during the day.  Here is what she wrote me:

I’m a reader of the Dallas Morning News Education blog and found you from their site.  This might be completely off-base but since you are connected to many people who may be laid off, I thought that I would give it a chance.  I am looking for a professional nanny/household manager.  We’re a two career family and we need someone who can love, care for, and encourage the development of our children  – and also keep our household running on a daily basis.   It’s not an easy job but we pay well and provide up to a month’s vacation and other perks.  This position is completely above board – we pay employer taxes, give performance reviews, etc.

This is the posting and I encourage any of you who are looking for a possible career change with some stability to take a look, this might just be the thing for you.
