Okay, so here's the brief backstory: I'm a recent grad degree recipient in English Ed who will be a first year teacher. I have been striking out all over the place, including my home state of NH. I know it's too early to start panicking, so I haven't yet. Because I am single and not tied to any one state, I sent out applications all over. Less than a week ago, I received an email from a principal in KS who received my app and wanted a phone interview. "Yay!" I thought... First interview! We emailed back and forth a few times and was eager to answer any questions I had. My phone interview was this morning, and she asked me towards the end "okay, what do I have to do to get you down to (town name)?". So shocked, I asked for some time to think. Everything happened so fast! We'll talk again next week. It is a very small school, and I would teach 8-12 English. Very small! I have a great rapport with the principal. She is keen to hire me because they are building a theater program and I have performance experience. The school is tech savvy and close-knit. The cons are fewer: I would be far away from family, and in the middle of nowhere. The nearest reasonably priced airport is 3 hrs away. Honestly, those are the only cons I can see. I know this is a lot to read, but I am feeling a bit overwhelmed! Any info on Kansas schools or living, or just advice in general would be SO helpful!!
