    Oh dear goodness gracious....I checked my "business" email today and found a message asking if I would be interested in a position with a charter school in Cleveland. They would be conducting phone interviews today and tomorrow. I sent an email back right away that of course I would and they called me back within five minutes. They offered me a position!! First grade.

    I have been running around, breathing hard, waving my hands around like Scarlett O'Hara...I think I am slightly hysterical.

    Yeah, SpaceAngel...way to go!!!

    My first job starts next week (K), and I'm in a charter school too--focus is on environment (science emphasis). What kind of charter school is yours?

    I don't know much about it yet...I know they use the Calvert school curiculum. It is called the Weems School, I dohnt know if that is some kind of national name or not.

    My area is so crappy we don't even have charter schools. This is the worst area in America :( Finding a job is hopeless here.

    I have also been hired at Weems school to teach 2nd grade. I was very excited at first but it is starting to seem really odd that there is only an answering service and I have not actually meet anyone in person. And everything that they tell us keeps changing. I guess that I will feel better after I meet someone in person.

    There sure are a lot of use around here! It is frustrating to me, too, but I keep telling myself that it can't be easy starting up a school from scratch (I think they just got the charter at the end of July), especially when they are not yet able to get into the building. They really do exist, because when I did a search for the name, I came up with an article about the Charter lottery, and it was mentioned in there.

    Thanks for letting me know that you seen Weems School in the Lottery. I found your message when I did a search but nothing else. I guess that I will be meeting you on Wednesday. I am looking forward to getting started! What grade will you be teaching? My neighbor just retired from teaching 1st grade and she gave me a whole bunch of stuff.

    I posted my application at teachers-teachers.com You get notified of job openings throughout the country. If you are willing to relocate there are plenty of jobs in Florida. I taught 1st grade there.

    I hope you get it JaimeMarie. I know how down in dumps you were just a few weeks ago. It would be wonderful if you get it. What is an ed tech job? You don't like it?
