    Alright guys! I got a call from a principal in a district that I did not apply at. The district is about 30 miles from where I live, not bad. Anyway, the principal called offering me a 2nd grade position, with 18 students, 6 ESL (I have cert.). The principal said that he had connections in the town I live in and one of the principals forwarded my resume to him saying I looked very promising. This is one principal that I had emailed hoping to get a job at her school. So I'm a 2nd grade teacher!!!!!!!...again.:2up:

    CONGRATULATIONS! How exciting! What a roller coaster ride for you, but now you're a teacher! Good luck!

    Congrats! That's pretty cool that they forwarded your resume. You must have made an impression. Sounds like the school you wanted just didn't have openings.

    Thank you everyone! The thing is I didn't even interview with this principal. It was all based on off my resume I guess. And the principal was talking to me about working in Weatherford b/c he worked in Weatherford as well. Come to find out, we knew a couple of the same people.

    The first day of school was Monday. The teacher they had was a bilingual teacher, but the numbers at another school were higher so they transfered her to the other school. I guess I'll start Tuesday.

    Well, I just got a call from the principal of the school. He informed me that the superintendent hired someone else (one of those he knows someone). So it's back to square one and subbing this year.

    Yes it does!! I guess I should be glad to have the opportunity. The principal did say that he wanted to hire me but that superintendent overruled him.

    Man, that stinks! Something similar happened to me this summer. It was lousy.

    Hang in there though. Perhaps something else will come up.

    That's horrible! I can't believe they would do something like that. :mad:

    At least you know that they did want you.
