I'm a little upset. Yesterday was meet the teacher for my kids. While there, the school principal came up to me and asked me if a principal from another school contacted me. I told her no. She said she'd given my name to her just 2 days ago because she was looking for a teacher. She told me to go to the school and speak to her. I hesitated a bit because i wasn't dressed; I was wearing flip flops, jeans and a tee. Well I went anyway. The principal was busy but asked me to leave my name and number. Well, she called me this morning and told me that because they had to make such a quick decision, they'd already hired a teacher on Thursday (same day they did interviews). I was bummed when she told me but I went ahead and told her that her campus just so happened to be the one where i'd be doing my student teaching starting next week. She was so excited to hear that and told me she could not wait to meet me. Even though I didn't get this position, I still have hope that something will open up! For those of you who haven't been hired, don't lose hope!! Go volunteer/sub. Keep in contact with HR. Make connections. I was able to get to know the principal by volunteering at the school and attending all of my kids' school functions. Put yourself out there for the principal, teachers, and staff to get to know you.
