    To piggy-back a little on pruckelshaus' post:

    Last Monday I had an interview for a 1st grade opening. I got the call Thursday afternoon that I was their 2nd choice and really liked me and wished they had 2 openings instead of one. Of course I was bummed, but I talked to the principal for awhile on the phone, wished her luck for the school year, told her I would love to come and interview for the 08-09 school year for any potential openings, complimented her interview team (everything I told her was true!).... So then Friday morning she calls me and tells me that in the last 10 minutes a 3rd grade position opened up and she really really wants me for it!:woot:

    Of course I said yes. Obviously I did a good job in my interview but I know that my attitude and conversation on the phone on Thursday played a part too. If I was rude to her after she had said no she would not have called me on Friday for that sudden opening. So I was hired on Friday (2 days ago) and start tomorrow with new teacher orientation week!! :D

    Stay positive and something will come through!! Even if its not your dream job, grade level, location, or pay...etc.

    Congratulations!

    I just wanted to congratulate you. I have been there without a job and the second on the list for a position. What always works for me is "God's Favor" I have it and it is the best pull that you can have in the world.
