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