    This has been the craziest roller coaster in the world! I give up, I get two phone calls from the same district, do my interviews and now have them fighting over me! Now this is pending a reference check, but they should come back OK!

    I went to my first interview for the second position this morning and got called to come back in for the second required interview by lunch time. I finished eating lunch and by that time the phone rang again with the administrator from the other school asking me to come in and meet with the assistant principal and her for the other position. I had to tell her that I had to be at the other one at 2pm and wouldn't be able to go right over there. So she gave me her cell number and had me call her after I went to the other one. So by the time had got to the 2pm meeting the other administrator called to razz the other one and joke with her about wooing me to her school.

    Sorry for the rambling, but todays events were CRAZY to say the least. But all in all it ended with two offers on the table. Now I just have to make a decision, even though I kinda already have. Now pray for the references to come back A OK!

    My niece...three summers ago had 3 offers to decide on. I mean she is a wonderful girl-very smart-and nearly had a double major (elem ed and Spanish). But 3??

    Considering all was pretty well equal she went with the ubber-rich district with the lower grade offer at the highest price. (This was a girl who also had gotten a few scholarship offers as well and had to decide between them. sheesh)

    ***

    I am MORE than thrilled for you! I have been READING about your roller coaster...and wish you HAPPY CHOOSING!!!

    Enjoy your moment as the envy of the forum. :D

    Thanks everyone! I think I am taking the middle school multi needs position. It is a more intensive position special ed wise, but I really like the challenge and the administration I will be working with. The other is a self contained 3rd - 5th grade special ed class. Both great positions but the middle school one really is sticking out in my mind.

    My second job (way back when) was within 15 minutes of home... being a procrastinator-it was a God Send!

    ****

    So...when do you have to let them know by? Do you have the weekend to mull it over (will your opinion change)?

    I have to let them know on Monday. I don't think my mind will change before then. I really like the middle school position and the administrators I will be working with. I wish I could meet everyone on the team, but I am really happy and comfortable with the bosses I will be with at the middle school.
