I got a job!!! I'll find out Tuesday if I'm teaching 3rd or 5th grade but I found my job finally!!!!
Congratulations! Now it's time to decide what you are doing this weekend to celebrate.
Congrats and don't forget to change your status!!
I'm off work tonight from my other job and I was really hoping to do something FUN!! I'm still bouncing off the walls!
Now we need a "happy dance smiley" and a "bouncing off the walls smiley" :lol:
Have fun celebrating!! There is a thread somewhere about new jobs for the 2011-12 school season. I think it would be a great morale booster if you posted on that thread and got it bumped up for everyone to see.
Congrats!!! 5th is a great grade, but clearly I am partial! Either way they are great age groups!
Congrats! Wonderful news!! I teach science to 3rd up to 6th graders. Before that, I taught 5th grade for 2 years. I'm finding that I adore my 3rd graders even more, but both grades are wonderful to teach.
Congrats!!!!!! Is it for this year or the next school year? Way to go

Awesome! Glad for you!
Starts in August
Congrats! I'm so jealous. I am just applying because jobs are just being posted here. I am so nervous and just want it to be over so I can start getting excited about setting up my room, planning my lessons, and meeting my students!

Apply to districts even when they don't have jobs posted! That's how I got this one!! Good luck with your search!!
Congratulations! I'm also partial to 5th but I'm so happy to hear you'll have your own classroom come August. What a joy! Make sure to update us. Cheers!
You can't do this everywhere - it definitely doesn't work in my area, and would actually be really frowned upon - but I'm really glad that it worked in your situation!!

Congratulations! If you don't mind me asking (I'm not sure if you posted this already), but how soon after your interview were you offered the job? Just curious about how long the process takes...

My interview was on a Thursday. Before left I was told I would hear back on Monday. I actually got a call within 20 minutes of leaving =) It became official Monday night after the school board meeting.
Are you sure?
I've gotten several job offers that way.
You must have wowed them so much that they were afraid you'd be snapped up by another school if they waited until Monday! Again Congrats! I bet you haven't stopped smiling!
That's actually exactly what they said
And no I haven't! I'm having a girls' trip this weekend and we're celebrating!!
