    Early on in the interview I posted about how frustrating waiting for a response is. I got a job offer in a school that's a 4o min commute and the principal was great. The next day I interviewed at the school I student taught at and they wanted to hire me. I accepted today but an hour later I got a phone call from a top school in the city, so I backed out of the other job.

    I felt it was hopeless at times, but I realized you have to believe in yourself, speak confidently, and try not to give up hope. The top school actually emailed me the day before saying they filled the position, but they called today and said a second opening was available!

    So good things do happen! Believe!
