    So, I'm still absorbing the fact that I didn't get the job. It was basically mine...I was the best candidate, I subbed long-term for a year at the school, did my student teaching there. I was told I was the one...then what happened??? A teacher in the district had to be placed..........I am so disappointed.

    I thought it was my dream job, 5th grade...there are so many emotions going through my head. This was the only interview I had. I desperately want my own classroom.

    I do have a long-term sub through February, and I am thankful, but it is going to be another year of no health insurance. PLUS, I will be subbing at that school.....it is going to be sad to walk by the class that I was so close to getting....... :(

    I'm sorry. I have been an aide in my school and even though I got an interview, the P decided he wanted to place me as a special ed teacher.....one problem, the district said he couldn't hire another teacher. :( So it looks like another year of being an aide.

    I'm so sorry but don't give up just yet. I've seen teachers hired weeks after school starts.

    That stinks. At least it was for a teacher in the district being placed in the spot and not some random person who interviewed for the job and was given it instead of you.

    Yep, and if you are at that school already subbing, there is a good chance that they will take you over someone new :)

    That is so disappointing. I am sorry to hear that. Well, something will have to come up eventually.

    Thank you all, so much for your support! I am hoping that something opens up last minute, I just don't think it's likely in this economy. I'm just grateful that I have all of you to come to! Thank you!

    Prepare yourself for the possibility you might have to sub in that class this year...
