    So I got a call from a principal last Thursday. I interviewed with her for an assistant position but didn't get the job. She said she was just checking to make sure I was still available and interested in working for the school and district. I of course said absolutely even if it was an assistant position.

    It was in the middle of the school day during lunch time so I'm hoping that means she'll have a position available soon! Has anyone else gotten a call from a principal like this?

    A busy principal at the hectic start of the year usually only makes priority calls. I would suggest, on Wednesday, politely checking in and reiterating that you are very interested in working for her school.

    Thanks for the advice Special-t! I don't want to be a nuisance but that would be a good way to keep my name fresh in her mind.

    I would really love to work for this school so I'm hoping something will work out. But I am spending my night sending emails to principals in area. I'm on email 10 of at least 50 right now!

    I got my first sub call today at 10. It was for a kindergarten class. As I was getting ready, I got a call from the HR lady in a different district (the same district where I got the phone call from the principal) wanting me to come to a school tomorrow to meet with the principal about a 4K aide position. I am going to meet with him tomorrow morning at 8:30. I have interview with him before so hopefully he's calling because I will be a good fit for this position instead of the other one I interviewed for.

    I had such a good day subbing and really enjoyed the school. I met the principal in the office and she was asking if I was certified. I told her that I had my Master's degree and she said there may be a long term sub position opening up this year. She seemed to be interested and the aide that I worked with said I would probably be getting lots of calls!

    Overall, today made me feel much better about the job search and I feel like I have some options. Definitely one of the best days I've had in a while!

    Good luck! I know an aide in South Carolina and it's a full-time position with benefits. Where I sub that is not the case.

    I had my interview today. It went really well. There are two position available. One is a full time 4K aide but I'm pretty sure they have someone in mind for that. The other position is a 4K aide part time at one school and part time in the media center at another school. I love both schools so either job would be OK with me.

    The principal introduced me to the 4K teacher at the school and then introduced me to the media specialist. The media specialist asked when I was going to start and I said I wasn't sure the job was even mine yet. She told me that he hasn't brought anyone else down there to meet with her so hopefully the job will be mine! The principal walked me out and we passed by another teacher who asked if I would be working there. I said that I hoped so! She said she will cross her fingers for me. The principal said he will call me by tomorrow afternoon.

    I sent out thank you notes so I guess I just have to play the waiting game!
