    I just got a call from an assistant superintendent about a possible elementary opening! I'm supposed to call between 10:30 and 3:30 tomorrow to see if there will be an opening. Tomorrow is the day school starts! This sounds good, but I don't want to get my hopes up too high!

    Cross your fingers and toes and anything else you want to cross!

    Go to the Job Seekers section and review some of the questions in case you need to go in for a talk, but mostly, stay calm and make sure to have a good, leisurely breakfast while waiting for 10:30 to roll around. Keep us in the loop. We're here for you either way.

    Thanks, everyone! Hopefully something will come of it-- I mean, the assistant superintendent called me at 8:30 at night with this information, the day before school starts!

    Well, I called, and........the principal was out of the office! The very nice secretary took my name and number and said she would pass it along. I did drop the name of the asst. superintendent who told me to call. The secretary was like, oooooookkkkkk...so, we'll just wait and see. If I haven't heard anything by this afternoon, I'll call back and double check.

    Keep everything crossed! I'm supposed to resume working at my after-school care job this afternoon, which also includes teaching music and pe at a super small private school (9 kids in grades 1-6)...not what I want to do and the pay won't allow me to move out of my parent's house!

    I think my interview went well. The superintendent seemed to really like all of my responses, but the principal didn't seem quite as excited. She asked a question about how I would communicate with my parents, and I must have had a confused/blank look on face (I was thinking why would she care if I communicate with MY parents), and she quickly rephrased it with my students' parents (that made much more sense!). And to top it off, I knocked the principal's papers off her desk when I was leaving-- oops!

    But overall, I think it was a pretty good interview, and at least it was good interview experience. The principal said she would contact me, either way, soon, so no real day/time to look forward to.

    Also, I ran into the asst superintendent that called me while I was dropping off my sister at school today. She told me that there will most likely be a few openings in her district, and to keep my name fresh in everyone's minds. When I got home, I had a vm from a principal requesting all of my documents!
