So, today is Saturday and I get a call from a director/prinipal of a charter school 1/2 hour from my house. I applied for a few positions in the district. He wanted to interview me for prek. However, I accepted a position as an intern subbing (guaranteed work everyday and medical benefits, no dental, but at least I get something) and professional development starts Monday (all day). Orientation on Tuesday 9-12. Principal wanted to interview me Monday morning but I said I couldn't because of another commitment. Then Tuesday I said I was free after 12 and he said 12:30pm. I can't make it to the school by then because it takes 40 mins to get there from where I'll be. I told him I wouldn't get there in time. He finally said then stay with your other position. I think it's best or something like that. I have taught before and really want to teach again (not intern), but that's all I was offered. I almost called principal back to say I could meet at 12:30pm after all and that I'd tell my current job (as I didn't have to sign any contract) that I'd have to leave early Tuesday. Part of me thinks I lost an opportunity, but then another part of me says this wasn't meant to be. Last year I heard on the news that the school had allegations against their old director because of some $ issues. Not sure whole story and then recently school wanted to move to the old public middle school in town, but sincen that was built on a landfill/dump they couldn't (hence why public middle school built new one). I'm just tired of being either a.) passed up or b.) having people be so unaccomodating to even give me a chance. I want to teach again!
