Yesterday I posted my story about how I had interviewed for this fifth grade position. I had the second interview that went really good. The principal said the team of teachers wanted to send me on to meet with superintendent but she didn't know when that would be because she had to wait on some things, supposed "holding pattern." But basically, i was the one the team had picked out of the five candidates. So I've been waiting since then, eventually email principal back on July 21st. I never got a reply back. I guess I should have known something was up when i didn't get a reply because after waiting all day yesterday for principal to call me (it reopened on August 1st) and she didn't I finally decided to call myself today (august 2nd). The school district told me that position was filled so i called the school and she told me the same thing. Apparently, the principal was at a conference or a workshop today so I couldn't get any answers from her. But now, I've spent the entire day crying and wondering what happened. How did I go from supposedly meeting with superintendent to left waiting without even a phone call to say you know your not going to get the job after all. I had actually looked into housing in that area and was counting on this job. Now I'm looking at my options and I'm panicked and afraid of what I'm going to be doing now. Where do I go from here? Sorry, I needed to vent. Thanks for listening.
