    I am just so frustrated with this Christian school. Not getting any answers at all...so do I call and hope someone is there just so I can get closure? My husband says don't call that the email I sent last night was enough and if he wanted to be in touch he would have already done so.

    Because you sent it last night I would wait a day, then call.

    I'm with jwteacher. Wait until Monday/Tuesday (depending on the 4th of July holiday) to call.

    Most schools and offices close during the week of July 4th. It is pretty universal everywhere. Email will probably be your best bet because so many people are vacationing. If you do not hear anything next week, I would bet the reason is because of district office closures for vacations. Many districts take a two week hiatus. I would check your school website. :) Since this is a private institution this may not be the case for you. But I just thought that I would throw it out there. Have a great vaca and remember... when interested parties ask... Just say, "I have so many possibilities right now, but honestly I am trying to take my mind off of the job hunt and just enjoy the vacation." If you feel like talking about it, then that conversation will happen because you wanted to talk about it. Take care and enjoy the kids!

    Finally got a call from the P. He asked for a few more days to get his ducks in a row. Said he has enrolled more students and has one more candidate he'd like to see. He did say he felt I was a good fit for the school based on my interview. He also said that if I got an offer from the other school that I please ask them for some time so that I could call him first before I accept another offer. I told him I was agreeable to that since I honestly preferred his school and would welcome an offer from him. He said that was great to hear and he'd be in touch Tues or Wed. Soooooo...still just in limbo.

    Enjoy your weekend--- at least in my part of the US its suppose to be beautiful, sunny, but really hot. Have fun and hopefully this week will bring lots of good news for you.

    As a Christian, I hope this man--- I'm going to assume he's Christian too since he's working at the school--- has been and will continue to be truthful to you. At my Catholic school (wow that feels good saying :) ), I was told they *HAD* to interview other people but it turns out (I almost was in happy tears from hearing this) the principal loved me so much and she just felt GOOD about me that she didn't bother. Perhaps things will work out like that for you too and they won't bother with the other interview and will just go ahead and make that call to offer you a contract.

    Great news! Look at the positives... he says your a good fit, he doesn't want you to just take another position without talking to him first, and he is glad to hear you like them as well!!!

    Now go have some fun with your family!!! :)

    That sounds VERY promising. My P said the same thing to me when I interviewed. That is the reason I knew I had the job.

    BioAngel He is a Christian man...was a minister prior to becoming a principal at this school.

    I am hoping he simply wants to see this other candidate to be sure he has the staff chosen that he feels is best based on which grade to place us in etc....I am trying not to feel like this is a definite thing, but I feel somewhat good knowing he feels Iam a good fit AND that he knows I prefer his school over another offer up front. Hoping by mid week I will finally be off this rollercoaster.
