hi all, I have been applying for para jobs since school started and each time I find out from the vice principal that the principal has found someone else to put in there and I haven't been interviewed- well, until this last time there was a position that came up unexpectedly and they even had me volunteer in the classroom to see how things went, I gave a copy of my resume, letters of recommendation and got an interview- it had been 2 weeks and I hadn't heard anything until this morning- I found out that they put someone over there who there not sure is going to work out- I was bummed and just in shock because I thought I was going to get this one and now I am lost. they were asking about me to the teachers I volunteered with and the people I worked with in pre k when everyone- the principal, the dean and the vice principal came through and observed... right now I work in extended day and it is not where I want to be, due to issues with my boss and the fact that I want to be in the classroom and not working with the kids after school. this is the 4th position I have applied for and it is at the school I want- I know the teachers and have been volunteering here for 8 years on and off.. this has been a hard morning after hearing that and having to put on a happy face around my boss who noticed that my attitude was different after not getting a position over the summer..if I could of went home I would of, but I had to stay and stick it out.. I am wondering what to do next... I know I should keep applying, and as something comes up, I am jumping on it and trying not to give up... it has just been hard balancing working ext.day and trying to become a para... any advice??
