    I was really beginning to think that I wouldn't get any interviews this year. I've been applying to places since February and hadn't gotten any calls. I finally just got a call from a principal in a district a few towns over, though! They're looking for a 2nd grade and a 5th grade teacher. The primary and intermediate grades are separated in that district so the 2nd and 5th grade positions are at different schools. The principal that called me is from the intermediate school, but the interviews are being held at the school with the primary grades. So, I'm guessing I've got a shot at both positions. I'd really love the 5th grade, but I'd be more than happy with either!

    The interview isn't until the 26th, though so I have over a week to worry about it. haha I'm just so glad I finally got a phone call!

    I know! I like that so much better. I'm such a worrier anyway that sitting around waiting until next Tuesday is going to drive me insane! :eek:

    I will definitely try my best to get a job so that you can get one a week later! It worked last year, right?? You called it last year when you said that you felt like it was the year we would both have our own classrooms, so send some more good vibes my way! Hopefully this year we'll both have our own classrooms in schools that are more ideal for us.

    I don't know a whole lot about the schools because they're about a 30 min. drive from here, but I've been doing some research. It's some-what of a small town and the schools are pretty small. The test scores seem to be pretty average in the schools with the older grades (the state tests don't start until 3rd grade). I mentioned it to my dad and he said that he's always heard good things about the schools there too. It sounds like a pretty good district.

    Great news, Beth. Did you already give notice at the private school? Sorry if you posted about that and I missed it.

    I haven't officially given notice, but they know that I'm looking for a job in the public schools. I was told that the job is mine if I want it and they won't replace me unless I tell them I have another job, even if it takes until August.
