So yesterday I had an interview...my first and at the end the principal told me she would be contacting HR to recommend me for hire! I'm so excited I gave myself a headache and had to nap The principal wanted me right off and I got such good vibes from her so I'm dueling excited about the school and working under her. I just feel like a weight has been lifted but now comes the final touches. HR contacted me with the accept/decline email so they can continue processing my application towards final approval and a contract. BUT they mentioned a receipt from FAST PASS that I'd done my fingerprinting. Unless I want to drive to Abilene or Dallas the fingerprinting places to get it done like tomorrow since everywhere near me are "schedule full" this week and through Tuesday. I was lucky to find an opening 8/20! I'm getting a little worked up on them possessing holding a contract over until the very last minute. I NEED to give my current job my resignation ASAP. Getting a final contract 8/22 and having to pretty much quit would be so bad and not me! My job pretty much got me this teaching job due to the experience. Everyone is telling me it's such a little deal and to not get worked up over it but I can't help it. I need to give them something this MONDAY. But I don;t feel right until I have something in writing aka a contract from the district. I'm registered for fingerprinting and my background is about as clean as a newborn babies (no tickets honest!) so I'm not worried I just want to get the ball rolling because I still have time. I just want to be complete. I want to email HR in the morning and tell them I'm registered for the fingerprinting with a standing appointment 8/20 but I DON'T want to sound pushy and I know rules are rules but I would be crushed if I have to wait until the very last minute to sign and be done because who knows how long the fingerprinting will be processed. I'd pretty much have to quit my job and I don't want to just up and quit because they deserve better and I'm not that person. I'm probably getting myself too worked up over this but it's making me want to cry. I want to enjoy being blessed but the logistics are getting to me. It's probably not as big a deal as I'm making it but I don't want to be pushy or anything but if they hold that one thing when my background clearance comes through perfect and everything else is done I'll just cry I know it.
