    Of the season and schools started one to two weeks ago :eek: (I don't count the music one as I am tone deaf and had to decline the interview out of respect to the students)

    But I have an interview. It is for a charter school not really close to where I live and traffic will be a nightmare but the concept of the school is great!!!

    Everyone - Keep hope. I may not have the job, but I was very discouraged prior to this call!!

    I dropped off my resume yesterday on my lunch figuring it would be like the others, thanks but no thanks (ACP EC-6) . Instead I had a call from the principal this morning at 8:30 (during the 2 minutes I did not have my phone w/me at work).
    Called back and told the receptionist I was returning his call regarding the position and she said she or his secretary would call me back to schedule an appt. That was the longest 2 hours of my life.
    Now back to figuring out what I am going to say in the interview!!

    Thanks for the good vibes everyone!!! I think it went really well, but don't have much to compare it to as it is my first. However, they did ask me to come back by to observe if I can get away from work.
    Needless to say I will be taking an extended lunch break (a little early) tomorrow at the school. I want them to see I am serious. And I know they are interviewing at least one person tomorrow.

    Don't get discouraged! I'm on the same boat. Things work out in a certain way for a reason, so keep searching and keep hoping! Good luck!

    MissT34 - Keep the hope. I kept mine and got a call for another interview over a month later. I did really well, but they felt they needed to hire someone with experience (so I came in second). However, they thought highly enough of me that they recommended me to another school where I interviewed and got hired. I just finished my first week!!!!!

    Great news. I've been looking for a while, but I'm taking time off to do some stuff that needs to be done for me this fall. I'm hoping to either find a position in the spring, or maybe do Clinical Teaching. Right now, I'm subbing for 3 districts and working about 2-3 days a week.
