    Yay! This is great news. I hope it goes well and that your daughter could go there, too, if you get a job.

    STG, you have been so supportive of so many of us, so you must know that you probably have hundreds of people all over the world praying for you.

    stg-when I got back from my trip I was so happy to hear this news. I hope that all goes well for you today and as I was reading I was thinking that maybe your dd should go to school with you. The one year that I did not have my kids at school with me was very hard. Again, I can't wait to congratulate you this week.

    Man! I don't check in for a couple of days and look what happens! I'm so happy for you. I know you are knocking 'em dead right now! If your dd could go with you that would be perfect! You guys could listen to books on tape, learn a language, sing and bond in the car!

    Good luck!

    Well, the interview went FANTASTIC!!!!!! I remembered to use my portfolio. I answered the questions with examples. They had to do a Havermann/Habermann test(??). I think I did well on it. One of the interviewers was a teacher that was in the district when I was a student there. Her son and I were really good friends. In fact, he played in my wedding which she was in attendance too. At the end of the interview she told me that she hadn't put 2 and 2 together with my app until I walked in and she recognized me. She went on to say how proud of me she was. This would be for the 6th grade SS position and she's a 6th grade teacher. The AP walked me out and started giving me a little tour. She was aware that I knew the school from subbing. She started out teaching in the district that my sister is at so we laughed about how small of a world it was because she's from the same hometown as me. I'll find out Wed/Thur...already emailed my thank yous.

    Yank~I've found out that the district is slow at taking positions down once they're filled so I'm assuming that they aren't available anymore. This was just for 6th grade SS...which INteacher, is World History here, so if I get it, I'll be coming to you for advice!

    That sounds wonderful and I really hope this is the one for you. I am glad that you got those thank yous out. Remember you are the one that reminds us that sometimes it is not what you know but who you know. So hopefully this works for you.
