    Today I was offered a job in my first choice district! :)

    I am so thrilled. CA's job market has been rough. When I was first job searching in 2012 this district and most others like it were busy laying off hundreds of people. After 5 years in charter schools I'm finally getting into a public district! I am so excited.

    This district has a great reputation in my area, it's in the area I want to live in, it's a $10k raise from what I make now (and an even bigger raise over time), and I'll be teaching the population I have a heart for - students from low income homes and English learners.

    School and grade level are TBD, but I'm still so thrilled. Looking forward to a fresh start next year.

    Just wanted to share because I'm not going super public with this with real life acquaintances yet and I just had to get it out somewhere! Also, maybe this will give others some hope! The job market really has loosened up from what it was 5 years ago, in CA, anyway.

    Thanks everyone! :) I've been definitely wanting to move on to something new. I'm excited! (And eager to find out the grade level and school placement eventually..!)

    How do you plan to prepare? What will you do in the mean time?

    Well, I'm teaching 5th grade right now, so I'm pretty busy at the moment. I'll start preparing once I know the grade level. My preparation will vary depending on what the grade level is and whether or not I've taught it before.
