    I will be teaching English (most likely 9th-10th grade) in Massachusetts this fall!

    Some of you have been following my story - Met two of the admins at a job fair in Feb. where they told me they would have an English opening for this upcoming year. Had my first interview in March with the same two admins who told me they wanted to have someone hired by May. Second interviews got postponed and didn't happen until May. The second interview went really well and I had a great feeling about it. They told me they'd be in touch within a couple weeks, hopefully sooner. Two weeks later they called one of my references and told her it was between me and two other candidates. I emailed to follow up. No response. I called. No response. Finally, yesterday I sent another follow up email checking in and telling them they were my top choice of schools to work at. This afternoon, the P emailed me saying that the final decision had not yet been made, but she would be in touch very soon, and thanking me for my patience. A few hours later, the call came in, offering me the position!!

    I am so relieved and thankful. Thank you everyone for your support, and I am sending everyone my best wishes for happy job offer stories!

    Awesome!

    Is this your first year teaching? It will be my first year, and we'll be teaching the same class/subject -- 9th/10th grade English!
