    hi all,

    just as i had pretty much given up hope on finding a regular position for next year - the district of my dreams :) called today to schedule an interview! HOORAY! as many of you know, i have been looking for a "good" teach. job for a looooooong time (like 5 years). i am so excited to have this opportunity - i can't wait to start practicing questions & answers! wish me luck, everyone!

    Good luck! I've been searching for a long time too (hard core for 4 years), so I know how excited you must be.

    oh dear - does your charter have the title 'preparatory & fitness academy' attached to it??!! if so, we are working for the same company!!

    right now i live in the cincy area. i am hoping the job market will get better here (come on teachers - retire, already!) - i feel like i've been searching forever for that perfect job. anyhoo, i am so stoked about my upcoming interview. the district is amazing :) :) :) & i am their teacher!!! now i just have to convince them of that......

    good luck in your own search & have a wonderful weekend!

    Yes! It is Trotwood Prep and Fitness Academy. Will your interview be for one of our prep and fitness academies? I love it there and really like the superintendent. She really does care about each and every employee and I work with amazing people at my school. Let me know if you get the job because if you do, I will see you in Aug. when we have our inservices.

    I'm sorry Merigold. I misunderstood. I thought your interview is for a prep and fitness academy. Good luck with your interview and best wishes to you.

    hi,
    no worries about the mistake. right now i work at a prep. & fitness academy (just like you! :)), but i'm trying to find a public school job. i am not really concerned about making more $$$ - primarily i'm just looking for more support, resources, etc. i agree w/your comment about the staff - we have great teachers where i work too. that will probably be the hardest part about leaving :(.
    are you looking for another position too? if so, good luck in your search. ohio can be a tough, tough place to find a teach. job - but i believe there's hope for all of us. have a great weekend! :)

    i just love you guys! :) sooooo the nerves have started to kick in - but i am feeling MUCH better today. yesterday i made myself start reading (& rereading & rereading.....) some of my letters of reco./letters from parents/other good stuff. i figure everytime i start to get down (which we know kind of goes w/the whole inter. process), i will just do this. it really does raise your spirits.

    my b-day/interview will be on tuesday. i will post after i eat my birthday cake & drink several glasses of wine (ha-ha). thanks again for all the positive vibes & support :) :) :).
