I interviewed last Monday-June 26th-and finally got a call back this Thursday. The first call I got was regarding some additional information they needed for my application, but within 30 minutes I got offered a third grade position at a school that is two blocks from my house. The school is about as inner city as you can get in such a small town-we have several elementary schools, and this one is the one that "good parents" don't want their children to have to go to. It is so sad. I was SHOCKED that they hired a first year teacher to teach third grade (end-of-grade testing year) but I am so excited. I know it is going to be a big challenge. Anyways, just had to share that I finally got a job! Yeah!
