Didn't get it. Same story: I am the runner up, great interview, we loved you, we wish we had another position, please apply again if you don't find anything. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. They hired someone with an early childhood background. He said he believed I would have been fine in preK but they had to go with someone with the early childhood experience. Fair enough. But he was very nice. He told me they want me at their school but see me as the perfect grade 1--4 teacher. He is expecting to have two retirements next year, but that is a long way off. I will have an interview in another district for 1st grade the week of August 5th. I have one other application pending for K. Having taught 2,3, and 4, those grades are my best bets, although I was excited to try PreK. There just haven't been any openings within commuting distance in the grades which I've taught.
