    Oh my goodness.:love: :wow: The district I have wanted to work in for two years called me today out of the blue and offered me a position!

    It is 3 miles from my house (versus 45 I drive now!) and where my kids are! I interviewed once last year, but today the principal called and offered me a job. I am still in shock. The Lord answered my prayer today, 2 days before I was locked into my contract for next year!

    He told us that He would be faithful, and this is just another example of answered prayer and fulfilled promises!

    How WONDERFUL!!!!

    It's exciting isn't it?!
    I had that happen to me when I needed an internship. The school I had been subbing at called and offered me a TA position out of the blue. Kinda blows you away doesn't it?
    It's wonderful to know that God does have a plan for us isn't it?
    Congratulations! Enjoy your year!

    WOW - you are really lucky!!! This must be like a dream coming true - right? I am glad that you did not have to go through the interview process etc.

    When you said that you interviewed there last year - so what was their response then? Did they say "no" at that time? And now, they offered a position? Could you please share your experience. It might give us some hope :) .

    Congratulations and enjoy the school year.

    Thank you all! Calif teacher, yes, I had interviewed for two other positions there last year and didn't get either one. A coach's wife was hired for both of the openings. (Nothing against being a coach's wife!;) I understand their need to work at the same district.)

    I believe I didn't have to interview this year because the school knows me so well (small community) from my children going there and us being active in the community. Also, the principal knew I was already certified for this position (Special Ed). I'm leaving the regular classroom to teach Special Ed.

    While I didn't have to interview for THIS position, I've had my share of rejection. I graduated in 2005 and before I got my job for the 2006/2007 school year, I had been told NO twelve times! Boy, does that build character! I just prayed that I could get a job closer to home and be near my children. I had no idea of any openings this time. An answered prayer for sure!

    That is so encouraging. Congratulations to you. Just goes to show...anything can happen. Now, if a little of that karma will just rub off on my "home school"...

    Thank you all...please know that I was not trying to "brag" with this post, only to encourage others that when one door closes, another will open! (It may take a while, but it does!)

    It is to remind us that each interview is VERY important in the impression we leave behind and just because you don't get THAT job, another may pop up! I know I would get so discouraged with each rejection, but then for this to happen, WOW, made it all worth it.
