    I went for an interview last week at a preschool, did a demo lesson Thursday, and was asked to go in today to work with the kids some more. Today is when I realized I really want to do this and sure enough, when I spoke to the director after, I was offered the job!! :D

    I am going to be teaching 3 year olds who attend the morning/half-time program. It's a part-time position but the more I think about it, the better it is for me because 1) this will be my first time having my own classroom (ahhh!!!), 2) I will be collaborating with another teacher who is very friendly and know I will learn a lot from, and 3) I have plans to start my masters in January and this will work well with that too.

    I am soooo excited! This is a well-established neighborhood preschool with a great reputation for years. It's a two minute drive away from me (not exaggerating). Many of my friends were students there when they were little and I just know they are going to be so happy for me when I tell them where I got a job! I am very grateful to have been given this opportunity right out of college. I'm so happy!!!

    I GOT A JOB!!! :D

    You are lucky you are putting your BA to great use. I'm from NY as well and got my masters in Education in 2008 and it hasn't been worth anything more than the diploma it came on. Best wishes!

    Thank you so much everyone!! I was all smiles all day today. I can't believe it! I finally have a reason to go to the school supply store and use the giftcards I received at the end of student teaching! ;)

    Rachael, it is a private preschool.
