    I have been looking forward to saying this for so long, but I got a job!! I will be working as a 9th grade English Teacher!! Yay! I am really quite suprised. I relentlessly applied to job postings all over California (where I live). I was actually on vacation in Baltimore during the interview a couple weeks ago, which was conducted over the phone. Today I got a call from the principal saying I was the second pick for a candidate for the position and that he just heard news that one of the teachers will be retiring and they need an immediate position (school starts on Wednesday!!:eek:).

    I live in southern California and will be moving up to the central California region. It's not the most ideal location, but I think it is especially important to be very flexible with where you work. To those still looking, keep applying!!! I think it is during these last moments before the school year begins that a lot of unexpected jobs pop up. Good luck everyone!!

    Congratulations on your job! This is very encouraging. :) I am in southern CA, too, and I'm planning to apply all over the state. I've noticed lots of central CA jobs posted on Edjoin! I'm elementary, and I won't be applying until after I finish my credential program in December, but I love seeing encouraging posts like this one. :) Good luck with starting your new job and with moving!! :)
