    I haven't been posting often about interviews here, because part of me was afraid of jinxing myself....but I had 3 interviews last week (2 for part time teaching, no benefits, and 1 for full time TA with benefits). Today, the principal of the school with the TA job called me and offered me the job. I accepted and immediately started shaking once I got off the phone. I am so unbelievably happy!!

    I want to thank everyone here for their support and advice, especially to those who told me to just go ahead and send my resumes out to principals, even if there are no job postings. That's what I did, and that's how I got this job. The position just opened up last week and she had my resume.

    To those who are still looking for jobs....don't give up!! Yes, school has started, but by the amount of recent job openings I've seen, plus the interviews I have gone on....things happen, people leave for other positions, etc. Keep trying, and you'll have success. If it can happen to me, it can happen to you (and believe me on this, I live in NY, jobs are few here!)

    Now I need to calm down, eat some breakfast, and then head over to administration to fill out forms. Yay! :)

    My first day was good! It's a special ed class and I wasn't sure how the students would react to a new person. But so far everything is going well and I'm trying to learn more about each child and how I can effectively help them.
