    Well..I had 3 interviews today, and honestly I've been on soooooo many interviews I'm just drained. I almost cancelled this morning because I was so sick of it. I went anyways...at my first interview as I was walking out to my car the ap came running out (they had another interview waiting right after me though.) He asked me to come back in and sit down for a sec, even though he knew I had to go to another interview in 45 min...so I went in...and sat in the lobby very confused (I didn't think the interview went that well to begin with.)
    He left and came back 5 min. later...He offered me the job!!! He said that the principal, him and the other teachers really liked me and they wanted to offer me the position. He said they had other interviews they had to do as a formality but they were definetely hiring me. He said that they wanted to make sure they offered it to me before I went on any other interviews and they missed the opportunity. Yay!!! I'm teaching 5th grade next year and I'm sooooo excited. :)

    I was going to...but he kept me waiting so long that I missed the one right after it. I called them right away and explained the situation. (I wasn't technically late yet..but the school was 30 min. away..and I had 15 min. to get there. They knew I had an interview right before them.) They were very understanding. I went to the other interview though. (which was a 2nd interview calll back...) The principal knew the ap at the school I got the job at. He said that he knew he wanted to hire me and he was sorry that the first school got me first:)
    I was sooo stressed out about finding a job...it's like a relief lifted off my shoulders. I'm not counting my chickens before they're hatched..I think I'm signing the contract tomorrow. I signed a letter of intent today.

    Where in MD? I'm near Annapolis. I know for a fact, though, that we aren't having any new 5th grade teachers at my school, and we don't have an AP either...so you won't be at my school!
