    I had a great interview today and after the tour, the principal sent me to HR and they offered me a contract on the spot!

    It is a lovely school in a nice area. Everyone at the school was super friendly, and the principal seems to know almost every kid we encountered in the halls. The classrooms are nice (yay whiteboards) and the school has a lot to offer. I am excited. Still in shock that they offered me the job on the spot, esp since I am not fully certified.

    I was lucky--I just submitted about 10 applications last week and was gearing up to start looking seriously. I sure didn't expect it to be this easy. I wouldn't have listed this district as one of my top 3 choices and they pay slightly less than surrounding areas, but the school was fabulous. I have no qualms about signing and I think it is going to be a very supportive, great school to work at.

    I'm so excited. I can't believe they offered on the spot!!

    Yep, 9th grade. Personally, the 9th graders scare me a bit because they were harder to sub for; I would have rather had juniors and seniors. Many districts do Earth Science as an upper level elective. But, as a teacher, I think it is more beneficial to teach it early because you can introduce so many chemistry and physics and math concepts that the kids can carry with them as they move forward. It will be a challenge for sure.
