JOB!!! I'll be teaching fifth grade! So this is a majorly long story but I have to share it! So many of you know I had an interview today for the science lab position. That went soooooo well. She loved my lesson plans. She gave me a tour of the classroom and then took me back into her office and basically wanted me to commit to more than a year. I think I may have written this on another post...Anyway, basically these past three years, the teachers leave after a year. The teacher that was hired for this position left right after school began and the kids have had a sub ever since. So I leave from the interview feeling okay.... Then I get home and my Clincal Educator from ST texts me and says a P is calling about you...I'm shocked...I text back asking her the P's name. She has the name wrong but she says Mr. So I look at the website and turns out it is for the 3rd grade interim. Now, others are calling me to let me know they're checking my references. Now I'm getting really conflicted feelings about this but decide to wait.. About 3:30 the P from the 3rd grade interim calls me to offer me the job. I accept but then tell her what is going on with the full time position. She says call the P and see where you stand and explain the situation. Call me or come in tomorrow around 10 to sign papers. Okay so I call the P about the science position. I explain why I'm calling and ask, "What are my chances of getting an offer?" I also apologize if it sounds unprofessional. She said she understood and my chances were very, very, very good but she still had one interview left and wanted to be considerate of that other applicant. Okay...Now I pretty much know I'll be offered the position unless the other applicant is totally awesome. I call hubby...he doesn't pick up. I call my mother in law and tell her what is going on. Start crying because I'm conflicted. Head says take the full time, heart says take the interim. She calms me down and then I say I just need to call hubby. Try him again and nothing. Call my CE again to tell her I have an official offer. While on the phone with her the P calls from the science lab school...and says, "It is funny how things work out. How do you feel about fifth grade? I say, " I love it." She proceeds to tell me that she has an opening, not an interim but a full time position. I say are you making an offiicial offer...she says yes...I say I accept. She says she is holding the teacher's letter of resignation in her hands right now! I'll teach every subject except math! I"M GONNA BE A FIFTH GRADE TEACHER!!!!! So now the vacancy will be posted...oh I should check to see if it already is...It has to be posted for 5 days. Then, she can officially hire me. She says I have her word that I have the job. She says use these five days to get classroom materials, etc. together. And I need to have a physical and a TB test. She'll keep me in the loop about things. : ) What a strange twist today took! Let this be hope for all of you out there. This is a year round school that started July 16! My kids are on a traditional calendar and they're fiinishing up their 4th week.
