I had my final interview today and was offered a job!! I will be the new reading/writing teacher for grades 1-5. I don't get my own classroom, but the principal told me I'm next up at bat if a teacher leaves (which he thinks a 3rd grade teacher will be). Since it's a charter school, the people who fund it send all the new teacher to a week long orientation in Grand Rapids, MI. I'm really excited about all this. Now I need to get started on my planning.
