    The Principal just called me to tell me I got the teaching assistant job!!:D

    He said that he was blown away by me, and the wonderful things people said about me just affirmed what his instincts already saw. He said he is so excited about me being a part of his school and this district, and sees this only as a stepping stone for me within the district, that ultimately he sees me teaching and working my way up higher within it..that the sky is the limit, and he knows this is going to be a great partnership. He said we have the same philosophies on education, and that he is so glad I am still available and want the position, because anyone that were to have gotten me would be very lucky.:eek:


    So, now I am officially an *almost* teacher!

    Thanks so much for all of the well wishes and good thoughts!!

    TF- from the way things were looking in your posts last week I'm not surprised- it looked like it was just going to work out the way it did!! Congrats! The principal sees great things in you. Rise to the occasion- make yourself indespensible.

    Thank you so much everyone!!

    It is bittersweet in the sense that I wish we ALL had jobs on this board. I felt guilty sharing my good news. I am sending good vibes to all of you that are still looking...if it can happen for me, it WILL happen for you, too.:hugs:

    Awesome! Will you be certified by the end of this school year or do you have a lot longer to go? Hopefully when you're done you can switch right into a regular classroom position! Great big congrats!!!

    I just graduated from my two year college with an AA in Elem Ed.

    I have two more years to go in my cert program, unfortunately. :( But at the end of it, I will have both a BA and a Masters in Ed (Special combo degree program offering) and will, presuming I pass the Praxis II content, be certified for K-5 at the end of that.

    I am hoping my University allows me to use my current school and/or position for my field/student teacher requirement. That is the only monkey wrench I am worrying about. Oh, that and the fact that I am taking 18 credits each semester. :woot: I know, I am a crazy woman. :whistle: I figure if it gets too much to manage, I will cut back in the Spring semester. All but my Ed coursework is online, so I think I will be ok.
