    So, this morning my husband wakes me up and tells me the personnel director had called about a job and that the principal of the school called as well to set up an interview. So, I had an interview at 12. That's the quickest I have ever gotten ready as I found out at 11. I went to the school and met the principal who, by the way, is awesome! We talked and it was between me and another girl, who I know. lol. I told her I could show her all kinds of things and she said it really didn't matter. I really thought I wasn't going to get the job butttttttt she said that she was recommending me to the personnel director. She asked if I had any decorations for my room. I told her no so she sent me to a teacher store and let me spend $100!

    I didn't sign the contract yet as she had to fill out the papers and send it to the school board but I think I'll be signing it tomorrow. I am really excited but still nervous since I didn't sign the contract. I did get a whole bunch of stuff at the store though. I am doing a frog theme and there was loads of stuff there.

    When I told my mom i got the job, she started crying. lol. Anyway, I am not officially a teacher yet but will be signing those papers soon. It's for first grade by the way! YAYY!

    Awesome news!!! See, I knew this was going to be a good week :)

    PS: Don't be nervous about the contract.... I still haven't signed mine (my principal is on vacation) but if they gave you money for your classroom, that is a pretty strong sign.

    Thanks everyone. I have soooo much to do and don't know where to begin. School starts next Friday and orientation is before that so, yea, freaking out about that a little bit. But at least I don't have to go to any more interviews. Now, I have to start doing stuff!

    I will definitely start making a list. It's sooo overwhelming. I went from being desperate to finding a job and thinking that I was going to have to move 250 miles away to having a job and thinking of all the 80 billion things I have to do. I can't wait to get in my room and decorate it!

    merigold, I student taught at a district adjacent to the district I got the job in. I had applied to those 2 districts with my hopes that I would get into the district that I got the job in. It pays better and put a lot of emphasis on technology which I love. I had been pestering the personnel director so each time a job would become available, she would set up the interview for me. She did the same for this job. I also went to school in this district and love it! Elementary and middle school were wonderful and I distinctly remember how much I loved going to school and loved the teachers. Incidentally, the personnel director was my 8th grade reading teacher.

    Congratulations on the new job, FootballGal! Don't worry about the contract; if they gave you money to spend you have the job (I haven't signed my contract yet, either, but they have already asked me where they should send my sign-on bonus check to).

    thanks, jessica. I figured since she game me the money to spend that she was serious when she said I had the job. I have had an experience where I was recommended for the job but didn't get it but they never gave me money to spend. When she called the store to tell them I was coming, she said she had a new teacher who needed stuff so I know I got the job but I still can't believe it. The contract just makes it official. I can't wait to sign it!

    That's very awesome--- I wish it would have taken my school that quickly to give me an answer. I had to wait a few weeks because of spring break.

    Considering that she gave you money already to go buy classroom decorations, that's an excellent sign that you have the job and will be signing papers soon.

    they still haven't called for me to go sign the contract. Even though I know I got the job, i'm getting nervous. I tried calling but no one answered. I know they are busy but don't they know that I'm dying over here! lol

    Don't worry about signing the contract. It takes forever at our school. Secretaries are busy getting the first day of school lined up, enrollement and all the first of school details.

    Ask to get into your room and start getting ready.

    lol thanks everyone. The personnel director emailed me and told me to go in tomorrow morning to sign all the stuff. I have to bring all kinds of things with me like my birth certificate and marriage license , the problem is... uhhhh.. I think I lost them. lol. I know there are somewhere in this house I just have to find them. When we moved, we had so much stuff that I just started putting everything into boxes. Sooo now I have to find them. I am so very excited. After I do the paperwork tomorrow, I plan on going to my room. I need to get into it since school starts next friday with orienation on thursday. Once again, thanks everyone for all the well wishes!!
