    I had an interview yesterday with the Elementary School Prinicpal the School DIrector. It went really well. The position is for Elementary PE teacher (p/t) and I have the option of being the Elementary Athletic DIrector for Intramural sports at the elementary level. They sent me off to get fingerprinted ( a good sign, don't you think) and for a tb test on Monday. I was supposed to be called back yesterday with the compensation that they were going to pay me but the call didn't come. I know that they also had accredidation meetings yesterday so I am not surprised the call didn't come. My son is excited that I may be teaching at his school.

    I am glad the interview went well. I would give them a call on Monday. Tell them you really enjoyed the interview and thank them for having you in. Ask if there are any questions they have that didn't get answered.

    update..

    Friday I went and had my fingerprints done. Today I went to get the TB test (ouch!) done. The Principal called me today to let me know he is giving the recommendation to the school board (it's a private Christian school) at tonight's meeting. So maybe I will know for sure tomorrow. I promise as soon as I find out, I wiill let everyone know! The suspense is killing me!

    Usually when they give the recommendation it's yours! I was "hired" before the school board approved it and was even told to start spending my money from the school. That was fun. Hopefully you'll get it! I'm crossing my fingers and praying for you.

    I wish

    that I could watch! But it's a private school so I doubt that it's on tv....Patience was never my virtue but I guess tonight it will really be tested!

    couldn't sleep

    so here I am at 6:00...still patiently waiting for school to open in 2 1/2 hours! I guess I will have to start writing that paper for my testing class just to keep my mind off why that darn phone hasn't rung! I hope everyone has a good day!

    and still I wait!

    Now it's 1:00...and no phone call! I have never been a very patient person but today....wel, we just won't go there. Maybe I will hear something soon. You know how yoour mind starts playing tricks on you? You start thinking "well, they would've called by now so I didn't get it". I'm trying to be positive tho...ring phone ring!

    The latest update is....

    I GOT THE JOB!!!! :D I just got off the phone with the Principal and I am now the k-5 elementary teacher and the official elementary intramural director. I will be training for the rest of this week and I start officially on Monday. It's 10 hrs a week as pe teacher and about 5-7 a week for the director. I never saw myself as a pe teacher but it gets my foot in the door..and I haven't even finished college yet! I am soooo excited...and nervous. A million questions are going through my head and I am sure I will post them all in the next few days.
    Wish me luck!
