    Remember I got a job and they started me out as a long term sub in Kindergarten? (even tho I was opening a new classroom and not subbing for anyone per se? )
    Well, I called human resources and he said they are interviewing for the position next week and I will be interviewed. There were over 600 applicants! Anyway, on a positive note, he said he has heard only good things about me from my school. Then the principal called me and said my interview is at 3:30 Tuesday, with her and another principal who is also hiring a K teacher (and I'm pretty sure has a long term sub in there now as well) I told her I hope I am not too wiped out because it will be right after class, I will probably have to stop and get a Starbucks! and she laughed and said don't worry! and bring me one!
    She's very nice, we get along really well. So, I'm interviewing to keep the job I have. I think I will bring clothes to change into and some interview questions to prepare beforehand. And get the Starbucks! I will let you all know how the interview went and if I get the job! I'm excited because I started to think "what if they keep me as a sub all year long because of the budget?" So, this is looking good. :)

    I bet if you bring some examples of the excellent work your children are already doing and programs you are implementing that would be a good idea.

    I think you will do great!

    Update! Interview went really well. I wasn't nervous at all. They smiled and nodded after each response and I think I nailed it. They said they will let me know tomorrow if I get the permanent position. Will post it here. Thanks for all your support on this forum. It's the best!

    :confused:WHY make you wait??? Oh well, I am glad it went so well.:) Why would they hire someone else when you think about it? I mean then he would have ANOTHER sub, right? :confused:And the parents would not be happy about another change in their children's lives and a change that might not stick... So, really.... they have to offer you the job or face the negative fall out from.... ME!:mad::mad:

    I didn't hear anything yesterday, and waited all day today. Then I thought I will call if I don't hear by the end of the day. And I didn't, so I called the HR director. He said the P was supposed to let me know. But.....(and here my heart sank) You got the job! My teacher pay will be retroactive to the day I started subbing, which was last Sept. 10th. YAY!!! I sign the contract the 13th, because will be board approved on Oct. 12th. :) :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
