    I guess this week could be considered a make or break week.... The school that interviewed me last week should be making a decision very shortly.... The one that is closer may have already called to set up interviews last Thursday and I might have missed out. That would be upsetting since I had an inside person giving my name to principals. Of course, the superintendent chooses who to interview so who knows how much influence the P's really have. I was chosen by the super to interview at one school and that position went to my friend.... So who really knows if I will get another interview in the same system.

    I woke up early in anticipation of phone calls from anyone anywhere and so far nada..... I'll be getting on sub lists soon if nothing pans out..... I'm feeling numb just waiting for something to happen.

    Good luck...I'm on my way to an interview now. I hope you can find a position that doesn't have the word sub in front of it :)

    I know it's hard not to, but don't loose out hope yet. At least around here, school doesn't start until another month. There is still time plenty of time. It is a good sign that you guys are getting interviews.

    Just remember that anything can happen - all the way up to the last minute! I was hired, after being quite dejected after another tough summer of no luck, the Friday before the teachers reported, and then had to move that weekend. Don't lose hope!

    We all understand how you feel. It's the worst feeling. I'm feeling like that right now too. It makes me physically and mentally tired. We are all here for you! Good luck to you!

    Monday and Tuesday has come and gone with nary a whimper... No call with an offer..... No call for an interview...... I guess I can go to tomorrow's board meeting to find out who got hired for the position. Maybe they didn't hire anyone and will interview after the meeting? Nobody knows and this waiting around stuff really is getting to me..... I didn't think the competition for math teacher jobs would be so fierce! I'm literally the last one of those I know that were non-renewed who doesn't have either a job offer to accept or a job!!! Consider that there are newbie graduates and those also hoping to get back in, maybe I shouldn't be surprised!!! This summer has really sucked.....

    Keep your head up and keep pushing forward! (Besides, you never know what still might come from those two jobs!)

    Went to the board meeting. They filled the position with a transfer. Not sure if that creates an opening because I think I heard the board say they hired a math teacher to replace the transfer. This "important week" has been a disaster.

    Follow up (if you want) with them, brush it off, apply for more positions...keep your head up! Something will come around. Sorry about the frustrations in the meanwhile, though :/
