    I got called yesterday for 2 interviews. One is an 8th grade social studies in a school about an hour away, I'd commute and be thrilled with the job. The second school that called the interview for my dream job. 6th grade in my home district, the same district, grade level AND subjects I student taught in a few years ago. I've been doing EVERYTHING I can to even get an interview in this district for 3 years now...I NEED this to go well, so wish me luck! (The 8th grade interview is tomorrow the 6th grade one is next week.)

    The 6th grade position is only interviewing four people. I'm the first, the rest of the interviews are all the same day as mine. I'm so nervous, but this will be my 7th middle school interview of the season, so hopefully all my other interviews will just work as practice for this one!

    Knock 'em dead Alisha!

    But don't discount that other job. "Dream jobs" have a funny way of surprising you appearing out of the blue. Tomorrow's interview may be a "dream job" in disguise.

    Oh I won't! The only thing I really don't like about that job is the hour commute, like I said I'd still be thrilled to have that job. Maybe I'll get lucky and have to choose between offers...that might be hoping a little too much though. :)

    Good luck!!!! Congrats on getting both interviews :)

    Surprisingly, long commutes can be okay...I love having the time in the car to think about what I need to do when I get to work and then on the way home, it gives me time to decompress from my day so I don't drive dh crazy! :) (my commute is currently 45 mins)
