    Well I'm thinking it is but let me hear your thoughts. I went for an interview yesterday for a 5th grade position. I just got an email from a coworker where I last worked (in a library) saying that the school called & talked to 2 of the supervisors (my references). Apparently my references gave "glowing ones". But this is a good thing, right? That they went ahead and called my references .. means they're interested?

    YES!YES!YES! They don't bother calling references unless they want to hire you. That is a really positive sign. I would venture to say that they are going to offer it to you. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you!

    I second that emotion! They wouldn't bother calling references if they weren't interested!! Now, be cool and collected when they call!!

    If you feel like givin' them your time and devotion!
    I second that emotion!

    well, I changed some words! :)

    Nobody calls references unless they are serious about hiring you.

    It is the final step before the drug test!

    Relax, breathe....and be patient.

    yes, I know...easier to say than do.

    Go clean something...that will take your mind off the wait!

    I would say that's an incredibly good sign! They aren't going to waste time calling the references of someone they aren't incredibly interested in and ready to hire...:)

    Wait, use that pen to get your questions together!

    Write out your list of questions, including:
    Do I get a mentor!!! Please?? If not, I can I meet a new teacher in my grade level at least?? On the same floor??
    paydays, first one OCTOBER!? (yes, that was my first one!)
    holidays, kids yes-teachers no? In-service is not a holiday for you!
    Sick days, how soon?
    Bring your canceled check! Direct deposit or die!!!
    Insurance? Yours, spouses, both? Which is better plan? Is your dr in their plan??
    Emergency phone numbers, bring yours and get theirs
    Call in procedures...exact number, and your exact excuse...do you expect to be out 2 days, get me a sub...I like Ms. Smith, thanks.
    Keys, count them! You get 20, you better bring back 20 or else!

    Sigh! This is so much fun!!!! We can't wait!!! :)
