Great news, I had an interview today for a vocal/general music position, and am signing the contract tomorrow! A teacher in the area had to resign on short notice (I believe it had something to do with her husband's job)...needless to say the district was looking to fill the position quickly. I gave the Principal a call right away, emailed my materials, and had an interview. I also went to college with the Band Director there (who put in a few good words for me as well), so I'm sure that helped. I am very excited right now! I am just glad I did not give up on the job search once school started. I wanted to post and encourage everyone to keep checking online postings and talking with other teachers regarding positions. You never know when something will open up on short notice...it could be your lucky day if you are in the right place at the right time! My entire weekend is going to be lesson planning...I've got a lot of catching up to do!!!
