    I got a call today after just sending out a resume packet yesterday!
    Actually I sent out three. I realized there were 3 very small districts around here (within 30 min) that I never applied to. So I put together packets and my husband mailed them for me yesterday. I got a call today, and they had just received my packet and can I come in for an interview tomorrow? This district has 3 elementary schools, and they started August 10th. So I am hoping they have an immediate opening!
    I will let you all know tomorrow after the interview how it went.
    All he said was "I understand you are interested in a position at our school. I was wondering if you could come in tomorrow for an interview?" I'm hopeful!! :)

    Congrats! That's how I got my job Monday. A teacher moved to a curriculum leader Friday afternoon. So the principal found out Fri night/Sat morning....they had a teacher in place to do the job I"m doing now. They reassigned her to the new open position Monday am and then I interviewed right after that..

    Good luck...sounds greats, one of those right time place things :)

    Great interview! I loved the director who interviewed me and the school district and the d.o. staff. They hired me as a fully credentialed sub and there will be at least 4 permanent teacher openings within the next few weeks. If they like what they see I can interview for those spots. But in the meantime, I am filling out tons of paperwork and getting fingerprinted. Thanks for all your good vibes everybody :)

    WONDERFUL NEWS!!!!

    Congrats for NOW...and best wishes for Later!!!

    *****

    Side note... about the word "friend".

    Oh how I agree with you. Once while student teaching...and having been put in my place (my teacher britches had been a little TOO big, and i bit off more than I could chew. I was put back into place, firmly-but fairly, by one of my cooperating teachers. I felt terrible. And I felt I blew my rapport in the school.

    Then came lunch time and my cooperating teacher asked sometimes along the lines of "will you be joining the team for lunch, my friend?" And with that one little word...my shadow-world brightened up.

    Because it meant SO much to me, I have taken to using the word more often. Maybe some see it as old-fashioned. But MAYBE, there is that one person who NEEDS to hear it ...right THEN!

    I absolutely agree. What a wonderful word... friend.

    Congratulations Kat! We are so proud of you. This permanent position you talked about... Is that a permanent sub job or an actual classroom job with kids? In any event, you are a shoe in for anything that they offer you. You rock. Thank goodness, you can now SHOW how wonderful you are with kids!:hugs:

    I agree! I remember a good friend always using that expression and it always warmed my heart. I'm sure that's where I got it from!
    Thanks for the good wishes! :love:

    Yes! Permanent classroom openings. He showed me the numbers in each classroom and how he will most likely need to hire a second grade teacher, a fourth grade teacher and a fifth grade teacher within the next couple of weeks. He will post them online, but will look at the credentialed subs he has hired first. At least that's how I think he explained it. At any rate, he said Congratulations and welcome to our district. He said he never hires anyone right on the spot like that, but he has a good feeling about me, and he can tell about people right away. So, it's a start! Thanks for your wonderful words! :)

    WOW kat~you must have made a wonderful impression on him. I am glad for you and I hope that you get one of the positions. Are you the only credentialed sub in the school?

    I believe there are lots of credentialed subs. A nearby district still has 70 displaced teachers, and of course there is LA Unified with their hundreds of laid off teachers. Another district here had so many credentialed subs that they created categories of substitutes, two with full credentials, and two with just a bachelors degree and cbest test. :)

    Yes, I do!! Thanks SCTeachInTx! And I found out Friday about 3 new openings right by my house! (So close that one is walking distance, and one is 5 minutes drive away!) So tomorrow I'm going to apply for those. One is Kindergarten, too! My favorite grade!
