    I got the job!!!! It was like a dream come true!

    I went into the interview yesterday at 3. The team had been interviewing all day and I was the last one. I felt like the interview was going very well and near the end the AP took me on a tour of the school.

    Halfway through the tour a teacher came to relieve the AP and send her back to the office. After the tour was over the principal and both APs took me back into the conference room and offered me the job! I was completely blown away! I was able to go straight into my room and am about to head that way to start setting up.

    I am a sixth grade math teacher! I could cry!

    To those of you still searching, just keep going. I had 7 interviews, sent out 100s of resumes, and put SO much time into the job search. I was starting to feel like it never would actually happen. With this interview it just clicked. Even if it feels hopeless, as Dory would say, "Just keep swimming." :D

    What a great success story. You are an inspiration to those still looking. There are jobs to be had. You just have to be willing to go the distance, put in the time, and keep the faith. It is tough, but oh so worth it! :):):thumb:
