    On interview two. I received the letter in the mail yesterday. I haven't heard from interview one. She said she would be letting people know in a week. And that she would call either way. I have not had a phone call yet. I suppose I can email and ask. Also, I would like to send a second thank you letter to school two. Asking them to keep me in mind for future job openings.
    I'll work on those tonight. This morning I am going to work on sending out five more interview packets.

    I'd think they would be knocking your door down trying to get you to teach at their schools.

    Thanks everyone. I'm doing something I have never done before. I'm applying to two kindergarten positions that are not even posted yet!
    One at the school I worked at last year. And the other at Bf's mom's school. She is an aide there has been for 20+ years. The principal is new this year and really likes his mom. She said they are going to if the budget passes have all day K. So I'm sending a packet directly to the principal. I'm thinking about saying, something like I would love an interview for a kindergarten position if one becomes available.
    What do you all think?

    I'm also working on 10 more packets or maybe 12 I can't remember. I just know I want to be down here next year. Hopefully I will be planning a wedding for June 22, 2008.

    I think sending a packet directly to the principal is a good idea- and maybe the bf's mom can put in a good word for you too :) June 22nd, huh? My anniversary is June 26th- a good time for a wedding. Congrats and good luck!

    Jaime,

    Have
    Bf's mom write you a glowing letter of rec. I just had an interview because of a letter of rec. Sometimes, it's not what you know... it's Who ya know.

    JamieMarie -
    I too am job hunting again (for the 4th summer in a row, ugh!). So hang in there, and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE feel free to PM me if you need to talk. So far, I haven't had any interviews this time, but I hope it's still too early.

    A friend of mine had a rocky 1st year teaching (this is now about my 3rd year-but in all diff. places) and is also job hunting. The first place she gets an interview w/(the town she lives in) just called her to do a model lesson last week and 2 days later(after she swears she wont get anything but the LTS position her friend who works in the same school said they have) calls her to meet with superintendent. I'm happy for her, but I also can't help but feel sad because I haven't heard from anywhere yet. It's like when she cries she gets something, but when I cry I get nowhere. I haven't
    "cried"yet about not having a job for fall(I almost did but fought it). Last year she also had good luck getting a position while I got something I wasn't expecting that didn't end up working out and for the first part of the year I was a TA until I got LTS in my current district (unfortuantely they dont have any positions this year). :(

    So, please know you aren't alone, I know how it feels to have to job hunt and have your future be so uncertain.

    Again, please send me a PM if you ever feel "alone" or "frustrated" so to speak. I understand completely! :)

    Thanks Maithal,
    I think your situation is worse than mine. I have a job next year if I want it. I just want to be closer to home. I love my students, my aide, my cook and my bus driver they are wonderful people. I just miss my family. 230 miles is rather far away. I know other people have moved much further. But I did that once already. I lived in WA state 3500 miles away. I decided I didn't want to live that far away from my family. I am working on 20 resume packets right now. I should have tried doing one at a time. I've gotten myself into a huge mess on the couch, coffee table and floor. ACK! One at time would have been so much easier LOL.
    Good luck finding something.

    Well I have been engaged for nearly 3 years now, and I'm still scrambling to finish! There are just several things you cannot do until the end; plus, you cannot (as much as I wish you could!) force vendors and such to get back to you or get on it. I have actually enjoyed a long engagement; you really get to savor being "Engaged" :)

    Just this weekend I found out the woman that was supposed to do mine and everyone's hair, isn't doing it. Why? She didn't show up for our appointment to do my updo and highlights- no call, no email, nothing. How can I have confidence she'll come the day of?

    Just another day in the life of a woman planning for her big day haha.

    Let me know how your planning's going!
    :)

    Good luck on the job hunt Jaime. Are you applying around Maine, or is your family somewhere else?

    I'm a Maine native. I drew a big circle starting in OOB out. Basically applying an hour north, hour and a half inland and right down to Kittery. Also, applying in South Eastern NH.
