I've been trying all summer to get a position somewhere... and earlier this summer I'd e-mailed every principal in three of my targeted school districts. I sent them my resume and a cover letter, and thought they'd disappeared into the ether because from most most I didn't get a response back... Today I got a call from a principal that just had a last-minute kindergarten opening! She's not sure if she can interview me yet since I'm just starting my program (she has to check with HR), but I passed the content exam and am considered "Highly Qualified" under NCLB... she wants to interview me tomorrow, if possible! She's also going to try and convince them to let her hire me (if all goes well in the interview) because she needs to fill that position fast! I even made it very clear I didn't have experience in a formal classroom setting (because that's been one of my biggest hurdles) and she still wanted to talk to me. Don't lose hope. And please, please, please, cross your fingers for me.
