Yesterday, I got the call that I've been impatiently waiting for and accepted an 8th grade social studies position!!! I start new staff orientation today, and am signing my contract tomorrow. Thanks to all of you for your advice, kind words, and reassurance of hope during my job hunt. You have no idea how appreciated it all was and how much you helped in securing me my first job. To those of you still looking, keep your heads up. AND, seriously consider e-mailing Ps. I'm pretty sure that played a huge role in getting me this job. Again, thanks. I'm soooooo excited to start my first year!!!!
