    I was pink-slipped in May, and was pretty resigned to the fact that I wasn't going to be rehired, as school starts August 12th and I'd heard nothing.

    That was until yesterday at 5:30! I was offered and accepted a
    5th grade position- the same grade I have taught for the past two years!

    I am hoping that many more of you receive "the call". Keep the faith.

    Congratulations Picacbo. It will be a new experience in a new school but at least it's the same grade so you know what to expect.

    Mrs. Bran and katrinkakat: I teach in the Twin Rivers Unified School District which covers areas in Sacramento, North Highlands, Rio Linda, Del Paso Heights, and some additional surrounding areas.

    What districts did you teach in last year?

    I'm still hoping, but not optimistic. I was pink slipped and now have accepted a teaching offer 1 hour from my house, but would break contract in an instance if I knew I had a job back at my home school....

    Congrats to you !!!

    Mrs.Bran and Katrinkakat-I'm in California and the district I sub for started the year last week with vacancies all over the place, they are recalling teachers like crazy. Hopefully it will be the same when your districts start up. Now if only they would recall all of the teachers and then hire me...:lol: I don't think I'll hold my breath on that one.

    Congrats Picabo!
