    I am pretty sure I didn't get the job I had a second interview for yesterday. . .I am super disappointed. . .

    over 15 interviews this summer and nothing :(:(:(

    I never resigned from my current job I guess I am going back :confused::confused:

    I should be happy but the positive in the another year of job experience. . .It will be a new classroom and hopefully not as stressfull. . .

    Last year was challenging to say the least. . .:dizzy:

    new student success to celebrate

    The downsides

    I have spent the last two years commuting 150 miles round trip daily. With gas at over $4.00 gallon and the thought of another 30,000 miles on my car in 10 months. . .I am exhausted.

    I can't move away from my support system to assist me with my son. I would be totally alone in a new area so moving is not an option.

    possible 8% paycut midyear if a ballot measure does not pass

    another year of being a weekend single mother to my 10 year old with his own special needs and handling his IEP while on the road. . .

    The school year is changing next year so matter what next June I am going to trust God and walk away. I signed my contract so I have to make the best out of a bad situation.

    I will do my best and get better references and work on me :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I really feel for your situation. I wish I could give you words of encouragement.

    I hope that you still get the job. I was wanting to change positions this year, too. Teachers return on Monday, so the clock is ticking. I thought that I did well in my interview, but not good enough. I was pretty nervous!
    Fingers crossed for you! :)

    Maybe it will work out.

    If not, you are not alone. I, too, am going back to my old job after not finding a new one. I was trying to relocate because my support system is 750 miles away and I am over it. However, I am going to make this year A-M-A-Z-I-N-G so I can strengthen my online portfolio. Plus, I'm hoping to have at least 6 solid letters of recommendation. I have 4 now.

    My heart aches for you. Even though my situation wasn't nearly as pressing as yours (150 mi?!?) I wanted out of my last school BAD because I felt stuck. I only had 1 interview all summer and it didn't go well at all. I called my mom on the way home in tears. Or so I thought....I ended up getting the offer. What makes you think you've been written off? My fingers are crossed for you.

    I understand! I've applied for positions that I wouldn't normally want, just to leave my campus. I love the staff, but not the principal. The principal is only interested in his advancement and is sometimes very unprofessional. :(
