    I interviewed today for a 9th grade maternity leave position. The teacher knows me very well, because I student taught at her school and she used my mentor teacher's classroom during my lunch and prep. periods. So we'd talk a lot. :) Since she knew me and heard wonderful things from my mentor teacher, she wanted me to cover her leave and personally sent my resume to the K-12 English supervisor.

    I received a call in the afternoon from the supervisor, who said he was very impressed with my credentials and wants me to take the position. The leave is from December 10th til the end of March. Another English teacher is going on maternity in April and she already emailed me because she wants me to cover her classes too. So there's a solid chance I may be at this school til the end of the year.

    I'm SO happy, guys! I seriously thought I'd be a daily sub forever. The school is only 5 minutes away from my house, too. :thumb:

    Thank you! I think this will be a great experience, especially since I know all the 9th grade teachers and they are the most supportive group of people ever. I'm very excited.

    Great news! You may well end up in that school permanently. I know an awful lot of people who got in that way. My first job was a maternity leave, too, and they hired me for the following year.
