    Because I *finally* got a job!!!!!!!!!

    And I mean this in the sincerest, most heart-felt way possible - if it weren't for everyone on here, I would have given up by now. You all are the BEST for your kind, encouraging words!

    THANK YOU!

    I'm jumping up and down for you!!!!

    And in honor of this momentous event, I'm actually going to run to the bathroom, as I've been putting that off for the last two hours of teaching and all that jumping has brought me to the breaking point.

    Congrats!!!

    7th grade LA! I'm so excited!

    I had gotten SO frustrated - the application process was a nightmare, I hadn't gotten calls, and I'd had one interview that was only set up *after* I spoke to the P's secretary. That interview... was a totally bust and it was a school I was really interested in. So I called a few schools this morning, left messages, no one called back... moped around and felt sorry for myself... then got my butt in gear and decided to drop off my resume and cover letter at the schools that i hadn't heard from. I walked it in to the first school, they had me wait for the sec., she had me wait for the P to look at it - and he interviewed me on the spot! I didn't think it went too well, but he called me back a couple of hours later and offered me the job!

    I am so happy to see this post!! Happy dance! Happy dance!

    And, yes, we need details.

    Oops. That's what I get for posting before reading the 2nd page. That is one of the coolest hiring stories EVER. This time next year, that story will be near mythical and will be repeated to bolster flagging spirits.

    That is so cool! Go you!

    That's a success story! Aren't you glad you took the initiative to just go out there? You never know when your day will come but it rarely comes knocking on the front door! Good for you for going out and getting your job! And L.A. will be awesome!
