Alright, I'm being stupid and I know it but I'm starting to get irritated with my school!!!! I interviewed for a 3rd grade position on Friday at 10:00 and they told me that they wanted to know by the end of the day but they weren't guaranteeing anything until Monday. I didn't hear by Friday so now I've been going over everything in my mind all weekend long. I've worked there for 2 years. Not only have I been a para-pro at this school but I've also been a Jr. High Track coach, summer library program coordinator, and after school program teacher and aide. I also got a huge group of people to come out and help with the playground build that we did in August. I KNOW that they did not interview anyone with as much experience at this school as I have because I'm the only aide that got an interview and I am the only person (sub, para, or otherwise) that has done this much!!!! SO WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG?!?!?! Seriously, in my mind, this decision should be a no-brainer! They can't afford to hire anyone with more than one year experience (I've never officially taught before). And the more I think about the possibility that they may not hire me, the more it makes me sick. They know that I've wanted a job for years and both my super and principal are references of mine and have both written letters of rec. for me. The more I think about it, the more upset I get. If I can't even get a job in a school where they know me and my teaching abilities, what am I going to do with myself?!?!?
