    I was offered a 3rd grade position at a private Christian school in the suburbs of Chicago!!! I was jumping up and down in the break room where I teach summer school!!! It's the job I've been praying for! It's a stable and growing school, which is a surprise in this economy! I got $24,000 in my old school and will be getting $33,000 at this new job including full medical, dental, and life insurance! I only have very very basic medical at my last job! AAGGHH!! I am soooo excited!!

    That is super and the fact that you are getting a pay raise is fantastic. Private schools are notorious for not paying well. I wish you all the best. How exciting!:):celebrate:

    I LOVED teaching in the Christian School I worked in - and pulling scripture references into lessons (connections).

    More like when can I go in and sign the contract...I'm so excited, but it doesn't seem official until I actually sign! Though, i have a load of stuff from my old classroom sitting in my apartment, my parents' basement, and my car! I can't wait to put it in MY new classroom!
