I contacted my former p. about writing a reference for me. He has moved to a district over an hour away. He asked me if I would be interested in teaching at his school, as he has an opening. Now you know when a p. asks you that, you stand a pretty darned good chance of getting the job! Plus I loved working for this guy. One of those rare admins. who hasn't forgotten what it is like to teach. It is over an hour away, though, through a very congested area with heavy traffic. So looking at more like a 1.5 hour commute sometimes. And I have young children to consider. But...ouch. This type of irony really bites!
