    Today I got phone calls setting up not one, not two but three interviews!! Holy Toledo! Perhaps one of them will be the one. Two are for 3rd grade and one is for Kindergarten (which I absolutely despised doing as a LTS). Two are tomorrow and one is on Weds. When it rains, it pours.....

    I'm so excited! I think I'll mow the yard.

    Best of luck to you!!! They always say things happen in three. Hopefully one of these is "the one".

    good luck MAT!

    try hard to think of something funny during the kdg interview. Don't ruin your chances by thinking of your sub job!!! It can be a whole new ballgame, because it will be your room, and YOUR kids.

    besides, today's kdg could be anywhere from 4-7 years old! that's a big difference and wide range of abilities & personalities!!! You may have your own bathroom, sink, and a really good aide. And a room close to the office. And plenty of mentor/team teacher help, and prep time.

    A good group of kids makes a bad school and district work for me. A bad school will work with good kids and decent district.

    Of course if, all three are bad, you have to have lots of imagination!

    But remember, subbing is not an accurate account of what they are like all the time....

    Two down one to go!! I totally nailed the first one. Both are expecting to make decisions by Monday. I'm writing thank-yous now. I think that I would be happy with either place.

    I think you should start now deciding which of the three job offers you want to accept. :)

    Why all of them, of course! :rolleyes: One director told me, "You will spend one week with this class, and then go over to the other site the following week." :eek:

    I am so jealous! We want sloppy seconds! Packing as I type. Coming to help you set up your room. New part time gig. Will set up classrooms for food! :lol:

    btw... has anyone ever thought to tell an employer..

    Thanks, I have selected another position, but.. my friend can really use a job, and she is a great person for this position!

    I did that once. And you know, she never really thanked me! :unsure:

    Thanks everyone!

    It feels like I'm going on a bunch of first dates right now. One P told me that he had around 120 people applied. He said my cover letter was impressive. The other P told me 200 had applied. I just had to ask what made you want to interview me? She said it was because I emailed and walked in my resume.

    Tomorrow is another day with an interview for 3rd grade. I feel really grateful that I'm actually getting interviews.

    sounds like a plan to me.

    Dear interviewer,

    Thank you for considering me for the position. I am excited about being on staff with ABC school district.

    I want you to know that the journey to find this position was not something I did alone. I have found a wonderful teacher's forum, that has a great deal of educators who are well-qualified, and seeking employment.


    Hey.. I just got an idea...

    Maybe we could ask Amanda if she could create something like this? A job seekers/job posters forum.

    Potential employers can pm us, and we can contact them directly!

    Only if they can see the job seeker/job posters forum... and not the other posts where we rant and rave, as my mom would say!! And tell jokes! :rolleyes:

    or is this already here.. and nobody told me?
