    Praying for you, that God may open up a classroom specifically for you this school year, so you can be a BRIGHT light for Him! Hang in there.

    I just got another call for an interview that is three hrs away. But the funny thing is the Principal called from the next town over. So I had to go online to see where the school she said the interview is for was located. Wouldn't it be funny if I only had to interview with her right here in my home town! I'm still in Naples working at the restaurant for one more day before I head back to the ocean home.
    I made 67 today so not to bad for a crappy station.

    Still waiting for the call from the town I would love to work in.

    Wow JM...I give you credit for searching far and wide. Three hours away!! Great that you're getting so many calls. I think you're on a lucky streak.

    Thanks everyone. Well the time for Friday interview is 12:30. I think we may drive up and spend the night! Wouldn't that be cool.
    BTW did I mention I went to HS with the principals son? And was a long term Ed tech in a class her daughter taught. How funny is that?

    Oh I already did, she said she wouldn't ask them about me because that wouldn't be fair. She was very easy to talk to.

    I received the call from the principal today for the second grade. I didn't get that one. They hired someone with 8 yrs of experience. He did tell me I did a wonderful job at the interview and that if I do that at my other interviews I will get something.
    I also called the all day K school the other principal recommended me for, we will call him Principal M said he just starting to review the applicants and will get back to me.
    So I am praying the interview won't be on Friday or Monday!
    Hoping for this Tuesday, Wed or Thursday.
    That is the update for Monday haha.
    Have to bring the dogs for a walk.

    Thanks Munchkin how have you been? I noticed you were not on here for a while. I was hoping that you got a job and have just been way to busy to be on.

    Thank you nasimi77. I guess after two yrs of searching I have become rather persistent huh LOL.
    This position would be a dream position. It is all day kindergarten. Is only 20 mins from where I am living now, and 40 mins from my mom's home.
    It is also a read first school. I am so interested in the read first program. I am hoping they like me so much they hire me on the spot! I have never seen that happen but hey I can wishful think right.
    Well I should get going. I am going to run down to the beach and go over interview questions. My hopefully one day mother in law and the kindergarten teacher she works with is down there.
    Wow I'm rambling. Guess I am excited.

    Persistance really does pay. I think it's also wonderful you are already invisioning yourself getting the job, that is terrific, keep it up! :D The fact you are also enthusiastic about their reading program is also great! :) I was a waitress for 6 years btw so kudos to you for that one as well. Tough work, but it pays the bills! Please keep us all informed on what happens. :D

    Thank you everyone!
    I'm a little nervous but not like I have been in the past. I think I am more excited than nervous. The principal at the school I work at this summer (also grade 2 i applied for last Thursday) told me to memorize all my notes. So that is what I am working on right now. I may bring them but not use them. I think just having them makes me more confident.

    I am starting to think I am crazy 105 applications that I have mailed. That doesn't include the online ones. I think I have spent at least 150 dollars at the post office! I could have bought so much stuff.
    Oh well.
