    I went on an interview last Tuesday. This is at a school where I tutored this past semester. It's for a 5th grade position with 2 periods of Math and one of Lang Arts. They sent their two top names (there are two positions) to the HR director and he will make the call tomorrow before the board meeting so I will need to make a decision right then and there so that they can go ahead and board approve me (assuming I get the position). The job is 20 minutes away and lowest in pay of the districts I've applied to. I felt really good coming out of the interview. Normally I second guess my answers and w/ this interview I didn't. I just need thoughts and prayers that God will put me in the right place.

    :thanks:

    I'll send you some happy, job-getting thoughts.

    Are you prepared to accept the job on the spot when (!!!) it's offered?

    Cassie- I will probably go ahead and accept it. Its a great school, and the staff is wonderful to work with. And I can always try to get a job in Granbury next school year if I want to.

    INteacher-Thanks!

    I say, put on something nice, so you sound professional and feel good when you get the call. You want to be prepared for anything. He may say come in ASAP to sign contract! He may say something wasn't right, and you (being all professionally dressed) will quickly remind him why you are the best person, and change his mind or at least make him think about another opening!

    Be ready with paper and pen to get notes for the next step! Let us know...we are praying for you!

    Good luck.

    I too hope its to celebrate and I hope you get it. I understand that $$ is often an issue when choosing a place, but I think since you already said it would be a nice place to work at, that it can often out weigh the $$ issue. (Nobody would want to be paid big bucks and hate all the people they worked with every day)

    I wish you the best, I hope you find out soon, and that we can celebrate with you. I felt the same way as you did when I went on the interview for my job position--- I was more calm then then when I was going to the school to accept the position that I knew was going to be given to me. I'm sure if you get this that you'll learn alot and grow as a teacher and that's always a great benefit no matter where you end up teaching.

    stg, keep the faith and the positive attitude up! I'm in a similar situation, so I know how tough the waiting can be sometimes.

    Well, I didn't get the position, or at least I don't think I did. The board meeting is tonight in about 40 minutes and he hasn't even called yet. I'm sure its because I don't have the math certification the position needs.

    Gotta keep positive thoughts that my dream job is out there waiting for me to snatch it up this summer. If I don't then I will totally freak out.

    Never say never! So why aren't you camped outside the district office?

    I would be the up there every day right about now. "Hi! Remember me, I applied for the job! Can I be a long term sub? Any body need a secretary?"
