    Crossing my fingers for you, hoping you get out of that place, it sounds toxic.

    Our Walmart just put self checkouts back in, and you can dump the coins in instead of feeding them one at a time. I took the opportunity to spend some of the change I had ;)

    I feel the interview went well, but there is some bad news. They will be doing demo lessons :tired: That means if I make it past this round, I will have to come up with yet another way to miss work :( :( :(

    There was a 3-5 panel and a K-2 panel. They were set up a different schools. They brought the K-2 panel over to the other school for myself and one other candidate. So I actually interviewed in front of 15 people. It is in my favor, since I am still being considered for all the open positions. The K-2 people were off to the side and they did not ask questions.
    I know 3-5 has 3 openings and they will bring 5 in for demo lessons. Pretty decent odds.
    It just puts me in a pickle :(
    The only good thing is that I haven't yet taken a sick day. I'm tempted to get my doctor to write me out for several days.

    They should do demos like they do tryouts on America's Got Talent or So You Think You Can Dance

    3 options

    1) Go home (no job)
    2) Choreography/another round (demo lesson)

    OR

    3) You're going to Vegas! (the classroom)

    Fingers crossed for a demo! And then I think a mental health leave for a day or two (or several as you suggested) is in order :). I'm sure your doc would agree working under your current conditions is not good for your health!

    I got the demo lesson. It is on Wednesday.
    I am prone to migraines. I'm going to go into work, try to get a doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon, and get a note that excuses Wednesday as well. I'll drop it off on my way back home. This way I won't even have to call in.

    This is all going to happen. With the demo on Wednesday, what is the timetable for the final decision?

    I've done two demo lessons before but they were both for math.

    I can do any third or fourth grade writing standard.
