Yay! Great news! Sending some extra positive thoughts your way!!!
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
Thanks for all the support
I guess I should update:
C- awaiting official openings- in the hiring pool- large, top rated school that pays REALLY well. 45 minutes.
F- pending- Charter. 60 minutes. Start-up. 2nd grade.
G- pending- Friend's school. Charter. 80 minutes.
O- I canceled
P-crappy job that I took-
R- pending- 90 minutes away- Title I Math Specialist Position
S-pending- online charter
T- pending- large public district- 60 minutes
U- passed on interview
V- passed on interview
W- 2nd round on Monday :woot: 15 minutes from home- my hometown's rival!
Hopefully W pans out--I'd hate to think what comes after X, Y, Z!

I hope you get this job!! You deserve it <3
Let's Go, W!
I should apply for jobs I have no intention of taking (or even interviewing) just to get us around to AA
No need - you're going to get the job on Monday .
Oh, I know
I just want the satisfaction of getting into double letters!!
I have a feeling that school W is the jackpot! Can´t wait to hear how it goes on Monday.

I officially didn't sleep. :yawn:
The job is still mine, though
2:30. I'll let y'all know how it goes!
Sending lots of positive thoughts!
Go for it, giraffe!
Can't wait to get the update on your new job
We're here for you either way!
Best of luck at the interview today!
Hope everything goes/went well today!!!!
Crossing my fingers that things went well!! Can't wait to hear!
Can't wait to hear how awesome you were at your interview!!
I feel the interview went well, but there is some bad news. They will be doing demo lessons 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.
Oh, I will know by noon tomorrow if I do get a demo lesson. Not sure yet.
Hope this all works out!
They should do demos like they do tryouts on America's Got Talent or So You Think You Can Dance
1) Go home (no job)
2) Choreography/another round (demo lesson)
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!
You are definitely going to need a mental health break after all this...lol...fingers crossed xx
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?
A good sign as you heard this evening, not noon tomorrow!
Awesome news, giraffe!! xxFingers crossed for a great lesson Wedxx!!
Not sure. Teachers report on Monday and Back to School Night is the 28th (Wednesday). So quick!
Hooray, DEMO LESSON!
What's the topic for the demo lesson? Have you done one before?
I've done two demo lessons before but they were both for math.
I can do any third or fourth grade writing standard.
Yay! That's so great ur doing a demo!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my goodness such a crazy, long process! Wishing you TONS of luck! Looking forward to reading your post saying that you got the job
