    I don't want to jump the gun, but you might think about your possessions in current school. I would hate for them to get wind of all this and you lose your stuff. Just something to think about!

    I've been thinking about this- trust me.
    Luckily, I've barely unpacked, so I do have that going for me. I'm sure I could be cleared out of the room in under 2 hours, and I if I had enough family helping, under an hour even. I'm going to take some stuff out to my car in the morning as well.

    Well, I had a slight hiccup. I planned on leaving early to go to the doctor and have him write me out for tomorrow, too. He has been my doctor since I was 5 and he delivered my sister. The interview is actually in the district his kids went/go to.
    However, I found out that my insurance dropped me. So that is a no-go.
    I played the headache card all day. I actually played it last week, too, because I wasn't sure of my strategy yet. I went to my P asking when we were getting insurance and talking about the headache I've had for 5-6 days now. I told her I really needed to go to the doctor, but I can't afford to, so I was wondering when I could make an appointment for. Now I will just call in in the morning and hope I don't get fired.

    At least getting fired would save you the awkward phone call you have to make when you tell them that you are quitting for your new job.

    I'll know in a few hours. Pretty sure I rocked it.
    I would have to start tomorrow, so things will move really fast.

    Several people on the panel told me that I did a good job.

    They had a last minute resignation so there are 4 jobs now and they brought 6 people in.

    Thanks!

    Honestly, I am currently most terrified of resigning today and getting all of my stuff out, too. Definitely not how I'd like to go (resign today), but I have to put myself first. This is a district that I could/would work in for life. The job I have now is totally not.
    I'd also be backed with a union. I've never been, but I've always had terrible teaching conditions.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH! I've just now gotten on, but I've been thinking about you non-stop since last night. 4/6 is SUCH good odds!!!!! Any idea when you might know? I would be a wreck. Like, sitting on the couch wanting to eat ice cream to celebrate but stomach in knots so I can't eat wreck. Is your mom able to distract you today? I'm figuring you have the rest of the day off??

    Sometimes these things are just too good to be true, but they are. That's how my job worked out. I just couldn't believe how everything fell into place. I'm hoping you get a call SOON!!!

    They said 3-4 hours. I've told my references to text me ASAP if they get a call.
    I'm home alone. Seriously contemplating going over to my cousin's house to distract myself with her 6 month old twins. She's at work, but my aunt is there with them.

    I originally wanted to do an elaborate lesson. I woke up yesterday morning and decided to do a more simple lesson- one that you would see in my classroom. I'm not a fan of the 'dog and pony show' and I never have been.

    In the debriefing after, I mentioned that I wanted to do a real lesson and not put on an act. They said then that that was what they are looking for.

    Well, when he called, he said that the others did do the elaborate lessons and they out-shined me. The lesson plan was written well, I was great with the kids, they just didn't see enough. I just don't understand. I really, truly don't.

    I hope they like the acts that they hired.

    You don't want to work for a school that rewards dog and pony shows anyway.
