    I was just offered a LTS position. Starting SOMETIME in October. Going for a min of 6 weeks, a max of 12. That's the good news.

    The quasi-...unexpected news is that it's an EC-morning/K-afternoon.

    MUCH younger than I prefer...But it's an IN (at least for a bit)! FINALLY!

    It's at a school where I interviewed for that guided reading position, and got along with the principal. (A while back I had 3 interviews in a day...this is interview 3). I would be working with a co-teacher/partner...and I was given the teacher I would take over for's e-mail address to start collaborating.

    Huh. Not at all what i expected...but a start.

    Yay McK. I know this isn't what you wanted, but it sounds like a good foot in the door is what is needed for these elementary jobs.
