I was in the middle of teaching math to my half of students when the principal walks in and shows me the number 3 and pointing me. Being so early I have no idea what she's talking about and am like what? three times. Then she does says it.....I got the open 3rd grade position for next school year. I didn't know what to do...I wanted to run to the phone and call everyone I knew lol. But I just smiled and said thank you a million times. So yes my own classroom for next year...3rd grade. I was end up prob with a bunch of my 2nd graders and I have an interview today for a summer job that went well. I haven't had a day this good in forever

Awesome! That's great news! You are so lucky that you get to find out already. You will have plenty of time to prepare.

Fabulous! I'm probably moving down to 3rd next year. I want to loop with my 4th graders, but I doubt that will happen since all of the 3rd grade teachers are leaving.

Yay!! I so hope that I find out soon!!!! Our principal is waiting for the last 12 people on the displaced list for our county to be placed before she can make her final decisions.

Thanks everyone! I"m very excited because I taught 2nd and 4th this year. So I feel like I'll be able to teach 3rd grade well especially since I know where the 2nd graders will be at the end of the year and I know so many of them (we flex for math and use to for reading too). There is still a slight possibility something could happen with budget cuts but I feel a little safe b/c my school is a magnet and works a little different in the corp...plus if I get pink slipped so would a ton of other ppl at my school (it's generally a young, low seniority crowd)but I'm not going to think about that right now
