    I was called by a private school and informed that if a few more children register I would be invited on as a third grade teacher. What are my odds of obtaining this position considering school begins this week?

    Students make the switch to private school all the time (right before school starts when they get their class list, soon after public school starts, etc). Just keep up the positive attitude and hope it works out. But don't stop looking elsewhere until you have the position.

    I used to work as an administrative assistant at a private school and we always enrolled new students right before school started. Saturday night before school started on Monday, I enrolled lots of new students whose parents came to the open house. Then we would have a few come in the first few days of school. Good luck and I hope you can get on there. I loved working at this private school.

    We always have people signing up last minute. Drives the secretary NUTS! I never finalize anything with my gradebook or student numbers until the first day of school is over because there are usually additions.
    Fingers crossed, you never know.

    We get new students even the first week of school. Fingers crossed for you!
