So I interviewed for a position that I have successful experience in. I had round 3 on Monday. Round 4 is the final one and is with the Superintendent and that's what I'm waiting on. They said they will approve the new teacher at the next board meeting which is end of next week. Now this school has put me in this available classroom for the last week to "observe". I love being in the room and I am starting to get attached to the kids. I have so many ideas for the classroom and it's hard to just sit back and follow the current substitute teacher. I'm really happy to be in there but I am also confused. The principal said the job is down to me and another person. I've been waiting almost 5 years to get back into teaching and this is just killing me. They are being careful because the previous teacher did a poor job and quit out of nowhere. I totally understand their frustration but I also just want to know. I would hate for the kids to have me for so long and then I would just vanish and another person comes in. It's not fair to them. I tried to talked to the principal the last two days but she had already left the building. How would you feel in this situation? What would you do?
