    Hi everyone. I have been trolling around on these boards for a while stealing ideas and getting some great information. I just completed my first year teaching in California in the 6th Grade. I was just told today I got my dream job, Kindergarten!! I will be one of only two male kinder teachers in the district. I am more than excited. For everyone else who is still looking. Keep the faith, miracles happen everyday.

    I got the official response yesterday.
    I taught 8th grade for two years.
    I moved in district (one interview, one canceled) to a second grade position. Can't wait for the change.

    I don't post much, mostly just browse, but I had two interviews over the last 2 weeks after applying for six positions here in So. California. Keep in mind I am only an intern and going to school for my California Single Subject math credential.

    I got the phone calls this morning from both districts I interviewed with offering me the jobs. I actually had the luxury of choosing which one I wanted over the other. I am truly blessed, but I have to say that I don't think I could have done it without your interview questions thread.

    That thread really prepared me for the interview questions I might see. I can truly say that in each interview I only had one question that I really wasn't prepared for. Every other question I was prepared with good responses.

    Thank you to the member who started that Interview Question thread. Good luck to the rest of you.

    Hi everyone-

    I can't believe I get to post here again. I just got offered another job closer to home and I'm going to take it. I hadn't signed the contract yet with the first district.

    I feel awful about giving a verbal "I'll take it, thank you so much!" and then backing out with the first district.

    The first job was spec. ed. high school English at an urban school with a pretty tough group of kids. I was honestly incredibly excited about it. But it's 40 miles away and I have two young children.

    This new job is spec ed 2-3 combo class for mild to moderate disabilities 15 miles from home at a beautiful new campus. I haven't met the principal or any teachers. My own girls will be in second grade, so I'll be teaching children who are right in their age group. The pay is better, the commute is far better, but the rest is totally unknown. I go in next week to sign a contract and go to orientation. I start Aug. 7. It happened so suddenly- one of my references was a personal friend who used to be the boss of the person in charge of hiring. He said she was insistent they hire me. I'm soooooo glad I volunteered to teach Sunday School with her! They called three times that afternoon with different job possibilities. This is the exact same group of people who initially refused to even take my resume at a job fair and turned their backs while I was talking.

    Very mixed feelings here. But incredibly grateful here in Southern California where everything was cut. I've been searching for months with basically no response. I'm an intern, too, going through a spec. ed. program at the local Cal State.

    Good luck everyone!

    Kippers. :)

    In answer to your question, Leighball, I'm not exactly sure, but I imagine it will be freshman algebra and/or sophomore geometry as that is all I will be qualified to teach for now. I'll need to pass a third math CSET subtest to teach anything higher.

    I want to thank all of the posters on this board for the advice--you are the most helpful, informed teachers I have ever met (well kinda met). Even though this is my first post I have read this thread religiously everyday since I started looking for a job. I have taken all the advice on this board and incorporated it into my job search (even though some of it seemed silly for a high school math teacher job interview) and it paid off! I was offered a position at my "ideal" high school yesterday--which I graciously accepted! Thanks all.
