    Well- we decided not to move after all (bad housing market, unforeseen family issues, etc.) so I decided to stay at my current school but switch out of SpEd. Now I'm just waiting to talk about and decide which grade I'm going to! It will probably be 2nd or 3rd with a small change of K. Good luck and congrats to everyone!

    Well...updated news for me.

    Today I went and took a tour at an elementary school in the school district I signed the letter of intent for. I didn't realize that the principal wanted to hire me for a pre-k position. Well I went to the district office and told them that I wanted to take the 1st grade position. So I'm for sure getting the job although lemonhead already put me as getting the job, but it is for sure! yay! When I talked with the district office they were all very nice and said for sure I have a job in the district. So the planning for next year begins! If you have taught at a new school when it first opened...contact me! I'm wondering on what to expect. Thanks! :love:

    Yes...I've started a list of things I need to do. Whenever I have a thought I write it down immediately.

    Are there any good threads of this site for planning a classroom?? I have Harry Wong's book and I've pulled it out to start reading. Can anyone suggest another book to help new teachers plan?

    Thanks!!

    I've been looking for a K-5 teaching position since March

    I just started looking for a job in NJ. I sent about 20 resumes to different school districts. I had an interview last week and it went well. I hope that things will work out for me and others.

    I accepted a few days ago but I'm still just shocked. As luck would have it, I got another called yesterday from the district that pays a little more. But seriously, I'm glad to have an offer & be done with interviews & job fairs, blehhh

    I will definitely be looking to you guys for guidance. I also made contact with a teacher who works for the district. She had lots of positive things to say about the district & offered guidance.

    It always seems that once you accept an offer, schools come out of the woodwork to talk to you! I'm glad that you are happy with your decision and that the teacher speaks highly of the district. That's always nice!

    Thanks STG, now I am so nervous/scare. I feel like I am in a different zone/dimension. Can't explain.

    That's something that really put me at ease--- talking to the retiring 5th grade teacher. I'm sure she'll be a huge help to me and I'm glad God has given me such a mentor :angel:
