    So, as most of you know, I moved suddenly and am now searching for a new job. In the interim, I've been waitressing to make ends meet. So, I was chit chatting with a customer today and the fact that I'd just moved and was a teacher looking for work came up. The guy asked all sorts of questions, which started sounding an awful lot like interview questions. Turns out, the guy was a priest at a Catholic school, and told me I should come up this week and put in an application. I'm pretty sure I was interviewed without my knowing it :lol:.

    mmswm- when we moved to NJ from Virginia, my husband was at church signing up for CCD for the kids, etc...he mentioned that I had taught Catholic school and they said they were looking for a K teacher. I went for the interview 2 days later and had the job. Sending you good thoughts!!:love:

    I like him already. It sounds as though he knows what he's looking for in a teacher, and knows how to spot it.

    This is wonderful MM. What a story you will have to tell if this turns out to be "the job".

    I agree! It sounds like a Divine Connection.

    This is why I teach my kids to be kind to everyone. You never know who might know someone who knows someone who knows someone. There was a certain realtor (a friend of my friend) who was ugly to me once. My first thought was "If I ever sell my house, I know who NOT to call." You just need to treat people right, whatever their walk of life (or your perception of it) because you just don't know...

    Hope your job search ends soon!

    Best to you.

    Good luck, mm!!

    I was taking some certifications test today, 2 of them. There were two other women who were taking two as well. We ended up talking. Turns out one has worked in a neighboring district for 10 years and one just got hired at the same district. We exchanged numbers and they said they would give me a call if they heard of anything opening up.

    He certainly must have liked your answers or he would not have invited you to come and apply. I believe in Divine Intervention.

    What I like about this story is that MM is a good person and obviously a hard worker no matter where she is. She took a job as a waitress and rather than acting like it was beneath her, she apparently took to it seriously and worked to have a good relationship with her customers. Then she was rewarded with this interview for the teacher job.

    MM, my mother always said, "Bloom where you're planted", and I think you've done just that. Now you're flowers are starting to grow. Good for you. :D

    By the way, mm, I dreamed last night that I was waitressing, back in the restaurant I worked in in high school and college. ( had the time of my life working there.)

    I dreamed that I only had 1 table-- 2 little old ladies who skipped out on the check.

    Fingers toes and tongue will all be crossed for you tomorrow, but it sounds like you'll have a higher power on your side from the get-go.

    It went well. They're interested in contract work to design a program in increase the rigor of their math and science programs. Thats exactly what I did for the college, so its right up my alley. They'll let me know in a few weeks if they can come up with money in the budget to do it.
