After having only 2 interviews in three years, I now have two in the same week. I interviewed for a 1st grade position yesterday and I am interviewing for a 5th grade position Thursday. The 1st grade position is 35 minutes away, the 5th grade position is 12 minutes away. I'm supposed to hear about the 1st grade position tomorrow. Although 12 minutes is much more desirable than 35 minutes, I also feel that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Especially with the scarcity of teaching jobs in the last few years. I'm not sure if the district 35 minutes away would let me think about it until I find out about the 12 minute job. Oh well, no use putting the cart before the horse. I guess sending out over 300 cover letters and resumes is paying off. Or the praying, or both.
