I am teaching in a new district next year! I am soooooo excited for it! The last year has been a time of change and finding out what I really want out of life. So I threw my resume out there and within a week I got the job! I truly feel it was/is meant to be. All the stars were aligning and it worked out!!


Now... I will have to move my classroom eventually?!?!?

I will still be in 2nd grade. But I will have to go from departmentalized Math/Science to self-contained. I'm going to have to brush off my reading skills!

We need all the good news we can get! Thank you!

If you know what reading program you will be using you could ask if anyone else here uses the same and if they have any tips. Reading programs have changed.

Congratulations!

I love hearing good news!

A friend wants to transfer to another school. They have not had any interviews due to the shutdown of schools. She spoke to the principal before the shutdown and passed her resume. Just wondering...did you do a virtual interview?

Thank you all!!

I did a virtual interview via Zoom. It worked out great. I secretly had my pj pants on the bottom half of me.

I think my experience in 2nd is what totally got me the job. I just finished my 9th year teaching 2nd out of 12 years.

I was really shocked at how fast it all happened. I submitted my application on a Friday and 7 days later I had a job.

They knew that you are a great teacher and snapped you up before anyone else had a chance.

Congratulation!
