Happy day!

I had an interview this afternoon at a public school in town. I was offered a position in a departmentalized fourth grade classroom, but didnt accept immediately because I have two more interviews scheduled in the next week. After some serious thought, some pro and con listing, and talking with some trusted friends and teachers within the district, I decided to sign the letter of commitment and cancel my interviews on Friday and Tuesday.

I have emailed the principal my intent to sign and printed off my letter.

Jobs are scarce this year and it seems like a really good fit.

It's a happy day!

Congratulations! With districts thinking of downsizing due to financial havoc wreaked by the Covid 19 pandemic, this is certainly a great move. My absolute favorite grade to teach was 4th.

Congrats! I taught 4th grade for a couple years. I would have loved to departmentalized. What will you be teaching?
