Interview went really well, principal walked me out and said I did great and she was really intrigued by my having had my own business and all the life experience that I brought to the table. She called me shortly after I got home and said that as soon as she heard from the references she would be formally offering me the job. Two of my three references have already called me to tell me that they got called.

It's another one year leave, but I don't care! And the part time thing is really sweet... I don't have to be there until 10 in the morning and leave at 2:30, plus don't have to come in at all during the first semester on Tuesdays. I won't have my own room (they are really over crowded) and will probably have to "travel" to different rooms.

Hooray!

And I just got the official job offer! and I start FRIDAY! New teacher orientation and then full days M-T-W-Th for training, team building retreat, etc.

Glad I'm done looking for another year.

I did decide that since I'll have Tuesdays free until February that I would do some extracurricular subbing a couple times a month.

I sent an email to the principal that I interviewed with earlier who recommended me to the principal for an interview after he interviewed me (hope that makes sense)... told him thanks so much and that I got the job.

he writes back "Awesome!!!!!!! You'll be great then we'll steal you back when something opens. Have fun."

Thanks again everyone!

Bet you feel great!
It is always nice when someone gives you a woo hoo - and you get a job. Who knows maybe that person will not come back and you will stay.

Have a great first week!
