I got hired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!

I took me 3 months and a total of 8 interviews. The end result was AMAZING!!! During my interview today, the P called the P I interviewed with on Monday, in the same charter school system. The two P's had a conversation over the phone, in front of me, fighting over who would get me. I was both of their first choices. The P I interviewed with on Monday told the P I interviewed with today that I would take the 1st grade position with her. Then the P I interviewed with today told the P I interviewed with on Monday that she wanted me for 2nd.

I had a choice betwen 1st grade and 2nd grade. The 1st grade position is 20 mins from where we live and the 2nd grade position is and 45 mins away from where we live. I chose the 2nd grade position because it is closer to my husband's work and family. Now we will be able to start looking for places to live closer to his family which is where we both want to be. Also, the reactions of each P to my clip chart for behavior managment helped me choose. I went with the 2nd P because she loved my idea and I don't have to alter it at all.

I can't believe 2 P's fought over me on the phone!!!!!!!!!!!!! I overheard the whole conversation.

I wish everyone who is stil continuing on the journey of finding a teaching job lots and lots of luck. I have confidence that you too will get hired!!!!!

Yeah!!!! What great news!! I have still been checking this board to see how things are going and I am so thrilled for you. Of course two P's fought over you because you are highly qualified and are an awesome teacher! I taught second grade last year for the first time and really enjoyed it - it is a great grade! Enjoy the rest of the summer.
