Today, when I was on my lunch break (I'm a para), my principal called my classroom to ask to speak to me. When I came back, the paras told me the principal was looking for me, which definitely sparked lots of interest among everyone. I was expecting it would be good news since I knew the principal I interviewed with and my principal have talked about considering me for the position. I went to her office and she very excitedly told me I was officially hired and that I have to write a letter of resignation to resign from my current job as a para and fax it to my new school. She hugged me and off I went to officially resign and then tell everyone (coworkers) that I was not going to be back in September because I got a teaching job. It was a little bittersweet because I will miss everyone ESPECIALLY the kids and especially my one-to-one. I was very close to getting teary when I said bye to my one-to-one when her mom picked her up early to go home. It was also the last day of summer school so I was saying bye to everyone and getting lots of congrats and good wishes.

Well, that's that. I got the job

Also, best of luck to everyone still looking. It CAN be done. You CAN get a job. It definitely helps to be a para first and it helps you get your foot in the door. If you do a good job as a para, you will be recognized by teachers, administrators, AND parents! This opens the door for you and gives you endless connections and networking. Be very persistent. Learn from your interviews and demos and try to better yourself. Be sincere in your answers. Definitely do not give up if you have a passion for teaching.

Congrats! Did the school that hired you tell you that you were hired? I know the principal of your current school told you, but did you hear from the school that is hiring you?

Thanks! The principal of the school that hired me left me a voicemail saying she wants to offer me a position last week but that she needs to get my social security number and make sure everything is OK first. She pretty much hired me then but it wasn't official until today when my principal told me to write the resignation letter. I also spoke to the assistant principal of the school that hired me afterschool today and she said she got the faxed letter and that I got the job. She also told me when new teacher orientation is and wished me a strong start to the new school year.
