Stressful...

that is all I can say about the last week of school!  As you know my stress began last Friday when I was told that I no longer had a job at my school.  Of course I was not too shocked since I was the next one...

However, I really didn't want to spend time searching out a new school; while finishing up the last  3 weeks, oh and plan the final touches on my wedding.  Monday was the beginning of a busy week.  First off at school our poor kiddos had 3 days of Stanford 10 testing (a state test for the lower grades).  Testing means that our schedule changes, which mean that one of my friends has a rough week!  After testing all day on Monday, I set out on my new goal! FINDING A NEW JOB!!!!!

I took off to a school that I knew had about 2 openings.  I thought  I would just wait to chat with the principal or even vice principal.  After waiting for about and hour or so I finally met the vice principal.  He was very kind.  He gave me about 10 minutes and then told me he would pass the information along.  I was pretty happy with that.  I mean for the past 2 weeks I have been emailing schools with opening.  However no one has responded positively.  Thus ending my day on a semi positive note!

Tuesday brought another day of testing and searching for a job.  I hit up another school that I knew had one possibly two openings. However, the principal there really could have cared less to meet with me.  He did take my resume and told me he would let me know (yeah right).    No worries, I gave it a try.  I mean the worse any of these principals can do is tell me NO!  Moving on with life on Wednesday it was our last day of testing (THANK GOODNESS).  My kids did pretty well and were happy as can be to be done testing.  That afternoon at planning, I checked my email to find.....an email from the principal of the school I visited on Monday!  She said that she had looked over my resume and spoke to a few people.  Next she asked me to come by after school for an interview!  I was so excited!!!  I mean after sending out my resume to at least 20 schools and hearing nothing back!  She wanted to meet with me...YES YES YES YES YES (picture much jumping and screaming).  Oh wait...she wants to meet today!  Now the nervousness is setting in!!!

Come 4:00 pm I was over at the school ready for my interview.  I was very nervous to say the least. I mean I have not had an interview in like 5 years (when I got this teaching job).  Not only was I nervous but when I entered in to the room there were many people.  They had 2 teachers from each of the following grade levels: Kinder, First, and Second.  Then also it was the Literacy coach, the school counselor, and the vice principal. Now I was really nervous!!!  Then interview went pretty well, or so I felt.  All in all it was pretty good.  Now to just wait!!!
