This is a big day. Huge. I know I should be able to express myself more articulately considering how long I have been waiting for this day to come, but words are failing me.Well, that comes closer. See, after four years, several interviews, and several also-rans-we're-so-sorry-you're-very-qualified-and-we-really-like-yous....I HAVE BEEN OFFERED A JOB!
For now, it is a substitute job. The union requires that it be posted and other prospects be interviewed. But in the meantime, I will be the sub second grade teacher, working with the current teacher until an overflow classroom is ready. We will be a team, planning and sharing the load, figuring out what educational practices are best for 33 little ones, until the afternoon I take my group off to "our" room to do some learning magic of our own. The principal says more than likely it will remain my job after the interviews are done, and I am trying to keep that in mind. but for right now I am so excited I can only think one thing.
Yeah, that'll do for now...
