The Waiting Begins…

So this has to be the absolute worst part of anything, waiting…waiting…waiting…

Earlier this week, I randomly got an email from the school I had interviewed with, and done a demo lesson for back in like November. The first position was for a combination fifth grade and seventh grade position. I didn’t really want it, so when they called to tell me that they had chosen someone who had ten years of experience in middle school, I was ok with not getting it. They also told me that before I accept a position anywhere else to call them again because they are definitely interested in having me join the faculty there at some point. They also told me that in the spring they would have a position in second grade which would be opening up, and this position really interested me. Two weeks later, I got a call from them asking if I would be interested in a long term substitute position, though they couldn’t tell me if it would be for the rest of the year, or how long the position would go. I unfortunately had to turn them down considering I couldn’t leave my full time job for a temporary position. I figured at that point that I had burned my bridges.

So like I said, randomly, I got an email asking for me to come in this week and do another demo lesson for them, this time for the second grade position. They even mentioned in the email that understanding, if selected, I would be leaving a full time position, that they would hire me on as a full time teacher. So, I went today, I did my lesson, and I’m pretty confident that I did well, but now I’m playing the waiting game. I know that there are four of us in the running, and that makes me more nervous. I know that I was their second choice for the first position, first for the second, but now, I am thrown back in the pot with a group again. So, hopefully this will lead to a position, but I’m not going to hold my breath…
