Today the principal emailed me and asked if I'd meet him in his office during 7th period today. Butterflies in my stomach as I waited to be called in. Would it be good news? Bad news?
It was GREAT news!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got hired for next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So much stress has been lifted off of my shoulders!!! Am I still on a shoestring budget until my teacher's salary kicks in, in August? Yes. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, which is better than staring into the great unknown! And I will be able to fully relax this summer knowing that I have a job awaiting! :) :)
Only one catch. He told me that the only position officially open right now (our teachers haven't turned in their job contracts for next year yet) is a 7th grade Language Arts (Reading/Writing) job. The teacher is retiring. So he asked me if I would be interested in filling that position. Well I'm no dummie! A job is a job, I'll take it. He told me that he'd rather me be a math teacher, but as of right now this is the only job available. But he plans to do some "re-shuffling" (as he called it) once he finds out about more positions opening up and he hopes to put me in a math position. Whatever, I'll teach anything as long as I am in the door and the paychecks start rolling in! :)
Anyway, so that is my HUGE news of the day! I haven't even told Mason yet, because he won't answer his phone at work!!! Ahhh! I'm so glad that my master plan of becoming a teacher actually worked. I wasn't sure it would, what with all the competition these days to land a job! But I am So So happy it did! Wish it wasn't a school night so I could celebrate with some champagne! :) Yippee!!
*This is all pending the green light from HR, of course, but things should be just fine there, so I'll let you know when I am officially hired! Then the celebrating can really begin! :)
