Two days ago, my principal, a teachers assistant and the pre-k teacher leaving interviewed me for the pre-k job opening up at Jane Addams next year. After the interview, the principal told me she would let me know by the end of the week. The gossip around the school is that they didn't like the only other girl they interviewed. Teachers everywhere were whispering to me in the halls, "I told Mrs. Armstrong (the principal) that I really like you." It felt like I was being campaigned for! It was nice to have the approval of my peers.

I was waiting in major anticipation! This morning Mrs. Armstrong asked to talk to me on my plan period. I was sad, because my plan is at the end of the day. More waiting! About twenty minutes ago, I stepped into the hall to hang student work just as she passed by. She turned around, came to me and said, "Get ready for pre-k, you are the new teacher."

I HAVE A JOB! At a school that I know, with teachers and administration I know! Praise God! I am soooo excited! Not to mention, relieved.

Congrats! That is great news! If you need to practice with Henry, we rent him out by the hour. Haha, just kidding. He will also be a Pre-K'er next year, but I will be keeping him at his same preschool so he can continue with the bilingual teaching.
