Well, I had applied for a language acquisition position that I find out I am not qualified because you have to have taught for a minimum of 5 years. But, the lady I spoke to said there might be a position opening up very soon. I set-up a screening interview and went to that yesterday. Just as I was finishing up the interview, a principal had been calling for a first grade position. They asked if I wanted to interview for it, I said that I would want to. Since I am over there anyways, it would not hurt to go through with it. I ended up really enjoying the principal and the school (probably one of the better schools in the district). I left thinking...wow, could this really be the job I get? I got a phone call later that afternoon saying they got the go-ahead from the principal to call my references and possibly by Tuesday I have a job....OH MY GOODNESS!!! Then, my mentor teacher from student teaching called me saying the district already called her about me...and that was within 2 hours of me talking to the district about calling my references...I was overwhelmed!!
I keep running around in my head about this job...is this job I should take? The down side is that it is on the west side of Phoenix and a good 45 minute drive.
Here are the pluses to taking the job:
- earning money
- doing what I like best
- could move out of parents house
- move closer to Dustin
- become who I want to be
I get to drive over to ASU West today to receive my official certification from the Arizona Board of Education and it will be quite a momentous time since I am on the brink of getting my first official job...
