I've been applying for and having interviews for teaching jobs now that I finally have finished my teacher education program. There were times when I didn't think I would get a job, but other times when I thought I would. I guess that's probably normal. The main clue that something was going right is that I got a lot of interviews. I was having interviews almost once a week, and one week (last week), I even had two interviews.

I finally have a job! A teaching job, I mean (I had a job before this, just not in teaching).

I'm so excited. This is a full time high school English position at a Classical Education charter school. I am simply amazed that they picked me, because they're really a great school. I would have thought they would want someone with more experience.

I start next Monday for new teacher training for one week, then there's a week of teacher training for ALL teachers (not just new teachers) after that, and the first day of school is July 23. I'm a little overwhelmed, but really excited.

There's so much support and it's such a positive place. I'm really looking forward to it.

And . . . no more applications!

Congrats . That's great news, and charter schools often have more opportunity for individual teaching styles. You did great.

I'm finally sort of getting used to it. I picked up my contract today, and they gave me a million books! Okay, not a million, but there are a lot of them.

I have to read Othello by next week Monday (July 16, not July 9). Then, for July 23, I need to read The Crucible, The Odyssey, and Frankenstein.

The teachers all have book discussions once a quarter, which is pretty exciting.

I'm really looking forward to it.

Thanks again to everyone!

Thanks, Bonnie! I think I will, too, but it's going to be a lot of work.
