Today is the day

Since graduating college in December 2008, I have been looking for a full-time, contracted teaching position. However, the job market in the field of education is not doing so well due to the economic struggle we are all feeling. Since I was a young girl I have always dreamed of becoming a teacher and a mommy. Well, I have my teaching license, I'm just waiting for the teaching and mommy part.

Today I have an interview for a 4th grade teaching position!! WOOT WOOT! Yes, it is full-time and contracted! I am so very thankful for this opportunity to interview for this position! You have no idea how hard it is to even get an interview with over 300 applicants for one position. This job market is tough. It's like a fight scene from the movie Fight Club. Imagine teacher applicants in the waiting room, dressed in their best beating the crap out of each other to get the job. Now, that's not really what happens. We fight with words. Fight with our portfolios, lesson plans, and great smile! We know how to work it!

Today I am going to work it! I am going to show my mad interview skills so he will have no choice but to hire me! lol After my interview i will be waiting for a phone call to see if I got the job. Why does it seem like we are always waiting for the greatest things in our lives?


  1. I am so happy for you! I wanted to be a teacher as well. Due to having a head injury at birth I have a mild learning disablity and was told I didn't have the faculties to go out and make something of myself. I gave up. I wish I didn't.

  2. Don't ever let people tell you you cannot do something. You can do anything! I've seen people overcome many obstacles while others were trying to bring them down. You just have to keep your head up high and push forward to the result that you desire.

    Thanks. I've always wanted to be a teacher. I hope I get some good news!
