We'll see.

Because I'm not so sure I'm going to get the job at the new school that I reeeeaaaalllly want. The interview went pretty well. They were poker-faced for the most part, so it was hard to tell.

I should know for sure before May 1. I hope to find out before that, like in the next week or so. I know they're on a fast timeframe, and if I have to wait the full two weeks to find out, I might lose it. I know that I have so much to offer, but I also might not be the most "attractive candidate." For example, I don't have my masters, I've taught for under 10 years, I've only taught in two different districts, stuff like that. I hope they can see through all that to my strengths.

I also found out in the interview that over 100 teachers applied for a transfer within the district alone, not to mention anyone coming in from out of the district or out of the state. I looked up the available positions, and it looks like they need to hire between 20 and 25 people, with about three different positions that I could be offered. You do the math.

I feel a little discouraged, but I still think I have a chance. If I don't get in this year, I do plan to try next year. But for moment, I'm still trying to think positive. Because you never know.

sorry for feelings of discouragement. if this were a gamblin' game, i'd play the "God Card" and make sure you won the jackpot! but since providence is a whole lot more complex and mysterious than TexasSchoolDistrictHold'Em, and His pay-offs are a whole lot better in the long run, i'm praying that God gives you a series of little wins this week, along with Him opening many little windows that show that He sees you out of the corner of His eye, as well as right in the center.

hey! run tell nathan quick - i just figured out that God is a Mac user - cause we are the Apple of His eye! ummm ... does that qualify as an iBook?

not enuff coffee in my system yet. better go to work ....

blessings, sis. rock on anyway and always!
