The Search Is Over

As you know, I've been on a major job hunt, and it wasn't going so well. I had an interview Friday and I wasn't pleased with it. It just didn't feel right, and needless to say, I didn't get that job. I was disappointed about it, as I desperately want to teach. But I knew God had a plan.

Yesterday, I had an interview with a company that works with children. I liked the company and the position, but they didn't have a position formally open. It would be a month or two before they had anything. I didn't want to wait. I'm super tired of sitting at home.

So, I got home from that, and decided I needed a nap. Shortly after laying down, my phone rang. A principal wanted to interview me for a kinder position. I set up the interview for today, but tried not to get too excited. I'd been disappointed and didn't want to go through that again.

The interview went great! They asked great questions and really got to know me. They're integrating a teaching method that I started using last year and loved. They were all very positive. And they seemed to really like what I had to say and agree with it too. It was a short interview, but I walked out of there feeling great! It really felt like the right place for me.

And it is! They called this afternoon to offer me the position! I am now a kindergarten teacher! I'm so excited. And kind of, really nervous! I've only taught 2nd grade. I can't wait though. I go in tomorrow to look at the room and start trying to get some things ready. So, I'm sure now I will have lots of fun stories to share!

You KNOW I'm excited for you, although, I am sad that I won't get to talk to you during the day anymore. Although my day doesn't really start until about the time you get off, so nevermind! :)
We are so excited for you. God's awesome and we knew He'd take care of you!

I understand the job search pains, I used to teach 2nd grade and we got here right before school started and I haven't found anything! Can't wait to hear how Kindergarten goes!
