BIG News Revealed

Sorry to keep you waiting, but it's been a pretty crazy weekend. Ok...to start off with, I'm going to tell you what I couldn't tell you in my last post. 

A little less than two weeks ago I had an interview for a 5th grade teaching position with a principal in the district that I'm an aide in. The job hadn't even posted yet, but my name was given to this principal by the Superintendent of Personnel whom I had emailed about how to get an interview in the district about a month (give or take) before. The interview went really well. I was the only one that she interviewed. The two other principals that I had worked for must've really sold her on me. Leaving there, it seemed like she really wanted me. I was 99% sure that I had the job. That was on Wednesday. On Friday, she called me to tell me that she called my references and that she was going to be submitting my name to Human Resources on Monday (last Monday). On Friday I had an interview with the man in HR. It went well and when we were done talking, he told me that he was going to approve me for hire. I filled out little paperwork (because I already work in the district) and I got to skip the TB test, physical, and the background check because those had already been done as well.

Today I moved into my classroom with the help of my hubby and my sister-in-law. I was there from 9:40am-4:25pm. They were there for most of the time that I was. We got a lot done, but there is still so much to organize and I have to decorate the bulletin boards and walls. This is my room so far:








I have trainings pretty much all week (minus Thursday). I will be using Thursday to organize and put up my bulletin board decorations. I have another training next Monday and then I have Tuesday and Wednesday to play in my room. Thursday and Friday will be institute days. School starts on Monday, August 18th. I'm still in shock that I got a teaching job and I'm going to rock it! ;)

In infertility news, I have been so good and not done a HPT! Wednesday is the pregnancy test at the clinic! I can't believe it is almost here. Planning for my classroom has sure made time fly!!!
