Job Interview

Yesterday I interviewed for a Campus Reading Specialist Position. The interview went really well and it was all friendly faces in the interview process. The director told me I would have a position next year, and she is aware that I would like to stay at my current school, and the school would like me to stay. I also told her I understood that when I applied ultimately I had to be flexible, but it would be my number one choice, she said she would let me know my location by April. The rest I'm completely leaving in God's hands, He's done some pretty great stuff for me career wise up through this point! After Spring Break I am supposed to start working with the current CRS so the 'take over' will be seamless when she leaves the district. Today, while my kids took a math test, I began going through my files. I have about a million, and I didn't put much of a dent in that, but it was a start, and it's something I need to be doing from this point on so the end of the year is not such a shock. Some things I will take with me, but quite a bit of it is totally unnecessary at this point! I'll keep you posted, it was a bittersweet time, it's so difficult to leave the kids (though I'll still have small groups-I'll also be working with teachers and helping direct their teaching), 95% of the time I love the students, and we have a good time, 5% of the time I'd work at McDonald's on the graveyard shift. I need to seize the opportunity before it passes. There are plenty of classes I can go back into, but the 'big doors' only open so often....
