I did it!

After months of applying for teaching positions (since April to be exact), I finally got the job. I will be working withing the Wisconsin Dells School District for the 2011-2012 school year at two elementary schools teaching K-5 Art. I received the phone call on Monday the 15th to come in for an interview the following morning. I went in at 8:30 for the interview feeling pretty confident (I had gone for an interview previously and walked out feeling very beaten down and not so proud of my performance) and ready to be myself and comfortable and to wow them. I walked out of the interview at 9:15 feeling awesome about the way it had gone. I told myself that even if I didn't get it, I was happy with it. I got 'the' phone call at 11:45 that I had been chosen for the position.

In the meantime, I had stopped to get gas on the way home, I was on E, pulled up to the pump annnnd did not have my wallet. Thanks to the help of some super awesome friends (who are also a super awesome couple-a true team in life) I was saved from the middle of nowhere gas station. It's never a dull moment in this life of mine.

If it wasn't for the amazing people who have supported me through everything, I would not be where I am today or have the confidence to go after my dreams. This job, the job of educating, is what makes my soul happy. I get to explore my rooms on Tuesday and have 7 days of in-service before I meet my kiddos. There will be lots to update in the next coming week!

This is the note my adorable fiance left for me on my computer the morning of my interview. I brought it with me, I think it helped me land the job.
