Umm...THAT just happened...AGAIN!

So, remember how yesterday I wrote a post about my exciting new job?  That was cool.

Today, I was in Banana Republic trying on some sexy, yet outrageously conservative outfits (because by the way, their clearance items are an ADDITIONAL 40% off right now) and the phone rang.

It was an 806 number.  806 is the Lubbock area code.  And, I thought "oh my goodness...you've GOT to be kidding.  I got a teaching position didn't I?"

Sure enough.  It was an Assistant Principal and they were wondering if I'd be interested being an "interventionist."  My job is basically to help students that aren't understanding certain concepts and teach them in 30 minute increments.  It pays LESS than the law firm does, but substantially more than a substitute job would.  I told him I would have to think about it because money side of me was concerned. 

But then I remembered...I WANT TO TEACH!  This is AMAZING!  I called him back around 5 and told him the flat out truth.

"Umm...sir, I know typically you guys go through an interview process with multiple candidates, but here's the deal: I start another job TOMORROW."

The assistant principal told me to give him 5 to 10 minutes and he'd call me back.

Fast forward three and a half hours.  I was defeated and sad.  I told Evan I would NEVER get a teaching job and that they weren't even going to interveiw me because I had been too much of a pain on the phone (yeah, I can occasionally be overly dramatic).

At 8:30 (p.m. yeah.  Respect your principals...they work LATE!), the principal of the school called me and we had a 20 minute talking session.  I call it a talking session, but truthfully, it was an interview.  I just didn't know it at the time!

Long story short...I GOT THE JOB!  And when a full time teaching position becomes available, guess who has a great shot at it?  THAT'S RIGHT PEOPLE...

Call me Mrs. Teacher! : )

My birthday is tomorrow by the way.  And, I feel pretty damn happy.

Now if you'd excuse me, I have to go do a VERY mature something and drink some wine with my husband to celebrate.

  10. Cool! I just found your blog and it looks like we have a lot in common, even down to our blog title. Something about that med school thing, it rules your life does it not? I'm a teacher too. Congrats on your new job! How exciting that your hubby is on his residency interview! We still have a year to go. We started over in life and hubby went back to med school. Anyway, I'm a new follower. Come visit my blog!
