Wonder of Wonders, Miracles of Miracles...I GOT A JOB!!!!
Here is the story! I had applied to about 75 jobs in the Alpine and Provo Districts and only got one interview...with no job offer.
Nebo School District (Springville/Spanish Fork) then posted 40 jobs and I applied to ALL of them! I had 7 interviews and I felt super lucky! About a week later...I had been rejected by 3 schools and I was waiting to hear back from 4 more which were basically all older grades. I had accepted it that I would teach the older grades and all would be well...if I got a job. I had my email up all day, everyday waiting to hear any news. I almost emailed a principal just wanting to know when we would find out!
While in Tennis class, I saw that I missed a call from a random 801 number. I was so nervous! I
thought...maybe it is a job or maybe its a rejection (because some schools have been
calling to reject). I prepped myself and then listened to the voicemail and it was the
Principal from Westside Elementary (where I did my first student teaching in 6th grade). She asked me
to call her back.
I was bummed because I was for sure that it was a rejection. They had 2 positions open.
One in 1st grade and one in 3rd grade but they had 3 interns at their school...two in 3rd
and one in 2nd. I was for sure that they would keep on their interns and not hire me.
I called her back and she said, "Aubrie, we would like to offer you the 1ST GRADE
TEACHING POSITION AT WESTSIDE ELEMENTARY!" I responded, "YES! And I think I might
start to cry!" Haha. It was the last job ever that I applied for that I thought I would get
but I couldn't be happier! I am going to teach 1st grade! Yes!
The school is exactly a 6 minute drive from our house, right across Main Street and is filled
with a wonderful staff! I couldn't be more excited! This really was probably my first choice!
I have already started thinking of classroom themes and all the fun things I will be able to do with these 6 year olds! Woo Hoo!
Yay for employment, a paycheck and getting Aaron through school! :)
