So, remember I sent those resumes out a few days back, apropos of nothing and not at all expecting anything to come of it?
Well, I got called back last week, and I had a job interview today at a very prestigious private school in town. The interview went well, I thought, and they seemed impressed with my resume. They're going to call my references, and if all goes well, maybe --- maybe --- I will get called back to do a mock lesson as a second interview.
I'm amazed and highly gratified that a place with such high standards would think so well of me. I absolutely loved the campus, the teachers, the kids, and the school's philosophy. It really would be a great fit for me. I'm trying not to get too excited because it's not likely that I'll be offered a position, and I don't want to "jinx" it somehow by counting chickens, but hey, I am excited.
The job pays a lot more than a starting public school salary, almost twice what I made at The Job. And the benefits are better.
Man, I really hope I get offered a job there. But I'm not going to hold my breath. I just have to put it out of my mind for a couple of weeks.
