Not me! lol
I have had a crazy day to say the least. What with my interview today, parent meeting after school, and parent math night tonight is has been a roller-coaster.
My interview went really well. I really enjoyed the experience of having to think on the spot. I feel that I have really come a long ways in being able to communicate in a coherent and effective way in interviews.
After my interview I had to spend a great deal of time working with my class and wondering what the outcome would be. It wasn't until afternoon recess that I actually found out. The elementary supervisor came to my room and asked me to visit in the office with him. I could tell from the way he wouldn't look at me that I was not the selected candidate. He said many nice things to me, that I guess made sense, but in all reality, I wished he would have just stopped talking so I could get back to my classroom and be with my students. I mean I GET IT!!! I DIDN'T GET THE JOB!!! Talking more doesn't make it hurt less. lol
After getting over the initial feeling of complete rejection, I was able to move on with life. I don't hold any hard feelings about the decision. Ms. Durrant is going to do an excellent job. I don't feel angry, I don't feel depressed. I feel at peace. I think this was meant to be. In fact, I think that I learned from all of this that I was simply meant to be an educator NOT administrator. I am okay with that. The money would have been nice, but the stress and drama wouldn't have been helpful. So I can honestly say, Thank You Emery County for helping me realize that I don't want to be a principal. I am excited to finish my degree and then resume a life that doesn't consist of college classes, workshops, and/or meetings every 5 minutes.
Well, I guess since it took two days to write this post, I best get it posted and move on to something else. Ms. D just left after coming for the afternoon to study for our praxis test. The kids love to have her visit and my wife and I are glad to have a true friend here in town.
This test will be over someday and then I can take a deep breath and move on!
