My future, it keeps changing...

Today I was offered the job I interviewed for last week. The interview panel felt that I would be a good fit for the job, although the principal, when he called, warned me that I would likely feel like I was in over my head until I am able to get my bearings and learn more about working with younger children.

I was offered the job based on my beliefs, and my personality... not on my specific qualifications, it seems! Don't get me wrong, I'm still qualified, I've just never worked with a group of younger kids liked this before on a long-term basis. My teaching experience only really comes from the class Ryan and I taught in college... to college aged students.

This feels bittersweet... this isn't where I was supposed to be right now. It feels like even more of an end to what has happened to us.

But, the past is the past and the future is, well, the future. So tomorrow I'll put on my happy face and head in to meet with the principal. I guess he's planning on giving me a bit of a tour and stuff. My future has changed, once again.

As usual... I'll post about it, probably tomorrow, to tell my loyal readers about what I have found out.

Oh, I was a first grade teacher and I loved it! I hope tomorrow goes well. Remember they are probably just as scared as you are (meeting a new person). I can't remember what age exactly you will be working with but I bet you will do great!
