Last week I applied for a half keyboarding, half math position at the school my principal at the high school was transferred to. I sent the official Request For Transfer form in to the district and then emailed the principal letting her know that I would like to interview for the position. I showed up for the interview, walked in to her office and sat down and she said “Here’s the interview. Do you want the job?” I said “Yes” and she said “Good, it’s yours.” Hardest interview EVER.
This is a good thing for a couple of reasons. I’ve had a few issues with people at the school I’m at now, and one of the things I really liked about the high school was that I was not teaching all math, all day. I really liked mixing it up a bit.
I told my current principal that I got the job, she has known for a while that I was going to look for something to do with teaching computers, and I told her when I applied for the position. Plus, she’s retiring and moving to Hawaii anyway, so she congratulated me and wished me the best.
That’s all the details I can give on my public blog, but there’ll be more on my private blog “L’Adunata”. (I’ve only had it a month or so, so if you are a regular visitor/commenter and want see what I keep out of the public eye because of educational politics, just leave a post with your email and I’ll add you. I will not publish the post with your email in it.)
