Yesterday, after a relentless husband pestered me into calling the Principal for that job, I did call and leave a message saying I had turned in my application and was waiting on my recommendation letters. Then, last night the phone rang just before 6pm. My husband yells from the other room, "That's your new boss!" which I pishawed, saying it was too late and it was probably my dad.
But it was the principal! He wanted to explain that the job was just for the remainder of this year, and they weren't sure if it would be available for next year, but if it was, of course the person already there stood a good chance. Then he asked if it changed my mind about applying.
I said I do want a full time position for next year, but this job was right up my alley. He said to take the weekend to think about it and call him if I wanted an interview!
Yay! Somebody wants me!
So I don't need the weekend, I do think I want the job. The upside is a steady paycheck, regular schedule, and a local (hopefully kick-butt) recommendation for a job next year, or the potential to stay there.
The down side is that I won't get to experience other schools in the area, get my foot in the door. And it's full time, so I have to figure out the day care and pumping and so on, but that isn't impossible.
But I think I will be calling in 12 minutes here to tell him to consider me.
