Another interview!

I had another interview! I interviewed for a high school postition for an Autism program at Tempe High School. I think the interview went really well. It seems like a good program that has a cap of 15 kids with three teachers and 6 paras. Those are great numbers! I would love to co-teach with other teachers. :) I'll post as soon as I get a call, either way for either job. :)

No News Yet

No news yet from the guy from district who is checking on my references. I'm not surprised though. It is summer and hard to get ahold of principals. I will post on here when I hear more about my job. Then I will be able to start posting about my school adventures! :)

My job interview today!

I had my first job interview of the summer today, and hopefully my last. This job would be awesome!!!!!!!!!! It is through the school district, but located at a Christian private school. :) How perfect is that! I'm so excited. So here are some details for those of you who want them. :) I wore my dress that I wore to my mom and dad's vow renewal a few years ago. I haven't had too many chances to wear it since then, so it is still like new. I also wore a pink shrug with it, since the dress is sleevless. I go there and waited for a little bit in the lobby. Then the very nice head of special services came to get me. He seems like a nice laid back guy. I hope he is like that all of the time, because he will be my main boss, since I'm hopefully going to be at a private school. He asked me a bunch of questions, which I think I answered intelligently. Then he told me about the position, the school and the staff at the school. He explained the paperwork. One great thing he said was that the kids are very well behaved at this school. That is just fine with me! I don't like being direspected. He explained the salary and how it works since I'll be working 80% of full time. I still get benefits, which I knew since I read the teacher handbook last night. :) That impressed him. He said all that was left was to call my references. Sounds like I got the job! :) I'm so excited. I think my first day of work will be July 23rd. And I don't think I'll be working much for Bricks 4 Kidz after that, since there is low enrollment for the site I was assigned to for July. I'm so excited, did I mention that? :)

I have been so busy this summer working with Bricks 4 Kidz doing summer camps. I love working with kids and Legos. So far we've done an Olympic theme and a space theme. It has been fun, but tiring. I wonder how I'm going to do this for 8+ hours a day when school starts. Speaking of when school starts, please pray that I get a teaching job. I need to work more hours than I'm working now. I only work 10 hours during the week when schools in and 20 hours a week during the summer, and that isn't every week. So I need a teaching job. Plus I miss the classroom so much. I've been on Pinterest going over the educations pins. So many fun things to see and do. I'll keep you updated on the job front. Hopefully I'll have some news soon.

Bricks 4 Kidz

Big changes this year. Moving, new schools for the girls, new jobs for Joe and me. Well, Joe is with the same company but he has a new job. He is now working in Metrology. What ever that is, measurements of how the machine puts the memory on the wafer? I think. My new job is with Bricks 4 Kidz. They are a company that teach math and science through the use of legos. I've done transportation, space, natural disasters, and invention units. The kits we are are very cool and inclue gears, pullies, motors and battery packs. All very neat. We make moving models. We even made a dragster that the kids got to race. The girls are adjusting well to school. Jamie is doing well in middle school. She has adapted. She doesn't like middle school, but then again, who did? Not very many people. Faith is loving her school. She told me that I would love to work there because the teachers have so much fun. :) That is a sign of a good school. Both girls have made many friends. Faith goes out to play, even in 108 degree weather. I wish it was that easy to make friends as an adult! We are enjoying out house. The location is great. We live close to everything and are in a good school district. But most of all we enjoyed the pool this summer. It is rapidly cooling down though, and we aren't in it as much as we used to be.

Will this work?

I have been trying to publish a post for some time and it hasn't worked. This will be my last try. I'm thinking of moving to Wordpress, where my sister now blogs. We are now in Phoenix, and getting settled. I have a very part time job. It is only about 15 hours a week. So I'm still looking for a full time job. Joe is doing well at work. Faith loves school and has made a lot of new friends. Jamie doesn't like school very much, but who loves middle school, right? She is making friends, so that is good news. we live in a great neighborhood with nice neighbors and lots of stores around. I hope all is well with you. If I get a new job, I'll post all about it. :)

We're moving, Finally!

We have had the house packed, and cleaned our town house. Now we're ready to hit the road early in the morning! :) We'll be in Phoenix on Tuesday. And our stuff will come to our house on Wednesday. In the meantime we are staying in hotels, one room hotels. Jamie isn't too happy about this. She is really wanting some alone time. :) She has her own room in our new house, so she'll be getting some of that.

See you in Phoenix!
