Didn't Get It.

I didn't get the job. I wasn't expecting to really but it was nice that I even got offered an interview. I've been supplying for 2 years now and it was my first interview for an LTO. The principal let me down really nicely. He said it wasn't something I said or I didn't say but they went with someone with more experience. Apparently a person who has worked at this school before and has had 3 LTOs in this grade level. So that's to be expected and he gave me some pointers for my next interview.

He said I interviewed well and was articulate and that he will put my name out there for other jobs. He also said that I could see him to practice for my next interview if I ever wanted to. He was really nice.

I thanked him for the consideration.

On the bright side, I did get a teaching call today and worked a full day teaching grade 6. The kids were pretty good as well. I also put $500 in a TFSA and $500 into an RSP (I need to update me RSP bar). So getting closer to those financial goals. I don't think I will complete a lot of my non-financial goals this year! Less than three months until 2011!!!

Last night we celebrated my brother's birthday who turns 24 today. We went out for supper which was nice. D came over and we chatted and played with that Tipp-Ex youtube video for a while haha. My mom asked what all the laughter was about and so I showed it to her after. She wasn't as interested lol. D and I are going to go for a walk tonight with the dog, will be nice to see the fall colours on a warm fall evening.

I applied for another half-time teaching position last night but I was at the school the position is for today and a teacher kind of mentioned to me that she pretty much has that job. I didn't even mention the job or the fact that I applied for it at all, so that kind of sucks. I'm hoping more positions will become available soon. This teacher glut is quite depressing!


  1. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get it, but I'm glad you have such an optimistic attitude!

  2. I'm sorry to hear about the job.

  3. Booo!

    Ya, alot of the jobs that are out right now are taken, fun re-organization time!

    I know that there was a contract position at my school, but its gone already :(

  4. One of my best friends from college, ALL her close friends from high school went to be teachers. lol. And now apparently in that area( Ottawa) its hard to find a job cause everyone decided to be a teacher all of a sudden. :(
    I hope you find something!!

  5. I know you probably don,t want to hear this, but getting the interviews down pat is not as simple as you think.
    So the fact that you were told you interviewed well and were given some pointers will stand you in good stead.
    The right position is waiting for you out there.

  6. Sorry you didn't get the job, but hopefully it was a learning and growing experience? Good luck in your search.
