I had my all day interview last Monday. It was exhausting!!! Holy moly that was a lot of talking. It was super cool to see a full day at the school and meet so many of the staff. I really, REALLY loved it there. But, the last job I interviewed for that I really wanted I didn’t get, so I am scared. I have a second interview with another school on Wednesday, and then a first interview at a different place on Friday. I am kind of suffering from interview fatigue. I just want to find a job I will love.

All 3 of us (the two other girls on my team) told our students we wouldn’t be back next year. There were LOTS of tears. I love these kids and they are the reason I stuck around. It was so hard to tell them I wouldn’t be back. I just wanted to shout “Its not you guys, its the administration!!!” but instead I had to say things like “I have such a long drive” or “I just really want to get back to middle school”. The reality is I am looking at any job and one of the ones I have a second interview is pretty much exactly what I do now (special ed at a private HS) and only 10 minutes closer. 3 more months until graduation.

On top of all that stress, we have been struggling with money. We had unexpected bills that really pulled us under. I’m trying to get things back on track, but its so hard once you have to climb out of a hole. Adulting is so hard.

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Wow! I cannot believe three of you are leaving. This should be a wake up call to your administration, though we know it probably won’t be. It’s great that you are getting a lot of interviews. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

  2. I will really think of you Samantha! And I can totally understand why you are interview sick. I hope you’ll work something out for these piling bills. Have faith. Sending you lots of lucky vibes.

  3. I hope you land a job that you love, Samantha! Yes, adulting is hard, especially when you have to figure out unexpected costs.

    Glad to see you enjoyed Unforgiven also! Happy reading! 🙂

  4. I used to love interviewing but it is rough because it’s like being “on” all the time. I asked a ton of questions and enjoyed learning about the companies / jobs.I think it’s very hard to decide because even if you love a place in the interview it doesn’t mean the job will be the same. Good luck on finding the best one for you! I hope you find a great job, solve your money issues and read some great books! Isn’t spring break coming soon? We are just staying home. It will be great.

    I really hope you get this job. The last couple I’ve applied for didn’t work out either. I get my new phone Wednesday so I’m plan on putting more in then. The money struggle is real!!!

  6. Interviews are tough, especially intensive ones like that. All day! Ugh. I hope you get the one you really want though. the waiting is the hardest I think!

    It must be tough to leave the kids you love so much, but an administration can make it so hard I’m sure. Kudos to you for doing what you need to do, but I’m sure it’s hard.

    Adulting sucks sometimes lol.

  7. It sucks that the higher ups in callings like yours that hinder you from being the best teacher you can be. The best teachers I ever had were the ones that weren’t the most like by the administration or other teachers that toed the line. I’m pray that you continued to be strengthened as you continue searching or the position you’re looking for.
