So, CT had her conversation with the principal of LHS this morning, and she told me that the decision is down to a choice between me and someone who’s already working as a sub in the school.
I gather from what CT was told that the English department head has taken an unpaid leave every spring semester for the last five years to do some work in the Dominican Republic, and the other candidate for the job is the person who fills in for him.
All of a sudden, I’m not so optimistic about my chances.
The thing is? I’m not sure I WANT to take the job over this person. I know how crappy it feels to be passed over for someone “from the outside” – that’s what happened to me at my internship school. I don’t want to be the one who “does” that to this woman. This should not be a question – unless she’s done something inappropriate or is somehow underqualified, she should get the position. I’m not just falling on my sword here, either; I really and truly believe that.
