He didn’t have good news for me, though; they decided to go with the other candidate. He was very kind about it in what I felt was a genuine way – I didn’t get the whole “it was a very deep pool” bullshit that I got from the principal of my internship school – LHS’s principal explained that they were genuinely torn by their decision and that he would keep all of my contact information in case something unexpected opens up.
I’m disappointed, but less so because I more than half expected this to happen. CT assures me that something will come – “good teachers get jobs,” she says. I’m not so sure – our market for English teachers is pretty saturated at the moment – but I’m going to keep letting the Universe know that I’m still here and still want to work.
Thank you all so much for waiting this out with me! It was easier knowing I have you all behind me!
