I interviewed for a position yesterday at Payton's school, Reach Academy. I was already assured by several people I had the job, and this was just a formality. At the end of the interview I was officially offered the position.
I will be the Title 1 paraprofessional/library aide/media tech. I'll be reporting to the lead media specialist while working on reading programs for all grades and abilities. My job is to promote reading in a fun and creative way and to guide group book discussions and read to classrooms. I'll be responsible for ensuring that we have the appropriate materials for all reading levels, ordering new books and materials and ensuring student comprehension of what they're reading.
I'll be officially starting on August 17th, working 8am-3:30pm. Maxwell will be with a parent from the school who lives close and needs the income. Max likes her and will learn to love her I'm sure. She is amazing with kids and I really trust her.
I'm excited about the position, the work it will include and the hours. It will be nice to be on a schedule with my kids; weekends off, summers off, holidays off. I'm nervous because it's something I've never done before, but I'm excited about the possiblities that lay ahead.
Thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers leading up to this. But don't forget me! I'll need your prayers that I do an amazing job and figure this out fast and well!
