Last Friday, I got a phone call from the Rochester City School District. They were calling to offer me an open contract for next school year! I stopped in Monday afternoon to sign the contract, which means I have agreed to teach in the district beginning in September. I have to wait for the district to figure out which schools have openings, and then I need to interview with individual principals.
Even though I don’t know what school or what grade I will be teaching in, it is so relieving and exciting to know that I will have my own classroom! I really do think that my time at the Warner School, especially my participation in the Urban Teaching and Leadership Program, helped me get my foot in the door. It feels really good to know that all of my hard work has paid off.
