A Mouse's Tale

Random scurryings of a writer.

A break in the clouds…

So I received a call from a school district looking for an Ed Tech II to help extend their literacy program. Needless to say, I wasn’t that nervous until I really looked up the website some. Needless to say, this is what got me a little nervous:

During the 2005-2006 school year, our school received two distinguishing honors.  The National Middle School Association (NMSA) published a book and DVD that identified eight exemplary middle schools nation-wide, and ——  Middle School was one of those eight schools. On the DVD and in the book, This We Believe… In Action, -MS exemplary practices included Fish Time, our advisory program; differentiated instruction; our looping teams; and “common language,” our shared beliefs about teaching middle school students. NMSA visited our school twice in the past two years to document and recognize the Best Practices and Middle School Philosophy that —— is all about.

That’s all I’m going to say for now.

    But that should also make you feel awesome! To have someone interested in having you as a part of something so fantastic.

    I had a great interview at that school and they would have hired me if the other teacher on the team wasn’t new, too. If you get in, they are GREAT. They are my ideal school.

    Jamie — It does…but I guess that just won’t sink in right now. Or I won’t let it. I don’t want to feel too awesome about it all and get all egotistical. ;-) *lol*

    Jen — How did I know that you of all people would know which school it is? :-) That’s great to hear that someone else feels that they’re a great school. I had heard a bit about them when I was student teaching with Kay Voyer, as she’s another big backer “This We Believe.” I’m really hoping this works out. After all, it’s not that far away. So it’d be great to “move up” in that school.
