A new start

Today started out pretty crummy..... I received my last paycheck from the school corporation. That's it. The end. My nearly 8 year run with LCSC has come to an end. Everything was supposed to work out so perfectly....I had a job lined up right after I finished my master's degree--at a school where I have worked previously. I knew the staff, the kids, the building. It was comfortable. It was safe.
Then a promise to me and my future salaray hadn't been kept. I could either stay with the corporation and take a large paycut for all of my hard work or I could resign and find a new job and recive a salary I deserved. 12/31/12 I quit my comfortable job.  It was scary. Unsure of what the future held.
2 weeks passed. I put my application in with 3 different contract agencies. I had multiple emails and calls within days. Still uncertain of where I would be and what I would be doing.
Until yesterday.
I had a job interview with Kokomo Center Schools. After a 2 hour interview and a tour of the elementary school, I knew that this was going to be a really awesome place to work--that is, if I was offered the job. By late afternoon my recruiter called me and told me that I nailed my interview and that I had an informal offer. As of today, I officially have a job!!
I'm nervous, scared, excited and feel blessed.
I begin this new journey next week!

Congrats on your new adventure! Change is scary - my job is currently up for cuts due to budget. Ah!
Hope the job is going well!
