Okay--Just heard the verdict.
Here is my email from Jaime:
"The word from Chris is that you would need your certificate to be active before applying for a teaching position in D303. He is planning on having the 4th grade spot filled before July, therefore you couldn't be considered for that particular spot.
So, after your certification is updated, file your resume with the district and see if you're called for any other openings in the district after July. I'll put in an excellent word for you.
Now that you know this...enjoy your weekend!"
So....I guess that is it. I am not surprised. That is what I expected his answer would be. Not sure why all this happened in this way, but it is okay. If anything, I will try and get my act together, so that I can put my application in (in July)....and just wait to see what happens.
The plan still stands for me to do at least another year of aiding (or inclusion aiding). Good thing I like it!
