The student teacher I've worked with for the past school year has finally been offered a job--at my school. She's gotten other offers, even in other districts, but she held out because she wanted to continue working with us. Her patience (our district is exceedingly slow about such things) paid off both for her and for us. I talked to her today about the classrooms that will be available next year!
By the way, she's the last student in her credential program cohort to accept a job offer.
