So nervous to interview with Assistant Superintendent

On Monday I have an interview with the Assistant Superintendent and the Principal will be in the room - I am so nervous!

Background:
-This will be my 3rd round (4th if you count the screening interview with the Principal a few weeks ago)
-I have no idea if I will be the only one. When the principal called to say they were recommending me to the super, I was ecstatic and she said not to be too excited haha, I still had one more interview that would be at least 30 minutes (Bad sign, right?)
-They called my references before I did the demo lesson last week. My references seem positive that they want to give me the job!
-I did see another person set up for a demo lesson after me. She was wearing a spaghetti strap maxi dress though.

The district is a small, rural one with a tight-knit community. I am not expecting a job offer Monday but I sure am hoping! (They have always called me the next day)

I will have my portfolio (with a full copy for the super and principal) and wearing a suit with my hair up. I feel pretty confident about my ability to interview actually. I am just incredibly worried that they recommended others to the Superintendent.

I am doing everything to take my mind off it but would appreciate last minute pointers!

Well, you've made it to round 4, so that is a good sign! the best thing to do is be prepared and go in as if this was your first interview, or if you had to fight for this job among 10 others; don't relax just yet.
I'm sure you'll nail it.

A spaghetti strap maxi dress?? What was she thinking?

Every time I've met with a superintendent, the job is pretty much in the bag. You just have to not blow it.

Thanks giraffe! Yes, I have fallen in love with the district and can easily picture myself there. I know things will all work out regardless and still filled out some apps this weekend. Good luck on your interviews this week!
