    The school system I'm talking about is in my hometown. The 8am interview is 13 miles from home. The 11am is 8 miles.

    Research the district tonight. Know a few facts about test scores, demographics, etc and casually mention your newfound knowledge at the interview. For example, "I notice that 92% of your students receive free/reduced lunch. I have experience working with socioeconomically disadvantaged students." Or, "x percent of your students are ELs. In my precious district, x percent of my students were ELs, so I used strategies such as (insert strategies) when working with ELs."

    UPDATE: First one is over. Went in around 7:50 out by 8:35. Standard set of questions.... he said I interviewed well.... IMHO, nothing super outstanding yet not a bad job either... he said he doesn't know when the job will be filled since the teacher hasn't put in his retirement papers yet but he put in his intent. Chalk this one up to a good interview experience... I met with this P last year and was a runner-up so anything can happen.

    UPDATE: 2nd one done. The P said it wasn't really an interview but just a meeting to have a conversation. The school is losing 2 teachers to retirement. A long time math teacher and a science teacher. Science teacher taught chemistry, earth science, and anatomy. The P was intrigued with my chemistry certification. Meeting lasted about 15 minutes.
