I interviewed at a middle school 3.5 hours away from where I own a home. It is my 2nd teaching interview since graduating in May and they called and offered my a position today. This may seem strange considering the job market for teachers, but i turned it down. The interview went well enough, I just got the vibe that I wouldn't fit in with the staff. Normally after i research school and after my other interview, i can't wait to start teaching and get so excited. This time I never got that feeling, and I knew as the interview ended I probably wouldn't except it if offered. Interview was decent, I got some good feedback that will help me next time. The P was kind of off putting and that may have been the tipping point for me not wanting the job. Phone kept rining, he appologized put it on vibrate and set it on the table. Then would pick it up and see who was calling after it would vibrate. The interview lasted 2 hours, and the last hour was him telling me how awesome he was. 1 hour of hearing his philosphies and I couldn't get a word in anywhere. It felt strange to turn down the position, because all I want to do is teach. But, I know I don't want to have uproot my family and have my daughter switch school/ sell my house for a school i am not excited about. Anyone else ever turn a teaching job down and did you regret it later?
