:yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn: First I am TIRED! So I had three in one day, one phone interview scheduled for tomorrow and one on the fifteenth. One was in lower mid Michigan, one in the thumb region, and one in the Detroit metro area. District A: Interview was a brief 20 minute panel screener interview. They did a behavioral interview, which surprised me, considering the time constraints. They told me several times to keep my answers shorter, as they didn't have time for longer answers (but it was hard to do so with the types of scenarios they gave me. IThey also treated me as if I was blessed to be offered an interview with them. I thought it was for a full time Adult ed position, and in the end I was given two different answers about what the job actually is....first it was resource then it was a full time co-teaching position. At the end of the interview I was allowed to ask NO questions. Surprisingly, I have already been offered the 2nd interview. District B: One on one interview with the principal, an hour long screener interview. Principal told me straight out he liked me and was likely to offer me the 2nd interview, and told me to expect a call either way tomorrow. He liked some of my answers and said I brought up ideas he hadn't thought of, but agreed, my way was best (ie like teaching a lesson geared toward the specific iep goals of my student to the entire class so the SPED student doesn't feel singled out and that quality techniques can be for the top student as well as the IEP student). This one ran over because he kept asking me for more of my ideas. I am pretty sure that will get the second interview, he even told me to keep Thurs open. District C: They called late Friday to set this up and I called them this morning to say I would be in the area, they worked me in, changing their schedules to make it work. Even when I was an hour later than estimated (hint never try to get ANYWHERE in Detroit when it is shift change and there a Tigers AND Lions game), they made it work. This one is teaching in a elementary school and they are aware I have little experience in a classroom at that level (one on one tutoring I do). They loved my one on one experience, liked what I had to say.....and told me so. They asked me if I was sure I was wiling to relocate (told them I was already packed....lol) and how soon could I move, then asked me what I need Salary wise, which I have never been asked before. They are only doing one round and they will be making a decision in a day or two. The staff is wonderful, my sister who navigated for me needed to come in a cool down and they tried to bring her water, showed her the adult rest room, everyone greeted her. They were fantastic too me, I got a great vibe from the school. They told me to not worry about what I don't know about Elementary ed as the person who would be my mentor was in the interview and was prepared to provide all the support I would need to adjust to that grade level (2-4). I was given the impression So here are my questions.......would you take the second interview with District A? I just felt such a bad vibe from them and I STILL dont' know if it is a part time or full time position. And District C is in a rough area, and the traffic is HORRIBLE! TERRIBLE! TERRIFYING! But the staff is fantastic, the students great and the atmosphere is wonderful. OH, one last thing, the interview I have in the UP requires a sample IEP, Parent response IEP, me to teach TWO lessons before the two interviews......if I get one of the others offered, would you still go to the interview that is five hours away??? Thanks....off to put up my sore feet.
