Hi: I have two years teaching experience in Va. I had to leave NH to actually get a teaching job. At the end of last summer I decided to move back to NH. The problem is that teaching jobs are hard to get around here. I have no problem getting the interview. It's just that I don't get picked. I am again waiting to hear back for a long term position. I interviewed on Thursday and he the vice principal told me I'd hear back on Friday after they interviewed two more people. Well I never heard back. I don't know what to think. I thought my interview went well. I just want my own classroom. I don't know if it is something I'm saying or doing at the interview that makes people not want me. My interview for my VA job was done over the phone. I am dressing appropriately. The problem is that I look young. One of my teacher friend said she thinks principals think I look young and I'm small so they doubt I can handle the class. She said its the farthest thing from the truth. I did have a very tough class last year and I'm honest about that too. I don't know what to think. What are some things they can convey the message that I really want to teach in the school where I'm being interviewed? How can I tell if the interview goes well? Do you think I may still have a chance since I haven't heard from the vice-principal yet? It breaks my heart that I know I'm a good teacher yet can't get a job. I'm thirty and just want to be able to teach. I moved back to this area because all my family and friends are here but I'm losing heart. I've done the mock interviews and get good response from that. What is going on?
