    So out of the blue I get a call on Monday night at 7:30(!!!!) from a principal wanting me to come in for an interview. I was surprised because I applied to this district back in March.

    I interviewed yesterday at 10:00 AM and she tells me she wants to choose someone by tomorrow (today). I thought the interview went fairly well.

    However, no call today so now I'm really bummed :(

    Sorry, I just wanted to rant a little.....

    Also, I called the P today (she was in a meeting) to see if she had chosen anyone and she didn't even call back, which of course has added to my bummedness......

    I know it's hard, but try to do what you can to remain calm! Drink green or chamomile tea, exercise, spray lavender throughout your home (Febreeze now makes some products with lavender.), or watch your favorite movies. Try not to call the school too much. Did you send a thank you card or email?

    In my first position, the principal took almost 2 weeks to call me after my first interview. Then she called me in for another interview. (190 minutes total for both interviews combined.) I felt that I kind of blew the 2nd interview. She called 2 days later to hire me.

    For my next position, I interviewed on a Monday, they called my references on Wednesday, and I heard from HR on Friday with an offer. The HR representative was actually working from home, since our district is closed on Friday's for most of the summer.

    Good luck! :)
