I was always against working where I went to school. I wanted to be somewhere new with new people. With the thousands of unnoticed applications, unhappiness with subbing in districts where I thought I would love,little to no money in the bank, I got a random call from the district where I attended school over a decade again. They said that the viewed my information online and asked if I was interested in a first round interview for next school year. This was a voicemail. I thought about it for a few minutes before calling back. I ended up calling and scheduling an interview. This district isn't known to be a top district, but it's a district where my teaching experience and skills would do well in. Has anyone ever interviewed in the district where they are from? What are your thoughts? I personally don't know the people that I am interviewing with but I know a few people that work in the district (I don't talk to them on a daily basis but if I see them in public, I will talk to them). Are chances better for me with getting a full-time job? The person who called me said they were only interviewing about 7 or 8 for the first round (I was shocked). Last month, the job I almost got in another district, the first round consisted of 30 people.
