    I applied to a teaching job 2 years ago. It was down to me and the sub. They gave the job to the substitute teacher. Anyway, this school has another job opening for this year. The woman to contact (and who does the interview) is the woman who interviewed me 2 years ago. Is there any special way you would approach this? Or would you approach it as if nothing ever happened? Could use some advice.

    I wouldn't act like nothing ever happened. I'd send an email to the woman and say something along the lines of being excited for another opportunity because you had such a positive experience 2 years ago.

    Excellent advice from MikeTeachesMath. There's a reason you came really close last time, and you'll have the chance to remind her why.

    What the other two said! Use it to your advantage. Try to bring back those memories of why she almost hired you before.

    And think about what you've learned and how you've grown since then.
