Firstly going to say sorry this is so long Today I got a phone call from a private school I would love to work for saying I had been shortlisted for a position at their school next year. I applied for 2 jobs with them; junior school teacher (I am early childhood trained and would have LOVED this job) and support inclusion teacher (not really as motivated but applied at last min because it's a job & I just finished my masters in special ed). Last week I get an email saying the junior position may not be needed anymore since it doesn't look like anyone is leaving but the interview I am having is for the Support Inclusion and will be working with primary and high school children (I don't feel that comfortable with upper primary as it is). I also had a follow up email with the position description, the selection criteria I have to write and forms for 2 references to fill out. I have one referee who can do it but the other is meant to be my current principal or manager...but I don't have a current one, so who should I ask? The interview will also be with a panel...I have only had about 2 interviews in my 5yr teaching experience and didn't do so well due to nerves. It all seems like a lot of work/stress for a position I am likely not to get...but I really want to work at this school. I have also found another position to apply for as a Kindergarten Teacher (children 3-4yrs old) being paid a state teacher salary but it is in a childcare centre (government is making all kindergarten teachers be university trained and slowly introducing this). Have never worked in a childcare centre before (did practicums at uni but feel more comfortable in primary settings) but am wondering if I should apply for it? It is just so hard to find work and there really aren't much options but I'm always worried if I get one of these jobs I might miss out on a future job doing what I really want to do. Just feeling very confused.
