    Last week I emailed a principal that I was interested in a teacher position for a kinder job at their school. I attached my résumé and asked to be considered for an interview.

    So today, I get a response from the P and she said thanks for your interest in their school and she would be happy to add me to this list of applicants to review for an interview. I would absolutely LOVE this position. So do I respond?? Or wait it out...

    That is great that you received a response! I have been a similar situation before. I would go ahead and send a thank you email like, "Thank you very much for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon." Or something along those lines.

    Yes, I would thank her for her response and use the opportunity to express how interested you are in the job. (Just something short and sweet, though).

    Thanks! This position is in a small town 20 miles from my house. It would be great for me to hopefully have this come through for me. It's so tough to get a job where I am. Each teacher position openings get like 700 applicants or more for each one. It's very the "who you know" to get a job. And being out 10 yrs of public teaching is hurting my chances. It's frustrating when you know your a great teacher.

    I agree with the others- a simple "Great! Thank you! I look forward to meeting with you." is all you need.

    Then I would not ignore her email :) Maybe say something like, "I look forward to hearing more about any upcoming positions and meeting with you soon." A little psychology...you're putting the idea in her brain that you'll be meeting her for an interview :cool: You want her to remember you!

    Had my interview today! I think it went great but I know they are interviewing all day long so my competition is tough. I won't hear anything back until next week to see if I get a 2nd interview with the team. So I really hope I set a good impression today so I can come back. It looks like a great school to work for.
