    I went to a huge area job fair today, armed with mini-folios and a big mouth!!!

    One of the last districts I went to had a Sped person going down the line , pulling out candidiates. (My badge says Language arts) I spoke up and said "I will be next week" my ansewr caught him off guard so he came to speak with me. I explained that my Sped exam had been cancelled and rescheduled for July 5, and that I am driving over 100 miles to take it so I don't have to wait.

    He asked me some questions and then told me to stay put, went to the table and looked at a list, made a phone call, and then came and asked me to come back in 45 minutes. As I walked away another gentleman from the district reminded me to come back. So I felt good, they wanted to schedule an interview.

    45 minutes later the second gentleman sees I have returned, breaks from his conversation, gets my packet and asks me to step out. (I figured he was gonna tell me to come back after I take the test)

    He makes a call (to a principle) and then hands me the phone. The principle asks me to come over ASAP, so i do, we talk, tour, and Talk some more (over 1 hour, just us) then she tells me that even though I am ACP (not ACP friendly district) and I have not yet passed the exam she is keeping the job for me, call her as soon I get scores!!!!!

    From the time I got in that line until I got a job, less than 3 hrs!!!

    Great school, great district, close to home, my dream job!!!!

    Thanks to all the great advise and encouragement from this board!!

    Hey hdemza, I believe I went to the same job fair as you. This was my second teacher job fair so I knew what to expect. But I got an interview the same day too that was at the school that needed the position. I was excited because after I spoke with the representative form the school ( the AP) about 15 min. later he came to an other school booth where I was standing in line and asked if I could come in for an interview! For my first teacher interview I thought it went very well, The principal told me that they have one more candidate and they would contact me rather I got the position are didnt get it. I have not heard anything yet so I guess I am still in the running.

    Wow, That's great. I'll keep my fingers crossed. my whole experience was so informal, the principal was wearing a t-shirt and jeans, she was at the school working. I never expected to get the job on the spot!!.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Did you do alt cert? I f so through who?

    Thanks, i am getting very anxious, but now my mind is also racing with all the things I need to do. my class is an expansion on the existing program at that school, so the pricipal said she ordered the basics.
    Also i know that i will be responsible for the academics, and do not get TE's I have to build the curriculum myself as my kids will be on all different levels!!!! So another million things to think about!!!!
