I am a new teacher and I had an interview for a position that I really want. I came up with an answer for all the questions I could think on paper and studied it before the interview and I learned all about the school. However, during the interview I seemed to freeze up and couldn't find the words to answer the questions. I answered but when they asked me to give an example or how I come up with procedures and routines I couldn't think straight. I told them that one of my weaknesses is that I can be soft spoken and the principal really encouraged me telling me that soft spoken people are often some of the wisest people. I also mentioned that I had studied answers and I knew what I wanted to say I just started blanking and the two teachers were saying that they were once in my position and not to let that worry me. I also sent an email to the principal thanking her for giving me the opportunity and she replied that it was a pleasure to meet me. They said they were going to try to make a decision that day and they would let me know either way and won't leave me hanging and I still haven't heard anything. I feel like I bombed this interview.
