    Yay!!!!!!!

    Just try to relax, take a deep breath, and show them your desire to teach! If there is a web site for the school, try to think of some questions or something to say that will let them know you've done your homework.


    The interview practice thread is chock full of information.!!

    Good Luck.

    Wonderful news!
    I take it the application process worked out for you!?
    I agree with the above suggestions.....study their website and be prepared! That first question...Tell us a little about yourself...is so important.
    There are terrific interview practice threads here. You have plenty of time to practice!
    Get that interview outfit together and pop an altoid in the car! (I always do that!!) LOL
    Good luck!

    Congratulations on your interview. I just had my first interview and I was quite nervous going into it, but I quickly realised that the questions were easy, exactly the type of questions we see in the "interview practice" thread on this forum. Now I can't wait for my next interview!
