Hi! I've been reading the thread on interview questions, and have really enjoyed it. I actually just found this site a couple nights ago as I am currently preparing for an interview - that I haven't even gotten called for yet! Background: I teach special ed preschool, and its part time and the commute (especially with two little ones of my own to drop off) is too long. I want to be a reg ed teacher (I am dual certified) in 1st-3rd. I tried to transfer within my district, and did not get the job. It was a shock to everyone in my building that I didn't. I've sent out tons of resumes and gotten no response. The town that I live in had soem openings earlier this year, and even though I used my connections, I did not get called. I recently heard of a last minute opening in third grade. When I went down to re-submit my app, I was lucky enough to run into the principal! He recognized my name when I introduced myself, and said he had just been looking at my application! I told him I had heard of the new opening, and he said he's been thinking of me for that. He also said he's be moving very fast and not interviewing a lot of people. A 6th grade teacher in the district stopped by later that day to put in a good word for me, and he said based on that conversation, he'd be very surprised if I didn't get called for an interview. That was Tuesday. Today is Friday. No phone call! I'm getting worried! School starts in a week! My friend the 6th grade teacher said not to worry yet, that this principal is notoriously slow about this stuf. BUT my mext door neighbor said that the letters are going out in Saturday's mail to tell the kids who their teacher is. Does this mean its a done deal? They've already filled the position? I am totally freaking out! This is the job I am meant to have! I just know it! I can't stand the wait, and now I'm getting worried that I got all excited for nithing and I'll be going back to my old job after all.... thanks..
