I'm back from the interview. I don't know how well I did. I was nervous because my father still hasn't had his surgery and his surgeon wasn't responding to any phone calls last night and isn't going to even see my dad until this afternoon (he's had symptoms of appendicitis since Monday morning/afternoon). Lasted about 10 minutes, they asked me a few questions. 1. Tell us about yourself. I told them I graduated from x University in May, finished student teaching in a Kindergarten in December, and I graduated with a 3.6 GPA. 2. Where did you student teach? I answered that and told them I was in two classrooms, one inclusion and one general education classroom. 3. What was reading and math instruction like there? I told them that I didn't remember the exact name of the LAL program, but I told them the general structure of it and I mentioned that they used Everyday Math. 4. In your application, you mentioned you collaborated with your cooperating teachers. How did you plan lessons during your student teaching? I discussed how I would plan lessons for math in the morning class. 5. They asked me a few little questions about how they ran their Kindergarten program at the school I student taught at. I answered them. 6. Is this your first interview? You seem a little nervous. I told them it was my second interview, I had an interview in another district shortly before graduation, but I was a *little* nervous. 7. Any questions? I asked the one about technology in the classroom and they answered both of my technology questions - they said they were very glad I asked that question. So they answered two questions with one answer, then they asked if I had any other questions and I told them I couldn't think of any. They said "Okay. You're probably going to start thinking of questions right after the interview and wonder why you didn't ask them. That happens to the best of us. So this was an initial interview. We'll be sending emails to those who get picked for the next stage of interviewing. Good luck and nice meeting you!"
