Firstly, thank you all SO MUCH for all help you've given me this summer trying to find a teaching job. I can say that there's a decent chance I wouldn't have gotten this job without the resources this forum has to offer. So as some of you may know, I finally got a call back from a high school about a physics teacher opening about two weeks ago. The first interview was very short and I was given a packet of questions to answer. After they reviewed the packet, I was invited back to give a 25 minute demo lesson (my first real lesson in front of a large group of students), which went surprisingly well. I was then informed that I was one of two final candidates for the position. My final interview was today with administration, and all the questions were philosophical. I prepared by reading a lot of the interview questions posted on the forum and felt that the interview went a whole lot better than I had thought it would go. I got a call about an hour ago saying that pending phone calls from a couple of references, which they had to get on record, the job was mine. So apparently the interview went well enough! I thought the job application process was tough, but given that the school year starts in 8 days and I have no formal experience and no student teaching experience, its going to be a whirlwind of year, but I'm absolutely looking forward to it.
