    I had an awesome interview yesterday. In fact, I really did not feel like I was interviewing at all. It felt more like a professional conversation, and I walked away from it feeling really good. This a.m., one of my references called and told me that someone from the school had called for a reference. I am so ecstatic right now :D. However, I also know that it doesn't mean yet that I have the job. I also have an interview tomorrow in a hard-to-get-into school district in the area, so I am trying to prep up for that one too. I will be happy with either one.:)

    Congrats on making it to this point :)

    The same thing happened to me yesterday. I went to a humongous job fair yesterday morning, and stood in tons of lines.

    I was about to leave when I decided to walk into one last line (only because it was a short one). After telling the recruiter a little about myself, I was pulled aside for an interview. It went very well, I thought, and I was impressed with the interviewer, an AP at the school I was being interviewed for.

    This morning one of my references called to say she received an e-mail yesterday evening asking for her recommendation!

    While nothing may come of it, it was the first response I have received from an interview and it was enough to boost my morale and to encourage me to keep plugging away!

    Wow! Congrats to you both. My interview on Saturday was the same way---a professional conversation. It was refreshing...I'm so used to the q and a interviews. My references haven't been called but I knew they wouldn't be since the p was going on vacation.

    Good luck...Keep us updated!

    That is awesome :) Congratulations! I have an interview tomorrow and I hope it goes like yours did! I would love it if it would be more of a conversation than an interview, I love it when it's like that cuz it just puts you at ease. Well keep us posted, hope you get the job!

    Well, if you haven't read my other most recent post, I was just offered the position about 10 minutes ago. The P is giving me until Friday to accept the position. She's also giving me a choice of what I want to teach, one of which is the grade and subject that I definitely want. I told her I would give her an answer soon after I talk to my husband. I am beaming right now from ear to ear. Now prepping for interview two, but am really leaning towards the job offered. Will let you guys know what I do.
