    I had my first interview for a 4th grade position this morning, and I think it went well! Some of the questions were tough, but I think I answered them well. I hate that I fumble through my words when I'm nervous though!! The P seemed to not mind, he kept smiling, so either he was laughing at me or trying to make me feel more comfortable. I'll think the latter! They told me they'll be interviewing today and Thursday, but they should contact me after that. It's gonna be a loooong week! Just wanted to say thanks for everyone's advice and all the posts on here, they are so incredibly helpful. Here's to hoping!!

    Congrats! You survived your first interview. Don't forget to send a thank you note reminding them of how you are a good fit for their school.

    Absolutely! I sent them out as soon as I got home, about an hour or so after the interview. It was kinda funny, I was all prepared for the "Why should we hire YOU" question and they never asked that. Oh well! Hopefully I answered their questions well!

    Soooo...I didn't get the job :(. Now it's back to the grind, taking my resumes to other schools in nearby counties. This is just so frustrating! I know there's still almost a month until school starts, so plenty of time for schools to decide if they need another teacher and to interview, but I'm so worried I won't get another one! Soo hard.

    It is tough! Sorry you didn't get the job, but you're right there is plenty of time. And remember if you haven't gotten hired before school starts you still have time, people move around and positions open up; a good teacher friend of mine didn't get the job she has right now until mid-October!

    I'm sorry that you didn't get the job. Keep your head up and keep trying. Every interview is more practice, and the more you interview, the more comfortable you feel

    I'm sorry, but as you said there is a lot of time (that's what I keep saying to myself, too!).
