    My interview for a fifth grade position was today. I feel like it went well but who knows? They said they might be calling back for second interviews but they may not. They'd have a decision made by the end of next week and will recommend to the board on 7/12.

    I do feel like they liked my responses. :)

    I was able to hear the girl before me interview with them. She was a new teacher and she kept using the word "stuff" and "ya know." She didn't have a lot of substance behind what she said...For instance, they asked about TCAP (our standardized test) and she said she came in the week before, saw it administered, and was there to do something else after it. Then they asked her about her classroom mgt...she said well I didn't have one but I used my mentor teacher's and well her's was good. Never went into to explain what it was. Well other than the kids would have to call home if they misbehaved. Poor girl. I bet that was her first interview...I should have told her about this forum! I just didn't think of it.

    So by this time next week, I hope to be a fifth grade teacher again! :) (See I am trying to be positive)

    Sounds like a great interview! Go enjoy your vacation and hopefully it will be enough of a distraction to get you through to the 12th! :)

    :) I think I have no choice but not to stress given the fact that central office is closed next week so nothing much can really happen! P's take off next week knowing this...
