    Be yourself. Make personal connections to what they ask you about and let your personality and desire to teach be heard.

    I've never had an interview with other candidates, so I have no advice, but wanted to wish you luck!

    Don't get caught up in what the other candidates think. You need to focus on your answers/knowledge and how to project yourself calmly and confidently. You can't control what they say, or how they act - so don't sweat them. Worry about what YOU CAN control. Remember, being able to work as part of a team and collaborate with others is a welcome trait. Show them that you can do both...and do it well! Best of luck to you! :thumb:

    I feel the interview went alright, at times I felt like I was on the View. Will know by the end of the week, if I have a 2nd interview. Keeping my fingers, toes and whatever else I can crossed.

    update: roundtable interview went well despite my nervousness. I walked away from that experience with some insight from other teachers. I was called to come in for a 2nd interview today at 10. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

    How Exciting! Good luck!
    Could you tell us more about the first interview? I am curious about one with other candidates present- I've never had one like that. That must have been nerve-wracking! I would love to know more about how it went and how you handled it. You obviously did well! Congrats! Good luck!
