I submitted an on-line application to a district on Monday. On Wednesday, I was called by a principal from one of the schools to set up an interview for Friday. But... I was so excited to get called, that I didn't bother to ask what position it was for! Lol! It's so hard to get a job in NJ, that I was thrilled to hear from her. Online, I had applied to everything from pre-k to 4th. Though I searched and searched, I couldn't find anything specific about the job openings in this district. However, I looked into a board agenda (I was desperate), and found that a fourth grade teacher put in for retirement recently at this school. While 4th grade isn't my first choice, I would be more than thrilled to work in this district. Here's my dilemma-- I am a new teacher. The only experience I have is in student teaching and substituting. While I subbed in prek-grade 4, I student taught in pre-k (junior field) and 2nd (senior field). I am an early childhood major! I'm more than ready to learn, but I don't have any experience with fourth grade!!! How can I spin the experiences I DO have, to make them look good for this position?
