I'm a music teacher! I just moved back to my hometown and my hubby and I both teach music. It's a small county with very little movement. We're currently on as subs and we've applied to all 5 special ed jobs that are open. The secretary at the BOE told us that it wouldn't hurt for us to apply as there is a serious shortage and we may have a shot. Well, I got an email today scheduling an interview for a secondary special ed job! I'm not sure as to the nature of the job but from what I've heard all the positions are pretty mild and some are even collaborative. My husband and I are both starting grad classes this fall towards a masters in special ed so that by the end of next year or so we'll be more marketable. I guess my main question is.... am I nuts??? I have a ton of books to read before then so I don't go in there feeling like a total dummy. I know all the people who do the hiring so that's not at all intimidating. I'm really excited about this because I'm getting tired of teaching music and I'm getting tired of searching for jobs every summer. The special needs students at all my past schools were always my favorites. I also look forward to being able to use my music "expertise" in a classroom setting like that. Any insight would be helpful.. such as the most important thing I should know going into the interview, what kinds of questions they may ask and what I'm really getting myself into! Thanks.
