Okay, so I had an interview on Friday for a 0.6 FTE high school chemistry position (first interview all year!) I finally heard back today, and they just called and said they'd like to meet with me again tomorrow. No doubt this has to do with some of the not-so-great things on my resume and in my past... First of all, I was fired from a private catholic school. That's a long story... ultimately they had issues with my classroom management. Problems that I think the worst of which were some ipods or Starbucks in the classroom. But since it happened more than a few times, they decided I couldn't handle a classroom. Last year, I didn't get a job until October, when I took over a 7th grade science class. To be brief, I went insane. I couldn't handle the fights, the violence, the police dragging kids out of my classroom, the nonexistant parents, the special needs I wasn't trained for.... so I got out of that and subbed the rest of the year. I didn't make too many friends that way either, unfortunately, because I was so miserable in that position I wasn't really doing my best. Basically, I've really screwed up some jobs and burned some bridges. Any advice on how to spin any of this stuff? I desperately need this job!
