    It is for a 3rd and 4th grade combo teacher. I received a call today asking to come intomorrow. I have sub orientation scheduled at the same time in another district. I hate to cancel the orientation, but this is for a permanent position. The only experience I have is student teaching and subbing and this will be my first interview. I am so excitied and nervous!

    Contact the district where you have orientation and explain your situation, asking to reschedule. Hopefully, they can take you at a later date, if needed. I'm sure they've dealt with this before. Otherwise, fingers and toes are crossed for you!!!

    Thank you everyone. I talked with the substitute coordinator and she is going to allow me to do one-on-one orientation next week.

    My interview was alright. I was at a table with the principal, special education coordinator and the preschool/Kindergarten head teacher. I found it strange that the preschool teacher was there because this was for a 3rd/4th grade position. It was a short interview and I don't think I impressed them much, but that is okay. I was asked about classroom management, difficult students and parents and to describe a typical morning in my classroom. They said that I should hear something by tomorrow.

    Where was the interview located? I had a interview on Tuesday and it sounds like we had the same interview at the same place.

    Yep it was the same place. Very short interview. They only asked me 6 questions and the pay is way low for the area but its more than I am making subbing.
