    The school that I really want to work at called me this morning for an interview!!!!!!!! I go tomorrow after school. I've got so many butterflies in my stomach. It's been a while since I've interviewed anywhere. :(

    I totally forgot about that!!! Maybe it's a sign that it's meant to be. :p

    I'm having to quell the negative thoughts of they'll probably hire someone younger, prettier, smarter, with a better resume, a better interviewee. I've got to stop!!!

    Woohoo! Just remember to breathe. Take two different lesson plans that show different sides of your teaching style. Include rubrics, if you have them. Make a list of questions you have for the school. BREATHE.

    When I saw the title of the thread with all the !!!!!s I could see you're excited. Then I immediately thought back a year ago when I was called for an interview. In 2 days it will be exactly 1 year that I interviewed for this job. I was just as excited as you are and all you need are positive thoughts. Every contract signed starts with an interview, so this can be it!!
    I also remember when I was waiting in a room for the panel, I overheard some secretaries saying that they had 38 applicants, and I immediately felt overwhelmed thinking of how much competition I had. Then I said to myself: they will hire 1 person, and that could be me.

    So believe, that this can be it.
    Good luck!!

    And maybe that someone will be you! Don't worry about others. The others are all a part of what you can't control. Control what you can which is being the best you you can be. Everything else will fall into place.

    Good luck to you! I know how hard it is to stop thinking about all the other candidates - I do it ALL the time (currently job searching myself) - but as others have said, they have to hire someone, and it very well could be you! Go in there and SHINE! :)

    I'm really rooting for you, especially after reading your post yesterday. :hugs:

    Go in there and do you. :) They'll recognize an awesome teacher when they see one. Only good things to come!

    Thanks for checking! I want this job soooooo bad! The super and principal seem awesome, and they have so many things to offer. I think I answered their questions well. I kind of flubbed on one about discipline. The way I worded it kind of made it sound like I contradicted myself. :( The interview lasted an hour, and they gave me a tour of the school...making me want the job that much more.

    They're going to hire someone by March 3rd. I'm getting ready to head to Walmart to get some envelopes because I'm typing up a thank you/follow up letter tonight. And, um, it might help that the super made the connection between me and my BIL - they coached together for a long time and are still friends. Politics in a small town sucks, but it is what it is.

    I hope beyond hope that it works out. I honestly don't think there's anything I could have done differently, except that one question kind of tripped me up. :blush:

    Thanks to all of you for the kind words of support and encouragement. :)

    ETA: They seem to have really high expectations for their teachers and students, but I feel like they give their teachers and students everything they can to help them. I have to be honest, though, they seem to have really high expectations, like really high. That kind of makes me nervous. :unsure:
