    At least I think I did. I interviewed this morning with a 2nd grade team in the district I used to teach in. I felt that I answered their questions well, for the most part, although there are a couple of answers I look back on now and wish I had said something different. Oh well.

    Otherwise, I think I presented myself well. The principal said that people in the district had a lot of nice things to say about me.

    I don't think all of this guarantees me the job, but I feel good about the interview.

    I sent a thank you email to the team and principal. Do you think I should send actual notes in the mail? They said that they would decide by Friday, but it could be sooner. I'm not sure the notes would get there in time.

    Just got called by the principal. Did not get the job. :(

    She's going to keep me on a list of strong candidates in case something comes up.

    Sorry! At least you didn't have to wait long and you know you did your best! That confidence will carry over to the next interview!

    I am feeling rather low right now, but I do still feel I "rocked" it.

    I thanked her again by email and asked her to pass on my information to other principals if she gets the chance. I may still also send the Thank You notes.

    You should still send the Thank You notes. She's already very impressed with you and sending a Thank You will be even more impressive. It will also give you the opportunity to once again remind her to pass on your information to other P's and to keep you in mind should any other openings pop up.

    I'm sorry. I have always thought the rejection was worse when the interview went well.

    Nothing yet. But she told me the principal she interned under also attends our church, so I'm about to email her.
