    Thank you everyone!!!!! Ms Bee...

    Be yourself.
    Be confident and passionate about teaching.
    Be very enthusiastic and DONT STOP SMILING.
    USE that portfolio.
    Give out brochures.
    Talk about a professional book you are reading.
    Have your classroom planned out in your mind. You want to draw a picture in their heads about what it would look like.
    PLAN YOUR READING PROGRAM. READING, READING, READING is HUGE! When they ask you about reading, talk for 10 minutes.
    Talk about small-group math.
    Talk about how you build rapport with students.
    A lot of other stuff will come to mind.

    You can do it!!!!! Good luck!!

    Hahahah well MsBee, to be honest there wasnt a whole lot of time to breathe because I just kept talking. Try to have a lot of substance to your answers and communicate everything you want to say. After finishing each answer, I let out a big exhale and had to force myself to relax a little bit. Feeling relaxed is KEY.

    I recommend making a Word document with bullets for all the major questions you might be asked- and then all your ideas underneath. This helped me to organize my thoughts. I basically put everything I wanted to say on that sheet and then kinda studied it a few days before and then RIGHT before I went in for the interview. When I was asked the question, I would remember all the major ideas I had on the sheet.

    Congrats!! Tiny little kids scare me (I just know I would crush one with my giant feet!), but I'm sure you'll have a ball. My mentor in my induction program is a first grade teacher and loves it. In a way, it's probably the most rewarding grade to teach in that you see real progress from the beginning to the end. Kids can't write their name in the beginning, but are writing simple sentences by the end. That's awesome! I'm a middle school teacher. The progress isn't as evident for me. But I love it!

    Thanks everyone! This seems like a dream. Pinch me!!
    I am going to do paper work tomorrow, and then I am going into my classroom to BEGIN sorting through all the old teacher's stuff that she left.

    YAY. :)
