    The interview that I thought the interviewers weren't paying attention...the interview that I had to create a lesson plan on the spot and freaked out....I GOT THE JOB TODAY! It's amazing. I'll be teaching for the gifted and talented grades 2-6- I'll see one grade level each day. The school is about 15 minutes from my house. I start August 24th, but my class doesn't start coming to me until Sept. 8th. I am so so excited and thrilled! Now I have to write up a resignation letter to the private kinder school...I am SO happy to be back in the district.

    I wish the rest of you still looking, good luck! I totally know how you're feeling and I will keep you in my prayers :)

    I had to create a lesson plan using the science curriculum given to me and modify it for a group of 2nd and a group of 6th graders. The lesson itself was on locating the cold receptors on the back of the hand. I know, WOW, hunh? After talking to the P, she said this...."We loved you because you showed a strong interest in this position rather than just getting a job. We weren't looking for all of the right answers but rather, someone who would be a team player and had a true enthusiasm for teaching." I hope that helps someone. I've had really great interview feedback from the past 5 interviews. So , go in there with confidence, knowledge of the position, eye contact, enthusiasm, and if you don't know the answer to a question- admit it.
