    Be confident, give a firm handshake, look them eye and shine :) * Have a fake interview with yourself

    *take a second before you answer each question to calm yourself

    * if they ask if you have every used DI or are familiar with RTI or something else you have never heard of, be honest. Tell them this is what you love about teaching, the opportunity to always learn more

    Good luck and keep us posted :) crossing fingers and toes for you at 12:30

    I think being calm is the most important thing because you are able to think of things more easily. So my last minute piece of advice is to arrive early and sit in the car for a minute. Check your teeth for lipstick, take long deep breaths and say some positive affirmations, Stuart Smalley style!

    Knock em dead!

    Good Luck! Be confident, and look through the interview questions thread. That helped me a lot when preparing for my interview. :)

    So I am back..it went well


    The principal told me that if I do get hired, that HR, not him would contact me...I have never had a principal say that to me before......I wonder if that is a good or a bad thing?

    I'm glad it went well!

    I think who contacts you is just a matter of the district's procedure. I was contacted by an HR person when hired for my last job.
