    Hello my fellow teachers
    I just interviewed today at a christian high school. It went well. Reading the interview forum really helped. It was a very casual interview. The prinicipal asked me a few questions about my background, where have i been teaching, why did i leave my last school, what is/would be my biggest challenge in teaching. He then showed me a video of students and teachers talking about the school and the rundown of the school. He asked for references and he said he will get back to me later this week/next week.

    It's a small school...has about 65 students. The school is small in itself. I definitely wouldn't mind working there. I would be the only math teacher there teaching algebra 1 & 2, geometry, pre-calc, and calc:)eek: I need to brush up on my calc asap.)

    please pray for me :) . If I don't get it, it's back to subbing(it's a job right).

    Best of luck! I too, went on an interview this morning. I feel that it went incredibly well. Please say a prayer for me as well. With me being a new teacher, I know that there is a lot of competition out there...but would love to jump in this year!

    Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

    It's been about 7 years since I taught calc, but let me know if I can help WHEN THEY HIRE YOU :)

    UPDATE!!!

    I didn't get the job folks
    Unfortunately the person I was suppose to be replacing changed his mind about moving and is coming back to the school. :( . Oh well. I guess it wasn't meant to be. He did say he will keep me in mind to be a tutor if any of the students needed it. He also said I would be better off teaching at the college level. Thanks for all the well wishes.

    I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason! Don't let it discourage you, it's nothing against you, I'm sure you're an amazing teacher. It just isn't the school you're supposed to be at. Your job is still on it's way to you! ;) Keep your chin up! :hugs:

    I agree with Miss L. It was not meant to be. Keep your head up:) . Something will come around for you. I can feel it. I got a call today, interview tomorrow..for Spec Ed Pre-school position. I really want the job that I interviewed on Monday to come through, but I am certainly not waiting for them to call. I am going to keep pressing on!:D
