I have my first teaching interview in over a year for tomorrow and I am freaking out. Interviews are not my strong suit at all and I feel like I am unprepared. It would have been for Thursday morning, but I couldn't do that one, so they had to change things around a little bit and make it tomorrow afternoon. The funny thing is is that with this district, this school was not one of the ones I emailed about an opening. I was telling my friend who works for the district (not that school), they must have just pulled my info and she goes, "No. Someone had to have recommended you or something because I can tell you, they don't just pull. 90% of the time, people get interviews in this district because someone knows someone." And then she told me that at her school, there were 97 applicants, but only 7 were interviewed because someone at the school had put in a word for them. SO...I have no idea now how to act. I have no clue who would have put a word in for me (if that is how I got an interview that is). The only thing that could be a possibility is that my coordinator at the school I am teaching summer school currently, she works at that school that I have an interview with..so maybe when she observed me for a couple of minutes last week, she recommended me? I doubt it..but it would be cool if that were the case. Sorry about the long post..I am just super nervous now and I know I am going to be a wreck tomorrow going in to teach summer school for a couple hours and then having the interview shortly after. I need some words of encouragement..advice..I'll take anything!!!
