    I have an interview tomorrow at the school I was an LTS for last semester. I loved the school, staff, kids and had a really enjoyable first semester teaching. I have a part-time teaching job now and financially, I REALLY need a fulltime! I can't wait to finally start a year with my own kids and not be a sub or come in half year or be part time! Please send me some good vibes that all goes well tomorrow! :)

    BTW, this is what I'm planning on wearing (it's going to be HOT tomorrow!):
    - Dark wash pencil skirt
    - Short sleeve white button down shirt
    - Dark grey suede looking slingback heels

    Sound good?

    Fingers and toes are crossed. Make sure to emphasize how well you know the procedures at the school but are open to learning any new ideas. You'll be great!

    I just found the reflection papers my seniors wrote about our class last semester; many of them highlight aspects of my teaching and different assessments that they thought were helpful. Should I bring these to my interview and pass some around for people to skim through?

    Depending on the questions, you may reference some of their answers in your answers, but I know in my area, the interview team would not skim through papers during the interview.

    The interview went well -- they asked me to come back tomorrow for a second interview!

    While I was interviewing one of the teachers said, "the students (that I taught) last semester heard you were interviewing for this job and one of them wrote you a letter of recommendation." She pulls out this letter that one of my students wrote to the administration trying to convince them to give me a job! I was so flabbergasted!! (Obviously in a good way!)

    I think you will do wonderful! I wouldn't necessarily bring the papers but would reference that you have read the papers over, thought about how you would continue/elaborate on/change certain things, and how you value self assessment.

    studentTeach ~ sounds like a great interview and big hugs to your students for thinking enough of you as a teacher to try to help you get a job :) Those letters speak volumes!!

    Did they give you a timeline of when you would know anything?

    I know - I'm very appreciative of this student!! After they invited me for a second interview I asked if I need to do a demo lesson and they said no since I already taught there for a semester. I know there are at least two of us going to the second interview tomorrow... I think after that the only remaining step is an interview with the super if I make it to the final round! It seems like things are moving quickly since school will be out soon and they probably want to be finalized in their decisions for next year.

    Update: The second interview today went really well. I made it into the final three of the original ten and they said they will call me on Monday to let me know either way. Fingers crossed! :)

    They offered me the job!!!! I found out standing in the juice aisle at Whole Foods lol they asked if I wanted to call them back and I was so anxious I just had the entire conversation in the grocery store! The next step is to meet with the super and sign a contract to make it official -- I can't wait to get that done! Yay!!!

    Congratulations!

    I hope I get the job I interviewed for *crosses fingers* They told me I would know on the 20th because they're waiting on the school board to meet tomorrow to see how many they can hire.. so I just get to wait and see! :whistle:

    I think I'll get it though because the principal reeeeeally likes me and kept saying (like 5 times) about the 'great advantage I had' because I student taught there... ;)
