    It's for a fourth grade position. This is my first interview of the year and I feel really rusty. Yikes!! I'm going to review some of my questions tonight and hope I do well tomorrow.

    Hey all! I think everything went well. I guess it was a screening interview and they are interviewing 16 people for 2 4th grade positions. They are doing 2nd interviews next week so I hope I get called back for that!

    Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you get a second interview. Ok... what did you wear? Hee- Hee! Just kidding. Everyone has been talking about interview fashion lately - wondered what you decided to go with. GLAD it went well. Second interview... in the bag! (I hope!)

    So sorry you didn't get the job--

    However, there is an opening here in Southern Az. in a GREAT school district called Sahuarita Unified School Dist. They are currently advertizing for a second grade position at Sahuarita Primary School. What is great about the district, beside their excellent reputation, is the fact that they are located a short 15 minute drive south (straight freeway) from Tucson, in one of the most beautiful areas in the country. Perhaps you should consider the move to Southern Az., as there are quite a bunch of teaching opportunities in the following districts:
    1. Amphitheater Public Schools
    2. Marana Public Schools
    3. Flowing Wells Public Schools
    4. Tucson Unified School Dist.
    5. Sunnyside Unified School District (Tucson)
    6. Vail Unified School District
    7. Catalina Foothills Unified School District
    8. Tanque Verde Unified School District
    Tucson is a wonderful treasure, and actually is quite cooler than Phoenix, due to higher elevation.
    I wish you all the luck in the world!
    Scott

    Yeah I found out last night. I saw the school district calling and was excited. The P asked how I was doing and I told her I was doing well. She replied, "I hope I don't ruin that..." Hmpf.

    I even applied for a Wisconsin license for this too. $168 down the drain.

    So sorry reverie. I agree it is better to find out sooner than later because the waiting can be torture. Did she tell you anything or just that you were not moving on to the next round? Just curious if P was helpful at all.

    She said it was because I wasn't as familiar with the concepts she listed as some of the other candidates. They have a reading intervention program and I have never worked in a school that had the exact program that they had. I am familiar with Title 1, but this is a different program I've never heard of. Maybe it's because I worked in a private school or maybe it's just not a Minnesota thing (this was a Wisconsin school where I interviewed).

    There was something else I hadn't heard of also having to do with spelling.

    I don't get that just because I haven't encountered these programs before in my previous school or internships that I wouldn't be considered to teach there. Frustrating.

    I agreee reverie. I don't understand either because it's not like you couldn't learn how to use the programs that they use. Here's looking forward to that new opportunity that is going to be coming your way.

    That just means (as much as the situation stinks) that something better is coming soon! And at least this interview gave you some practice to get back into it;) :hugs:

    :hugs:
    You really don't want to be in a place anyway that doesn't want to take the time to train people. :p They would have been able to have you do the program exactly how they wanted. Also I would think they would have weeded out people perhaps by their resume or application if they were looking for people with skills with particular programs...especially with 16 people. That's a waste of your time and theirs. :2cents:

    Thanks everyone for your support. I am going to keep my chin up and keep trying for the remainder of the summer.

    Regarding the programs that I hadn't heard of, after she explained them, they seemed very easy to catch on to. Oh well.
