I mailed out 3 applications last week for jobs recently posted. Yesterday, I emailed the principals requesting an interview. One answered back and said a committee recommends people for interviews, and she wished me good luck. Another one emailed me back, and she said she was going to contact me next week to set up an interview!! I have been feeling, in the past couple of weeks, that this is my year. I am definitely more prepared than last year....I go to the weekly core teacher meetings, I am a TA in classes I haven't had since I was in HS (which has helped a lot), I have a letter of eligibility for hire from the university (b/c I'm completing an internship), and I have worked at getting my resume and cover letter into better shape. All in all, not landing a teaching position for this current school year has been a blessing and a tremendous learning experience. The only things I need to do now are relax, take a deep breath, prepare more for the interview, and try not to be as petrified as last time. This interview will be my second teaching interview ever. The last one had 9 people on the panel. I got to wondering....how many people interviewed you on your interview(s)?
