I had a great second interview today. At least I think it went well - I felt freely to be myself, like I was talking to a friend. It's weird talking about what *I* have to offer...kinda like having to *sell* myself and toot my own horn. I've realized that I do have a lot of different talents, skills, and abilities to offer. I'll know before Sunday, whether or not I got the job. They have first, third, fourth and fifth grade openings. They asked me what I preferred, and I expressed interest in first and third grades. So, well see. I feel like I would be a really good fit in this school, as my beliefs and teaching style seem to fit the schools. I hope they feel the same way. I have a really good feeling about it. Although, they seemed concerned that I have had a lot of preschool experience, where things have been more "fun" and not like elementary school. I expressed that in student teaching, I did a lot of planning with guidance from the mentor teacher by the curriculum. The principal asked "What would you do if you didn't have any textbooks and only curriculum." I said that I would draw from the curriculum and refrenced to my student teaching experience, where I used the curriculum as a guide and pulled lessons out of it that fit the students needs, I also drew from other teachers knowledge and reliable teacher websites. They looked through my portfolio and really seemed interested in me. Although, when the principal saw my educational philosophy, she looked over at the other teacher looking at it. It seemed like a positive look, but I couldn't really figure it out...? I guess I'm worrying too much. But I keep wondering what she was thinking. Anyway, sorry to write a novel.
