    I had my phone interview last Thursday with the school district in the metro area of Minnesota. It was scheduled at 1:30 and they called right on time. It was for one of four science teaching positions in four diff. elementary schools in their district. They asked several standard questions and I did my best to answer everyone in a clear manner. It was very nerve racking though as you couldn't see anyone in the panel so it was like talking to thin air. However, it ended on a very positive note. They said they would let me know by early next week(week of the 25th). However, they called me in less than 24hrs and offered me a job!!!!! I will be the new science specialist for the elementary school!

    What this means...
    1. I have to move back to MN in about two weeks and I have to get moved in to a new apartment and get my classroom ready before training on the 26th of Aug.

    2. It finally has happened...I got the job offer I was so eagerly waiting for. However, it is amazing how easy it was for me for this job but all the others have been near impossible to acquire....so it really is true, WHEN THE RIGHT JOB COMES UP, YOU WILL GET IT!!!

    3. now I have this fear, they are going to call me back up and take back their confirmed offer. I don't believe I will feel like this is real until I am back in MN with my signed contract in my hand and I have seen my classroom for the first time.....ANYONE EVER FELT THIS WAY??

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE THIS YEAR AND THANKS FOR ALL YOUR POSTS AND SUCH AND TO THOSE WHO HELPED ME WITH EASING MY PHONE INTERVIEW ANXIETY THANK YOU SO MUCH :thumb:

    Yes, I have felt that fear that nothing's set in stone till the contract is signed. Just try to breathe through it and don't let the fear overwhelm you. In my experience, these fears do not materialize. Go with the joy. Think positively. And know that if the HIGHLY UNLIKELY event occurred, that you would be able to handle it.

    Congratulations!!! :) I felt the same way as you this past spring--that my school and this job was just "right" for me. I only hoped that I was right for it! I'm so happy for you!

    Oh, and in regards to your fear, I just woke up from a dream a few hours ago that I called the principal because I was going to be late for the second interview (I had overslept) and that they took back their offer. :( I was so sad in the dream, but so very happy to realize it was only a dream. No worries--you've got this!

    My job was easy to get as well. I got the job on the spot during the first interview. I had previously interviewed for 7 schools and had to do multiple interviews and demo lessons.

    Congratulations!

    Congrats to you! I understand how you are feeling. I interviewed with a district 1200 miles away (hubby is being transferred there) & was hired that day. I'm still pinching myself, and I still worry that something will happen to mess it all up. For example, this week is new teacher orientation. I explained to my principal and HR that I will be unable to attend, as we are not moving until this Saturday. They both said, no problem & I can make up the missed sessions this fall. That being said, I still worry! I'm very happy for you. Best wishes!
