    I was feeling kind of down today, after I talked with a principal about positions open at the school where I tutor. Well, when I got home, I saw the number for a school in another county on my caller i.d. and when I called them, the principal set up an interview for Monday. I'm determined to nail this one. Wish me luck!!!

    I talked to the teacher that got the job at the middle school where I was tutoring. She said that she took her portfolio with her and she also made a packet for each member of the hiring committee with a cover letter, resume, a couple of lessons she had taught, and her letters of recommendation. I would have never thought to do something like that, but it obviously worked for her. It is what I plan to do.

    I know, 2 rounds and now off to a demo. I was just telling my friend I need to get into a different career field where there aren't a million interview stages/rounds! Haha.

    If I pass the demo round hopefully that will be it, although, I still haven't met with the super...so that could be the final round. Hopefully my demo blows them away!

    Earlier this year, I had a screening interview followed by an all day second interview. The second interview included a 45 minute panel (with 7 people,) a 30 minute lesson demo, writing of two essays, discussion of student data (with the other candidates) while the panel watched, and ended with a parent panel. It was intense! I was there from 9-2pm!

    On another note, I always bring a packet for each person on the panel. I include my resume, cover letter, letters of rec and a couple sample lesson plans. Panels always seem impressed by this. I don't want to seem "over-the-top", so I just print it out on nice paper and use a simple paperclip. I sometimes don't know how many people will be in the panel, so I usually make 10 or so.

    I had my interview this morning. I think it went well. The principal said he would call one way or the other. From what I understand, the superintendent may choose to not fill the position. He did the same thing last fall in another school in that district when a teacher suddenly quit. He made them switch their schedules around so they could do without the extra teacher.

    I really want this job. Hopefully, I will hear something in the next day or two.

    The principal called and I got the job!!!! I interviewed for 8th grade, but he switched it to 7th so that another teacher could move to 8th. That was fine with me. I actually prefer 7th. Anyway, I am so excited and so thankful. I was beginning to think this day would never come. I really appreciate the support from everyone here.
