First one of the hiring season Unfortunately, it is in the middle of the day so I have to take the day off to go. I hate how this works out, because I always feel slightly deceitful and neglectful of my responsibilities to my current school. That's how it goes, though. I do not feel comfortable telling my principal that I am interviewing because there is a long-standing culture of administrative hostility towards teachers who are known to be considering other positions. I like my current school, but it is very far. This job is at a school 40 minutes from home, which is a huge improvement over the 80-90 minute drive to my current school. Last year I had several interviews, and I felt that my experience and advanced degrees were a liability. This is a financially healthy district, so maybe that won't work against me.
