I went into the BOE to resubmit an updated application in my hometown while visiting. It is a rural small area where everyone knows everyone. I intended on just running it in and continuing on with my other task that I needed to complete. Because I only intended on submitting it and leaving, I wore jeans and polo type shirt. While submitting it, the director of schools came in and asked if I had a few minutes. He wanted to take me to the high school that has the position open to look at the lab/classroom. So off we go to the high school where he, the principal and v.p. give me a tour of the school and discuss training, etc.. It was somewhat laughable because I would have at least wore khakis had I know I was taking a tour of the school and make a first impression with other teachers/staff but I did learn a valuable lesson.. Always dress nice when dropping off an app, not just an interview! On a side note, I have talked with the V.P. and Principal several time since the meeting and the wardrobe mishap didn't seem to effect there willingness to hire me.
