    I have an interview for a maternity leave interview on Thursday. It's for second grade and it starts about a week after school starts and then goes to the end of January. It's in a really good district less than half-an-hour from my house.

    I had to change my shift at work so that I can make it there with plenty of time to get ready. Also, I will probably drive there tomorrow to make sure that I know where it is and will be going over interview questions. Any positive vibes would be great!

    Thanks everyone! I'm glad that I only have a day to get ready for it (less time to make myself nervous, but enough time to prepare and make sure everything is all set).

    The most fun part is now instead of working at 6am on Thursday I'm going to work at 5am, so I can get through things and still have more than enough time to get there. I'll have to make sure to go to bed early tomorrow!

    Good luck! *When* you get the job (positive thoughts! :)) be prepared to start earlier than expected! In my experiences with maternity leaves, they are very likely to leave earlier than planned.

    Well, they called today to reschedule the interview to either Friday or Monday and I chose Friday so that I don't worry about it the whole weekend. Also, I just drove out there and it is much easier to get to than I thought, so that's good. And thanks for all of the wishes and luck!

    Well I just got back from my interview and I think that it went well. I'll find out if I made it to the next round (which would likely have two candidates going to the superintendent or assistant superintendent) early next week. Coming out I saw the next candidate and it was someone I had graduate classes with, which was strange.

    I didn't get it. The principal said that they hired someone with a lot more experience. It was nice of her to call and tell me, though.

    Hopefully! But if not at least I got some more interview experience, which ten days ago I really thought that I wasn't going to get any interviews this year. And maybe we'll both get some more interview calls soon, Jlyn!
