I had a sub interview this morning in the #1 district in the county. No pressure, right!!?! It was GREAT! Best interview I had all summer. She said she had about 20 questions but that she was only going to ask me a couple of them. Most of the interview turned into a conversation. About my experiences, me leaving my current job, location, her experiences, etc. It was a really nice conversation. =) To top it off, she gave me great advice and said so many positive things about me. She said that she will recommend me to HR and that she will even send them an email asking them to consider me at future 1st round interviews for full-time positions (I was totally shocked by this. I think my chin hit the floor). She also talked about the good things I was doing with my current job (I've had this job for 4 years and my supervisor has never said anything positive to me...not even a "good job"....it was so nice to hear it from this principal) She talked about what I should do as a sub that would help me earn a long-term position or even future full-time positions. She even said that I would be great at a new summer program they started this year (recommended me to do it next year). She made me fill so comfortable and made me feel that leaving my good paying job with benefits was a good thing since I have such a passion for teaching. Well, I still have the goal of getting a full-time position but I'm really happy about what happened with this sub interview. I have a good feeling about this district. It's still only middle of July so something may pop up. If not, I'm totally happy with being a sub in this district. I can't stop smiling. I even took the rest of the week off from work. along with some others. I go back to work on Monday and I hope my terrible job doesn't ruin my joy. I still have another 1 1/2 months there! ah! Here are the questions I remember from this morning: 1. How do you plan lessons? 2. How do you deal with a difficult student? 3. How do you make sure students are learning? 4. How do you differiate instruction? 5. Tell me about a time that you helped another teacher/colleague. 6. Why do you want to be in this district? (she didn't let me answer this because she went straight into a different conversation...lol) Most of the time, she looked at my resume and talked about my experiences. Have a great day everyone!!
