After fishing around the application website for awhile, I found a link for "interviews scheduled" and found the position title! I was surprised to see it was a regular ed 3rd grade job (thank God I checked- I would have never been prepared for that one!) I would love, love, love to teach 3rd grade, but I haven't done classroom teaching since my student teaching (which was in 3rd grade). How do I "sell myself" as a classroom teacher when I've been doing sped for two years? Anything I should be prepared for as to concerns they might have for someone switching over? I think a couple of things from my current job would really help me in a classroom position: differentiation, documentation/data collection/RtI process, collaboration/communication, accommodations and modifications, and working with specialists. Anything else I should really focus on? Anything I could include in my portfolio that might focus on classroom teaching? I was thinking of bringing my student teaching evaluations- even though they're two years old at this point it's the only "proof" I really have that I did well in a gen ed position. Also, my references are all from my current school and in their letters wrote a lot about sped-specific things. I didn't tell them I was applying for classroom positions- I didn't even think I'd ever get an interview for one! Would it be appropriate to tell them I have this interview and ask them to really focus on just "teaching" things if someone calls for a reference rather than "sped" things?
