I was just wondering if you guys have portfolios and if so, do principals take the time to look at them? The reason I ask is because last yr. when I interviewed for teaching positions, none of them actually took the time to look at it. So far this yr I have had 4 interviews and 2 have looked thru them. On Tues. I had an interview with a principal and an assistant principal and they sat down and we all huddled in a group and went thru my whole portfolio. They complimented me greatly on it too saying how that is what a portfolio should look like. The principal today glanced thru it too and told me I had spent a lot of time on it. I really appreciated the fact that they took the time to look thru it. It really bothered me last yr. that no one looked thru it. I realize that sometimes interviews are on a tight schedule, but I was always told in college that it was important to have it but sometimes I feel like what's the point. Even tho I know having a great portfolio will not land me a job, I think it def. shows them my organization skills and shows what I think is important.
