    Hey all,

    I recently was interviewed for a special education teacher position at a really good school. Apparently the principal of the school I sub at recommended me to the school. The school then called me to come in for an interview. What I was wondering is how likely would someone be to get hired if a principal recommends you themselves for a position? The school told me they are still interviewing until the end of next week.

    The principal opened a door for you, now it is your turn to do the rest. Go in there and shine!

    The principal recommendation certainly won't hurt!

    I actually already went to the interview and felt pretty good about it. This was actually the school that I did student teaching at as well. And one of the teachers interviewing me was the one I actually worked with.

    I had a very similar experience once. I lost my job due to a decline in numbers so the P recommended me to another school. At the end of the interview the P told me which jobs were open at the school and asked which one I would like. The rest was history.
    Good luck!
