    I am a new teacher who interviewed for a position last week. The interview went very well lasting nearly 2 hours. I received a tour, saw what would be my classroom, and felt that the Assistant Principal who I spoke with really enjoyed the interview. Aside from answering all of the questions to a T, I did a tailored powerpoint presentation on how I would be a good fit for their school. Post-interview, I sent follow-up letters and emails to the Principal and Assistant Principal. Past that, I phoned the school to ascertain a timeline for the process of a decision. I was told that they were very impressed with me and would call me in the next week.

    So after all of that...are there any opinions as to what anyone thinks my chances might be???? Any advice would be very much appreciated...

    It sounds like you really impressed them! It seems like you were very prepared for the interview.

    I'm not sure there is much else you can do now, but wait. You did the letters and the phone calls already. Now it's up to them to see if you will be a good fit. :) Good luck! :angel:

    Hi and welcome!!!

    It's hard to say. It sounds like they were very impressed. But you never know what happened on the previous or succeeding interviews. Hang in there and apply everywhere, just in case!

    follow-up/i'm virtually employed...

    so today I received a call from the principal of the school that I spoke of in my previous message. he basically said, we were very impressed with you and I am anxious at this point to speak with you. so, to make a short story even shorter, he wants me to come in for a short meeting which I assume is leading up to a contract signing. I believe I have received a job and one of the main assets of my interview was this website and the support received through everyones information. thank you all so much...
