    After a week of agony :)lol:) I got a phone call about the pre-k position!! The asst. principal called and said he had good news...I'm in the top 3 out of the 20 they interviewed and they want me back for a second interview tomorrow! AAHHH now I am SO nervous! I have to step it up...this is my first second interview. :) Any advice?? Are narrowed-down candidates usually asked different kinds of questions? What should I expect?

    Since you know they like you, you should make this interview about what you can do for their students. I would bring a sample lesson plan, a daily schedule for prek, past student work, brochure, etc.

    What did I tell you guys??? Panic amongst principals is starting to happen. They want these jobs filled. Now is the best chance for you to find your job. Especially, people are getting jobs all over but LEAVING the job they were in. One persons NEW JOB is often an opening for another NEW JOB for someone else. HOPING everyone gets "the call" soon!
