    I can't believe it! I have three interviews on Thursday. They are all at great schools. The first one is at 10:00 am for 1/2 day kindergarten, the second is at 11:15 for a second grade position (pretty sure it is only a one yr position), and the third is for an all day Kindergarten.
    I'm so nervous. I don't even know what to do.
    I do know I need to leave now to get my allergy shot and tutor a my student who is in the hospital!

    It's your turn, Jaime! I think it is great that the third interview (by which time you will have had some practice and are really relaxed!) is for the full-time K position (I think that is the one you really want?)!!! Knock'em dead.

    Good luck Jamie! I too all of a sudden have many interviews. Had one yesterday. Have one Thurs for kindergarten long term subbing in for most of school year. Another Friday for prek special ed in same town as one I had Monday. Then next Mon I have another for 1st grade. Looks like we're on our way to hopefully getting hired. I'll send those positive thoughts your way. Good luck, and please let me know how everything goes. Can't imagine running around in this hot weather to 3 interviews in one day. I'm almost glad mine are spread apart. Stay cool!

    Wow Jaime, good for you! By the third one you will be a pro! Good luck to you... Know some information to throw out there about each of the schools (and try not to mix them up!!! ;)), I think that always impresses them that you did your research and the job is not "just a job" for you (even though it usually is :))

    Actually Sarah I have worked at two out of the three schools LOL. So hopefully I won't do any missing up!
    I even have the curriculum for all three schools. So hopefully I will get one. I just want a teaching position. And the I would love to be at any of these three schools. One is 5 mins from where I live now, the other is 2 mins and the third is about 40 mins from here and 30 from my mom's house. But we are looking into buying and the third one is in a town that has the cheapest property taxes in this area.

    Good Luck to you! I hope those first two aren't scheduled too close together. Most interviews that I have had lasted at least an hour, most cases, for an hour and a half.

    I told the principal of the first one I had an interview at 11:15 and asked if he had another time. He said he didn't but I think I will be fine.
    If I am out of there by 11 I will have 10 mins to spare. The schools are only about five minutes apart.

    Wow, JaimeMarie, I just found this thread today as I wasn't online yesterday. I'll be praying for you tomorrow. At least with so many interviews, you won't have time in between to get really nervous. You'll do fine!

    Thanks Everyone!
    I woke up this morning at 2 am, 4am and finally gave up at 5:45 and got up. Hmmmm think my nerves have kicked in?
    You know the funny part is I feel most prepared for the second grade! How silly is that, I have always wanted to teach kindergarten. Why do I feel most confident for grade 2?

    Today is the big day!! Good luck, and breath. Say a prayer right before you go in... it always helps me. Listen for the question and then answer after you thought about it. GOOD LUCK! Let us know this afternoon how things went!!

    Good luck Jaime! I will be sending positive thoughts your way today!

    Maybe second garde is your calling??? I change my mind everyday about which grade I would like better! Some days it's second, some first, some it's K. But like I said to you before, anything K-3 would be great!!

    You will be great today! Stay confident! :) :)
