Today was a pretty good day. On the way to lunch, a charter school called me to schedule an interview for tomorrow morning, and then while I was shopping for something to wear to that, a public middle school called me to schedule an interview tomorrow afternoon! :haha: The morning interview is at a school I've already interviewed at twice, but the lady on the phone said that the principal had been out of town when I interviewed, so I was actually talking to someone else. Maybe I would have known that if the interviewer had told me who he was! I took this interview mainly as practice. Based on my previous interviews, I don't expect this school to be the place for me, but hey, you never know. The real P could be completely different from the person I talked to last time. This is the school where you have to teach a pretend lesson. I'm doing the same lesson as I did last time because I've already got all my materials for it and apparently the P never actually saw it. I think I'm interviewing for a multi-grade middle school math position, but they're never very clear on the phone. The second school that I'm interviewing at is a middle school 8th grade social studies position. I think this would be really interesting, but I don't know much about teaching social studies. All I know is that I passed the 4-8 Generalist test and I liked social studies when I was a kid. I haven't been called for an interview since JUNE, so today was really exciting. I've since read two books (Inside Secrets of Finding a Teaching Job by Jack Warner and Clyde Bryan and Teacher Interviews: How to Get Them & How to Get Hired by Robert Pollock) about interviewing and feel much more confident than I did in May and June. Also, I've read a LOT of the job seeker threads here on AtoZ, so I'm feeling pretty good. Please send positive thoughts and any advice my way!
