Okay, I'm feeling so down! I had an interview last Tuesday, and I received an email reponse from that principal commenting on my passion and that I did well. He said that if I was the right fit for the position, I'd be hearing from him soon. The district is closed on Friday's during the summer, but it's now been a week, and nothing. Yesterday, I went to an interview that I should have "rocked!" It's what I have taught for the past 6 years. It was like the position was written for me! I, however, "tanked" the interview. I walked in and one of the interviewers had a stern look during the entire process. "Open mouth, insert foot." I brought samples from my classroom and left them with these materials. Last night, I sent them a very professional thank you email. I explained that I let my nerves get the best of me, because I was so enthusiastic for this opportunity. I also explained that I have always been able to effectively articulate my thoughts in staffings, parent conferences, team meetings, and IEP meetings. On Thursday, I have an even more intense interview for basically an administration position, but if I couldn't even handle yesterday's interview, I'm in trouble. I am so frustrated! I really wanted a change this year. I haven't officially heard a no, but I'm not very hopeful! Thanks for listening!
