Well, I probably have my last interview of the summer tomorrow morning. This is sort of the job I thought I could "fall back on" if I didn't have something better by the end of the summer. Now it is feeling as if I would be really lucky to get it. This position is for a part-time middle school computer teacher in my husband's school. I finished the year as a long-term sub in this position last year after the teacher resigned. The middle school is small - only 3 teachers per grade level - and I am close with majority of the staff because of all my subbing and coaching. The school just hired a new principal and she has decided they need to fill the position because it wasn't going to be able to be swallowed up internally. I guess I've passed the first hurdle, which is that she is not opposed to having husband/wife in the same school. However, I was in the school today helping my husband unpack his new supplies and organizing things and one of his partner teachers came in to talk to us. She informed me that she is part of the interview committee (there are going to be three teachers and the principal). When she said this I felt my stomach drop. I don't know why I didn't think teachers would be interviewing as well...there always are. I guess it just made me really nervous because I will know all the teachers asking the questions. Most people would probably be stoked, but I want to throw up. I'm terrified now of not interviewing well. I have had four interviews so far and I haven't had a bad experience yet (besides always being the final two and not getting hired), but I keep thinking there is a first time for everything. Also, she mentioned that one of the other candidates is the daughter of the high school librarian. -I didn't need to know that. My husband told me to feel good about this because all of these people would do anything to have me work in the school and if they don't hire me the principal will have a plethora of people upset with her (community members included). I'm not sure if I want that. Plus, there is always the fact that I am technically not highly qualified to teach computers as a single subject. If there is one candidate that is, then she has to hire that person before anyone else. However, I don't think anyone was highly qualified. I know I would be an excellent asset to the school as a computer teacher, so I'm not worried about not having the skill...just the pressure of formal vs. informal. I like having interviews be formal because then you don't have to wonder if you're being too laid back. Maybe I'm not making sense. I have another beef about this whole thing, but this is too long. Any words of wisdom that won't make me cry or run to the bathroom?
