Well, the postings finally went up last week and I've been busy applying for positions. I've applied for 15 positions and today I got a call for an interview. It's for Grade 7/8 French Immersion for half time and English the other half time. I am excited, but I have mixed feelings because I've heard that the principal is difficult and it involves driving about half an hour. However, having a full time teaching job would trump all that. My questions are: If I am offered the position, how do I go about buying time to see if I hear from any of the other positions I applied for? I don't want to ruin my chances by seeming picky about what job I take, but according to how things work around here, this will be my only chance to choose and I wouldn't want to get a job offer for one of my preferred positions after accepting this one (this one was on my least preferred, but still okay list). Also, I chose not to give the name of my last practicum mentor teacher or the school's name. I just gave the grade that my practicum was and that's it. How do I address this if I am asked? That practicum was horrible (see thread, "Horrible practicum experience) I don't want to seem like I am hiding anything, but I don't want to cut my own throat either. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
