    I have an interview in the morning for a 1st grade position at a local private school! It came all of a sudden, and I'm so excited!! This is my first choice school outside my current district. Does anyone have any last second advice for interviewing at a private school?

    Ask about your duties outside of teaching your class...

    Good luck! Be yourself and show a ton of interest in the things that make the school "stand out" from the rest.

    Ok...interview over! I felt welcome from the first few seconds of walking into the school. The secretary offered to get me a drink, and that was a tremendous help. I was 15 minutes early, and she helped me to relax just asking about my daughter and small talk.

    When I got into the actual interview, there were only 2 other people in the room, and it took a couple of questions for me to fully relax. I didn't have an answer to one of them, and the headmaster said he'd get back to it, but he never did.

    The second person in the room was one of the teachers who is staying next year, and I noticed she kept nodding her head at different points, and I took that as a good sign.

    Anyway...the interview lasted about 45 minutes, and we talked for another 10 minutes or so afterwards. The teacher was talking about things I had talked about on my application, and she realized we are a lot alike. Overall, I have a good feeling coming away from the interview.

    I won't know anything until next week on whether or not I got the position.
