    Still waiting for response after demo lesson last week. Just hoping I actually hear a yes or no from the district. I've been on interviews where I made it to the last round and never get notice from the districts. I am teacher working in a public school in the Bronx. I am very fortunate to have a job and I am grateful. I've been trying to get a teaching job in the suburbs for the last 8 years. It seems like there is a lot of who knows who in the districts here.

    What was the longest you had to wait to hear back from the district you interviewed for?

    Has anyone experienced an interview where there was about 5 demo lessons for one position?

    I bet you hear after the long weekend. I am sure they decided at the end of all the interviewed lessons. Hang in there. I hope you get it!

    A week is long, but not unheard of. Good luck.

    I've waited a week and got the jobs but I've also waited a week and not got the jobs. A few times I never heard back at all or got a rejection letter a month later in the mail.

    Thanks jadorelafrance for your reply. I received so many rejection letters before that it makes me not want to get my hopes up for this. Hoping that I finally get a yes and not a no.
