    He's doing more moving now then I've seen him do any of the other times I've watched!

    Kinderkids, anything goes sounds good. You're right, all we do is discuss random things on the other threads anyway.

    Ok, since this is our "anything goes" thread, let me just say that I'm pretty nervous about my interview tomorrow for that long-term sub position.

    I think I'm pretty good at faking confidence! haha I can act as though I'm not nervous when I really am, so that's a plus I guess. The last interview I had just wasn't that great so it makes me nervous. The last one I was on the principal didn't seem happy with any of my answers. For example...
    Him: "What do you consider to be your biggest weakness?"
    Me: "Well, I tend to procrastinate. It's something I really worked on during my student teaching, but I would probably consider that my biggest weakness."
    Him: "Procrastinating can be a good thing. What is another weakness you have?"
    I had no idea what to say so I said...
    Me: "I don't always speak my mind when maybe I should."
    Him: "Well, then, how are you going to handle the veteran teachers that think you don't know anything because you're new?"
    I wanted to scream! So....I'm just afraid to have an experience like that again...

    I think I would have said(about the Veteran Teachers( that I will be too busy to worry about what others think of me!

    yuck............I don't blame you for being nervous, but you'll do great. I always said my biggest weakness is that I am too soft hearted.and compassionate.....wear my heart on my sleeve. That I'm sure isn't the right answer either. How do you have a "right" answer for that kind of question?

    haha...that would've been a good one!

    I think I said something along the lines of, "Because I've recently graduated, I may have new ideas that I could share with the veteran teachers and because they have much more experience I would be very excited to learn things from them."

    Exactly..there really is no right answer. I was just so caught off-guard because I hadn't prepared myself to come up with more than one weakness! haha

    It's hard to think of a weakness when you are perfect. I have the same problem!!!!!!! hahahaha.........you could have said "interviews" for one of your weaknesses! or wait no you could have said the A-Z TEachers Forum!!!

    i always say that I am too easy going, that probably is not the right answer either! Here's the question, Is there a right answer?

    I'm not sure that man would've been happy with any answer! He had an answer for everything..it was awful, I left the interview with such a bad taste in my mouth. I was almost glad I didn't get offered the position.

    My fingers are really crossed about this one, though. It's a 4th grade long-term sub position from Dec.-March. The best part about it is that it's 4th grade, which I love. It's beginning teacher's salary and well, it's my foot in the door! I figure it'll be a really great thing to have on a resume too.
