    I don't know what grade but it's at a great school! Actually my first pick! I can't believe it! Just wanted to share the good news and encourage people to go to job fairs!:D :D :D I want to thank everyone for sharing interview questions and being so helpful. What a great forum for beginning teachers. =)

    Wow, that's awesome! I saw your "interview question" post, and I guess you did all right (understatement!).

    Cheers, mate!

    I get so overwhelmed at those fairs! Way to go! Could you give us a few more details about how you went about being offered the job? Any job fair strategies you can share?

    Thank you all! Yes, job fairs are very overwhelming. I felt like throwing up while waiting in anticipation to get called up. It was a job fair where you have 1 interview with a random administartor versus just walking up to various school tables.
    You feel like you are a piece of meat at a meat market. But I just told myself that I was special and had lots to offer. I also thought that if I didn't get hired that it didn't matter, that I would have left with more expereince and put my name out there anyway.
    I would reccommend dressing really nice, investing in a nice suit. I don't know why but alot of the teachers dress very casual. I think I stood out a little because I really dressed up. It's not all about how you look but I think it makes a good first impression.=)
