I have my 3rd interview (ever) tomorrow. I'm hoping, praying and crossing everything that the 3rd time is the charm. It is for 4th grade, which is the closest yet to my experience (15 weeks student teaching in 3rd grade). What do you think really helped put you above the rest? I will definitely be dressed the part. I've read through the interview thread countless times and practiced my answers. What do you put in a mini portfolio and how is it presented? I have an online portfolio- this has my picture, Bio, philosophy, 2 week teacher work sample, letters of recc, student teaching evaluations and resume. I really, REALLY, just want to knock this one out of the park. I've had one so so interview, and one with a panel where I was a finalist and didn't get the job. Thanks for any tips!
