    17 interviews are a lot; maybe you will get an offer early & won't have to go to all of them. Let us know how you make out.

    Why?
    We've had several members in the double digits with interviews this year!
    That is a lot in a week, but in the format in NC, I'm sure I could land the same.

    The reason I had so many this week is because I have already interviewed with a district and was put into a hiring pool. Teachers in the pool are guaranteed a job. But I still have to meet with the principals to get a job. So I had one scheduled today with a school in the same district and another interview in a different school district that pays more money.
    Friday I am set up to meet with 14 principals and interview for their openings in the teacher pool district and finally on Friday afternoon I have an interview with another great district.

    So yesterday my son and I drove up to Fort Worth and stayed with my brother. I got up this morning and had the two interviews and hit six flags with my boy to enjoy the rest of the day.
    The first principal called me about 6:30 this evening to offer me the job. 4th grade math

    The hiring pool Started back in May. I actually first interviewed for it on my birthday. So what a great present to find out two weeks later I was in the pool.
    Its with FW ISD.
    Im so lucky I was able to get into the pool.
    If your in the DFW Metro. Grand Prairie is opening two new elementary schools. They are still shuffling teachers around so they haven't started hiring yet.

    kevmic,

    where do you apply at to get into this pool of hiring? I know it's too late this year but I can think about it for next year. Thanks and congrats on your 4th grade job!

    Did you accept the offer? Or are you going to go through with the rest of the interviews? I guess this might be the one of the very few instances where you can be selective and make sure you take the job you really want :)
