    I have an interview today and I have another one on Tuesday. The one on Tuesday is for a tough principal in the district and I really really want that job. Its close to home, in an upper grade, etc...Would you email the principal and thank her ahead of time for the opportunity to interview with her? My thoughts is that it would put my name in her head again....Just a thought.

    I don't think that I would. Although it is a nice gesture, it may come across another way.

    If I were that P, I would consider it brown-nosing and you would come way down on my list. Sorry.

    yes don't do it. Just make sure that after the interview you write her a thank you note thanking her for your interview.

    I agree, the P probably has a lot going on

    :D:D:D:DI would not. Just say when you see her how happy you are to see her again and that you are so glad to have another opportunity to interview at her school. This comes across as heartfelt not brown-nosing. SMILE!
