Hey everyone - I have an interview coming up at a district that needs someone ASAP. Without getting into it, the current teacher has some issues and that spot is now a leave replacement. School starts Tuesday but they are calling me in on Wednesday. So two questions: 1. I currently work at a private school that is over an hour from my house. On Wednesday, we will be at school but no kids until Thursday. I have been searching and searching to get out of there - what do you think I should tell my admin? I always feel guilty making something up - should I be honest and say here's what's going on? 2. For the interview, the secretary said instead of a demo to bring in a writing sample about a good lesson. That just sounds so vague to me...she's like yeah structure and all that. Any ideas? I'm a great writer just want to get it right.
