Interview Update

This afternoon was the interview. I was surprisingly calm once I got into the room and started the Q&A session. The group was asking me some standard teaching questions and recording their ratings on a sheet they had in front of them. I didn't feel like I said anything earth-shattering, but I also wasn't thrown off by anything they asked.

I was told that I was one of twelve candidates today, and that they were looking to narrow down that pool to five for the second round. Imagine my surprise when I received a phone call inviting me to a second interview before I even got home!

So, now I get to go back on Thursday for round two. I will meet with another group (I think) of teachers for more Q&A, and then I will teach them mock lesson. I've never done this before, so it's pretty stressful, but at the same time, this is supposed to be the fun part. Let me show them what I can do!

I'm anxiously awaiting my "teaching assignment" from the principal so I can start planning.

I'll let you all know how it goes!
