So I was called for a job interview for a school I never applied to. I'm a bit nervous, to be honest. This could be a really cool job, and I don't know much about the school or their programs, so that's not good.

Oh, well. Wish me luck!

Is everyone getting a job recently? Goodness me.

I student taught & long-term subbed in the district. I didn't even know this job was available. Actually, I don't think it's been posted, yet.

Good luck!

Did they at least inform you what the position is that you're applying for?

Yeah, it's an English position. The principal told me that much
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 12:23:35 PM EST (GMT-5)

AWESOME.

Well, it seemed to go well, and I should know if I got the job on Friday.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:03:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Good luck, snowbdr! Have you done many other interviews?
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:06:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, lots through out my life, but only a couple for teaching.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:08:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Good luck with the interview.

Hope you get the job.

What kind of stuff do they ask you?

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:19:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Things like:

How would you increase the literacy of students?

How would you handle discipline in the classroom?

Why do you want to be a teacher?

that long? oh! that is only two days, I am thinking it is Monday again

Yeah, the principal is out of the district tomorrow, so Friday it is.

I hope I get the offer - then I need to decide if I'll take it.

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:53:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
maybe you will decide in the next few days whether you want it or not

why would you not want it?

10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:56:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pay is a bit lower than I expected and the insurance in the package is just for one, and I'm married (and wanting to start a family) and we don't want to keep the wife's insurance - it's crappy and expensive. Although I think, if offered, I could negotiate the insurance to be included, which just leaves the lower than expected wages.
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:56:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
so is it a different district?
10 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/1/07 - 3:57:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
hmm that is too bad. Good luck!

Yes, it's part of Livingston Educational Services Agency through the Hartland School district.

It's an alternative ed high school. NOT a charter, but not the main H.S. either.
