More Interviews....

And so it continues... Monday I had 2 interviews, both in the same school district. The first one was at the high school and lasted almost an hour. The second was at one of the middle schools and was only 15 minutes... I'm glad I didn't drive all the way up to Poughkeepsie just for that. I think the interviews went well, but there's really no way of knowing for sure.

Next week I have 2 interviews on Tuesday... one for a part-time position in Buffalo, and the other one is up past Watertown, NY. And within the last 5 minutes, I just got 2 more interviews for next week... one on Wednesday and one on Thursday.

This is insane.... :)

First Post

So today mark's the beginning of my new blog. My goal is to keep this up through my first year of teaching to kind of document the adventures that I will be sure to encounter. I'll be starting with the interview/application process, and going forward from there. I'm sure other aspects of my life will enter into this too, and that I will eventually stop using it, but here's a start.

So far, I've interviewed at 7 different districts, and have had 3 interviews with one! I have 4 more interviews scheduled over the next two weeks, and will probably get a few more phone calls before the end of the month. I've gotten at least one rejection from those 7 districts, and I'm definitely expecting one more soon. After all my whining about not getting any phone calls for interviews, now I wish people would stop calling! I don't have the time, money, or energy to keep doing this.

Keeping our fingers crossed that I get hired next week... should be getting called from 4 different districts with interview results. Maybe I'll have options?! I'm not getting my hopes up about that though. Just trying to get through the next 2 months of craziness and give up control of my life... time will tell how well I do with that.
