When I interviewed for my current job six years ago my principal told me HG was the kind of school people come to and stay.
I really believed that was going to be true for me. I absolutely LOVE my school, my principal, and my co-workers.
Turns out - that isn't going to be me. My husband has accepted a new job with a different company. This new job requires us to move.
Though I am very excited about this move, I do not look forward to leaving my current school. It has become home and the people have become family over the past six years.
I definitely do not look forward to the interviewing process. I do at least feel more prepared now than I did when I did this six years ago. Now I have classroom experience to refer to.
I'm walking into interviews with three great letters of recommendation - one from my principal, one from a coworker, and one from a parent.
I feel fairly prepared, but I'm wondering if any one out there has some advice. Maybe you interviewed for a new position recently? Or maybe you have been on the interviewing committee at your school?
Though I have taught all four content areas in the past six years, I have only taught 7th and 8th grade. I LOVE my 7th graders.
I've been dreaming of what grade/subject God might lead me to teach at a new school. Though it would definitely be a totally different world, I think I would like to teach 4th grade. Part of me would love to have the same kids all day. My mind runs wild with ideas and possibilities.
