I had my first big girl interview this past week and it felt good! I left the interview feeling confident in how I responded to questions, I loved the lesson I taught, and I wore a great outfit. 😉 They told me that I would hear back on Friday or Monday, and since I didn’t hear on Friday I have suffered through the weekend. I very much want this job opportunity to work out, but I am trying to prepare myself for if it doesn’t. Even if it ends up not being the job for me, I feel much more prepared for future interviews now that I have the first one of my plate. I was so nervous before my interview. I knew I needed to teach still, so I focused that energy into my lessons and they went great! My social studies class that morning was stellar because I was so awake. It was a great lesson about redirecting my fear and excitement into something positive.
Writing my lesson plans for this week was a breeze. At this point, I am only teaching my WIN group, math, and writing. This past week I used my free blocks to observe in the Title classroom and this upcoming week I will be shadowing our behavior specialist. It is nice to have the opportunity to learn outside of my normal areas. I know these extra opportunities will benefit me a lot in the future.
I am really scared to go to school tomorrow. I will be so excited if I get the job, and I am worried it might be awkward if I don’t. Please continue to send good thoughts my way especially in the next 24 hours!
