The final interview was fun! I definitely felt a bit more relaxed and didn’t lose my train of thought this time around (thank goodness for small favors) and we laughed, a lot.
Ohhhh, but then again… maybe I’m remembering it wrong and I was the only one laughing while he sat there horrified, nervously chuckling while he eyed the power button, wishing he could “accidentally” hit it and run…
Either way, it’s done and I should know in a week.
As a gesture of faith in myself, I ordered a large rolling duffel bag last week that was 70% off. I’m hoping I will be delivered good news and my new luggage all on the same day! *^^*
A note about the interview: once again, I prepared for a behavioral interview and also thought out even more, “What would you do if…” classroom management/situation answers. That was a good thing!
Also, I used my checklist for the first interview and rechecked my Skype settings, background, lighting, all of that.
The questions I wrote down to ask were about (there were more, but were answered in the course of conversation):
- Contacting current teachers (although, several have blogs and I’ve gleaned a LOT of information from them. It sounds creepy haha but if the blogs weren’t meant to be read they wouldn’t be out there, correct?).
- Preparing lesson plans ahead of time (I have a binder full from ed. classes that I’m working on tweaking then scanning/saving on to a flashdrive)
Also, this book was suggested as an excellent reference so I’ve ordered it and will definitely be reading it before I go (as of today, there are quite a few used copies on Amazon.com)!
