|Sorry no full length mirror at work but trust me my outfit is adorable ;)|
We all know it never plays out like it is in your head right?
Anyway my interview was at 9:10 but I wanted to make a good impression so I got there at 8:45 hashtag brownie points! Well the person that was supposed to interview before me didn't show up so I was the very first interview of the day which is good I didn't have to outshine anyone before me.
A nice woman comes out of the double doors and asks me if I am ready and quite positively I said absolutely with a big smile on my face. ((I have chronic B* face and I have to plaster a cheesy grin on my face otherwise Id look like I want to eat your soul.)
Right before we get to the doors she turns around and says oh by the way, there are 7 principals in here, not just one. Don't worry you'll do great.
I was already nervous but now I have S-E-V-E-N people listening to me, judging me, deciding my future. I was ready to die right then and there. However I was like I got this fake it til you make it right?
They each began asking me questions and guess what I was doing an awesome job! Of course I didnt say half the things I rehearsed in my head and I totally should have but I was just trying to stay calm and do my best to not throw up or start crying.
I had made it through 6 of the 7 principal's questions and I had an answer for everything and I was feeling pretty confident. Then the last one asked me what RTI was and I froze....
I have no idea if I answered this question correctly I just told them what I thought it was and told them I wasnt sure if I was correct but as a first year teacher my lack of experience is sometimes a weakness but I was willing to learn.
They didnt say how long it would be before they made a decision, I should have asked. Something else that totally slipped my mind *sighs*
When I got back to work I sent each principal an email saying thank you. I dont know if I got the job or not but that was definitely a good experience if I can take on 7 at one time, 1 will be a breeze next time.
I got to thinking though having seven interviews at one time is actually way better. I have better odds of actually landing a position.
