While at school, we were taught that part of what made educators professionals was that they reflected on things. So I am going to reflect on my interview very slightly (since there isn’t a lot to tell) and then I am going to reflect a little bit on my journey…which I have done a little bit already.
So I think that my interview went really well today. I was really nervous at first, but I would have thought that something was wrong if I weren’t nervous because if I get this position, it would be a big deal. The position is an early kindergarten position for a teacher on maternity leave. It would be at least 8 weeks long and possibly longer. I would be starting right away and I really am hoping that I get it because I am really excited about it and I think it would be really good for me. My favorite part of the interview was when I answered a question truthfully and the principal said to me: That was a really great answer if you really believe what you said. And I did. So hopefully it works out well. And I was told that I would probably hear by the end of next week – so a fairly quick turn around.
So if you read my blog, you will know that I was seriously thinking that I needed to switch careers. And I was really nervous about that because I was afraid that I was going to regret not teaching down the road. So I am really excited that this has come interview has come at the time that it has come because it is giving me some faith about things. I will keep my options open, but this will give me something to start off next year and will hopefully give me some money to save up so that I can pay off some more of my loans and do some things that I would like to do.
Have you ever found that something falls into your lap just when you need it?
