Interview #1 was bright and early yesterday. After a shaky start, which wasn’t too bad because the questions were straight-forward, I started to be more verbal. 20 minutes is such a short time! It’ll be harder to fit everything in tomorrow when my interviewers know less about me.
Now I sit and wait. The principal does a second interview, but she’s actually on vacation so that may slow the process.
Should I have revealed to the world via social media that I have these interviews? I’ll be embarrassed if I get neither. At the same time, I couldn’t hold it in and I got a lot of support from friends and co-workers. They sent me interview questions, texts, and my mom even bought me a new dress for the interviews.
I’m not actually worried about being embarrassed as I am about not getting either position. I have a knack/niche for teaching and the school who gets me would be lucky. It’s common knowledge.
After some thought, I considered that yesterday could have been a courtesy interview, but the one today is not and that they are actually more interested. I can literally walk to my interview and it would take me less than 5 minutes.
If all was equal, I would stay with my current school – I love the students and I love the staff… and my students would totally be devastated. I’ve been in this situation before though and I adjusted completely fine. No matter where I end up, I will love it and I will excel.
Onto less serious things…
Easy-to-digest foods are doing wonders on my tummy: smoothies/shakes, a sandwich with protein, Quest bars, and protein pancakes. I’ve pretty much cut out meat except chicken because it’s so hard to digest.
So yeah, can I be Paleo without the beef? Those heavy meals really did a number on me.
I occupied myself with work, school work, “MasterChef,” and a workout this morning.
