Saturday is leap day! Enjoy your extra day by doing whatever you want!
I had an interview on Friday. I didn’t think it went well, but it must have been okay because they asked me back for a second interview! I have to prepare a 20 min mock PD session. I think this is actually easier than teaching a lesson (which is always awkward and disingenuous) and I have done a few PD sessions for staff before. Wish me luck!
I have my final interview with another school tomorrow. It’s an all day interview. ALL DAY. 7:45-3:45. Throughout the day I will meet with each grade level team (6th, 7th, and 8th), multiple administrators, observe a class, have lunch with students, and meet with more people. Its a little (okay, a LOT) overwhelming but I’m hoping as the day goes on I get more comfortable.
Last week was better at work. Things have settled a bit with my replacement. There were no harsh comments this week and I appreciate that. The other person that has been offered a position is trying to schedule a time to come observe. We have reached the time of year that things start to get busy-we will have state testing coming up, lots of IEPs and ETRs, and just the general rush of nearing the end of the school year. Also, our Spring Break isn’t until the middle of April. So far away…
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
