Interview

I got another voicemail this morning, which I returned during lunch. They have a music assistant opening at the middle school that's attached to the high school where I student taught, and I have an interview scheduled for next Wednesday morning with the principal and maybe some other people. I already know the director of the middle school, and I clearly know all the high school music people, I won't be surprised to see any of them there. It's a part time, 4 hours a day job, which would allow me to hopefully keep working here at the tech center too, which I want. I'm just kind of awestruck right now. This would be such a great opportunity. I know it's just an interview right now, but I'm a little excited about it. And nervous, very nervous. Maybe this is the push I need to get back on the credentialing wagon. (though I don't need a credential for this position) I really need this experience. I have recommendations for this exact position in the district from my master teacher and his assistant. My master teacher is kind of a rock star in that district and pulls a LOT of weight, and I am really close to his assistant, who helped keep me going during student teaching. I'm going to call him and tell him about the interview. Keep your fingers crossed and please send some good thoughts and prayers. I'll keep you updated. I'm so nervous!

good luck, I quickly learned in education that it's more about who you know then how great your resume is.

Sounds like a great place to start!

Kellan-Thank you so much!

EatPlayLove-It's true, and I know kind of the "top dog" in music in that district...he was my master teacher. And even though I didn't pass that time, none of them doubt my ability, it was a matter of experience. And he thinks I could do a job like this. :)

Eileen-Thank you so much, I will definitely keep you posted!
