I had an interview for a middle school math position three weeks ago. Last week, I called and asked if interviews were still going on or not. The response?
“No offers have been made.”
What does that mean? I spent the week trying to figure that out. What did I do wrong? Wait. Are they still interviewing? What happened that they can’t decide? Is it me? Is it someone else? Is there a tie?
So many thoughts go through you mind as principals and staff decide on who they would like to hire after a round of interviews. I for one have never been on the deciding side.
So today I presented at iConnect iLearn in Colby, KS. The presentation was over the Competition Spirit of the Classroom. It went great! I also attended other sessions throughout the day. I had a blast and learned so much educational wise as well as meeting people that I knew online, but not in person.
The conference day ended and I helped set up things for tomorrow. I then had a great friend that lives in this area that I was to meet up with. She picked me up and we were off to WalMart. Yes, of all places, I end up there. . . . Then my phone rings. I look at it.
It’s the school that I want to teach at and had an interview for. They want to offer me a job, but there’s a catch. They really want me for Science rather than Mathematics. . . . .
All evening I tossed my thoughts and ideas around. I’m not ready for Science. It’s my weakest subject. Could I do it though? Will it be tough? Am I up for the challenge?
I am to call with my final answer tomorrow afternoon. . . . .
