I went on Thursday to Washington High School.Â They don’t have a math position open, but do have Intro to Computers (this is a mouse, this is the internet, this is MS Word…) The interview went ok, he has other candidates, and will likely let me know Mon or Tue. Â After asking a million different people in ACP, and getting a million different answers, I think they can manage to shift what certification track I’m on, if I get offered the job.
The assistant principal was a good interviewer.Â Interviews are so odd to me.Â You have to be cocky to prove you’re better than other candidates, but that’s entire a person who I’m not, so how do they know who I am and who they’ll be hiring?Â It’s a tricky line to walk.
One of my answers actually elicited a verbal “I like that response, by the way.” and he seemed somewhat surprised by it. Â It bordered on cocky, but it was what I was feeling at the time.
Q: Why do you think you are a better candidate than the others seeking this job? (Or maybe it was why should we hire you over other candidates, either way…)
I said only
Bill: I think I’m someone the kids will want to learn from.
We’ll see next week.
