My interview with another local middle school was this morning. Overall I feel it went very well. I answered the questions honestly, and even those that would technically be considered "negative" responses, I was able to spin positively. Hey, gotta make myself look good!

I think one of my greatest "selling" points may have been my writing test scores. I don't know how much sense this will make to most of you, but I had a 2.4 out of 4. That's 60%. I wasn't exactly thrilled with that when I was told the other morning, but I figured, "Hey, it was just my first year with this test, so I can definitely beat that next year." During my interview, I was asked about my scores. When I gave my individual score of 2.4, a sort of gasp filled the room. I was, like, "Great. Fantastic. I'm done for. I must really suck." But no! Apparently, the district score (where I interviewed, that is) on the test was a 2.5. Now they did raise their score by .3 points in one year, which is AWESOME! So to be a 2.4 when their entire district was a 2.5 and have them tell me I had apparently done a great job, especially my first year, made me feel amazing!

I won't know anything until Friday, so I'm waiting very anxiously. I don't know the next step if this isn't the place for me. Guess we'll have to wait and see!
