all show, no go.

30 April 2009

i have an interview tomorrow.

for a teaching job.

and i haven’t finished, you know, learning how to teach yet.  i graduate next may.

it’s an interesting opportunity, and given more time perhaps i will share all the details.  you know, when i know more, etc.

but needless to say, it’s exciting, it’s compelling, it’s TERRIFYING.

i always want to be impressive in interviews, but i almost don’t want to be too over the top impressive.  sometimes i reach the point where i feel like i’m getting all show and no go.  i need to channel my inner brit, and tone it down a little 🙂

i have extra copies of my updated resume, my (first ever) lesson plan, my clip from the office that i am showing to intro my 15-minute mini-lesson, my trusty notes, and i dug out my old businessy togs from the Closet of My Former Life.  oh, and i have a dearth of enthusiasm.

i’m ready.  let’s hope.

my mother tells me to stop gesticulating so much.  good advice.


p.s. could this possibly be a worse week for an interview for a job for which i have not quite yet finished my education?  finals, two research papers, of which one’s rough draft is entirely overdue (please have mercy on me, professors), a novel and a comic book to finish, education analysis due…OY.  oh well.  lemonade.  or at least, some lemon desserts.

    Of course they will love you, as we all do. 🙂 I have a friend who did her student teaching and they loved her so much she just stayed after she graduated. Built in job!
