Dear MinnieMinx and Teacher1974 and others... I got through to the final round!!!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by Lilybett, Jul 14, 2011.


    Ha ha ha sorry, but darn it, I'm jazzed!
    Got shortlisted woo and had an observed lesson today, and the outcome of the lesson dictated whether I'd be asked back tomorrow for the fiiinal interview...
    I was sooo nervous and kept doubting my plans for the lesson, even at 1am this morning I was still up and wondering whether I'd completely missed the point etc etc... and MinnieMinx in particular has just been so fantastic and so together and gave me loads of ace feedback (and Teacher1974, too, but I dunno if he/she posts in this bit). I have to admit that at the end of the lesson I wasn't entiiirely sure how it had gone because some of them seriously hadn't got it so I had to think of something parallel for them to do, and I had run over by a few mins, but the Head said it was "very good" (!!!) and immediately asked me back tomorrow.
    I know I shouldn't jinx it like this but I'm just so so happyyy and trying to stay happyyy and not over-think anything so I can whack the panel around the head tomorrow with what an amazing addition to their staff I would be!!!!
    So. In short. Excited. And THANK YOU so much for all your amazing help in getting this far xxxx

  3. I meant to include your name, too!!!! Thank you so much for the brill help finding the LOs. Welllll, I won't feel too bad - you did get a marriage proposal out of me, after all! [​IMG]
    And oooh, I think it was Cathy-someone advised me that a song I was going to use for Pass the Parcel included the word '***'! And Elizabeth-someone gave me some great advice on pitching to Y3/4...
    Sorry to go on like I'm accepting an Oscar but, God, this forum is great.

    Fabulous news! Am sooooo pleased for you!

    Go to jobseekers and read all Theo's advice about interviews and then WOW them tomorrow!

    Very, very best of luck. I shall be soooooo pleased to read that you got the job, but have a school fair so won't be home until very late.
  6. Well done on getting called back to interview. Dare we ask how it went? [​IMG]
  7. Ooops, just saw your other post. I'm sorry it didn't go well. I felt exactly the same this time last year, and then at the very last minute landed a full time, permanant post so there really is still hope.
    Don't give up! x
