I'm panic-stricken! Last week I was invited to an interview, which is tomorrow. First ever school interview (primary). The head only provided very minimal info which I couldn't use to prepare anything, until late last night. So I have 1 day to do everything now. And it is A LOT! I won't go into detail as I don't want there to be a chance of someone identifying the school. Never know who is reading! But I've got 3 - yes 3 - interview lessons to teach, each one in a different year group. That alone would be manageable. What is stressing me out so much is that 2 of these lessons are in immediate succession and another is immediately after a different part of the interview process, with literally 0 minutes in between each session to pack away, get to another classroom and set up the next lesson. Seriously, 0 minutes. Apparently the schedule is very tight due to the number of candidates and we must stick to it. How is that possibly going to work?! I was already worried about differentiation for classes I don't know and now that worry is much worse as I'm going to have absolutely no time to even quickly ask the class teacher or TA or whoever which children need support and which need higher level work. I can hardly ask the children! So I can't really do it and this will reflect very badly on my teaching. The lessons are only a part of the expectation for the day as well. My mentor from last year and other teachers she works with were shocked. It's a temporary class teacher position and one teacher commented that it looks like I'm going for a headship! I don't expect answers but it might make me feel better if someone has heard of this happening before or simply agrees that it's crazy and I'm not just being stupid!
