I Have to Put on My Big Girl Clothes Today

Posted by Seeking Solace |

I have an interview today for a teaching position. It would be another adjunct gig, but at a four year college instead of a two year. So, it's a lateral move with a slight move up in terms of the type of insitution. The position is in the Interdisciplinary Studies department, teaching a course in Critical Thinking and Expression. What is nice is that if I get the job, I will already know someone who teaches there. It will be nice to have a good friend in my corner!!! (You know who you are. Thanks for all your help and guidence!!!!!)

The course is similar to the critical thinking course I taught at my former place of employment. It also has elements of the human relations course that I taught too. So, I gathered samples of assessments and syllabi that I used in those courses to take with me. I think it will help prove my "worthiness" for lack of a better word. I also have my philosophy of teaching statement, evidence and my teaching evaluations. References are on alert for any calls too. I hope I am not forgetting anything.

I am actually really nervous. This is the first time I have done any sort of interview in four or five years. Husband says that I should just be myself and that I am a natural when it comes to interviewing. But, I can help feeling the bats (not butterflies) that are flying around in my stomach.

OK, deep, cleansing breath....

What sucks is that it is going to be warm today. Crap. I would wear a skirt, but that means wearing hosiery, and it is just too freakin' warm for that. So, I guess it's pants. I don't have a skirt long enough to forgo hosiery.

Hmm, better pack the lint brush in my purse. I often carry parts of the Boy with me.

Another cleansing breath....

Wish me luck.

Good Luck.

I often carry parts of all my animals with me. I also have the bad fortune of having all the animal fur colors covered, so there is no safe color.

Personally, if I were interviewing someone, having pet hair on them would count in their favor :).
