I had an interview at an early middle school in DC (4-8th grade) on Friday and I absolutely loved it. I had to prepare a 55 minute lesson and I was absolutely terrified. I didn't think I could handle it. But I did. It occurred to me, that despite how terrible this year has been at school, I have become a stronger teacher. It didn't phase me to teach in front a group of new kids, or to be observed by 4 different people. Whether or not I get hired is still to be determined. But maybe this once, this whole year has not been a complete wash.
