I HAVE A JOB INTERVIEW TOMORROW!!!
I know you are all thinking “That’s great! You were looking for a job??” Well, I wasn’t. About a week ago, a friend told me they suddenly need a new music teacher at her daughter’s school. It’s a private school with preschool and toddler classes all the way up to grade 5. She sent me a link to the school’s website. From there, I discovered that I went to church in Tempe with one of the teachers. Awesome!! It took me several days, and I finally decided to at least take a closer, more serious look. So on Friday I emailed the director.
The director/founder called me a few hours ago and gave me more information about the school and the job position. It’s part time — 10 hours a week (9 hours of instruction, 1 hour prep). They prefer that I do 2 full days a week. That would be very doable in my book. It’s definitely preferable that a couple hours a day everyday… especially with the cost of gas. 🙂 Most of the kids are kindergarten or younger, so it’s a lot of teaching enjoyment of music through movement and other creative pursuits. I think it would be a lot of fun, and I can use a lot of the materials I have left from my music ed classes (especially the elementary/general music class). Tomorrow I wll interview with her at the school.
I still don’t know if I want to do this , mostly for two main reasons: A) My specialty is actually secondary music — I teach band to junior high and high schoolers. 2) I’m not sure if it is worth it to pay for day care for my two boys who are at home. I have NO idea what to pay someone to watch my boys (and I would much prefer to have a friend watch them than to send them to say, Kindercare).
Anyway, wish me luck. Especially as I hunt for some clothes to wear TO the interview. Oh man, I need to lose weight!!!!!!
