I have been gone for a month! I look back and it has been a whirlwind of a month. I was the "lucky" person who volunteered to lead the interview team for our new principal next year. This whole process was LONG and draining. We had to do 21 initial first round (40 minutes each) interviews, then nine second round interviews. I was out of my classroom for four full days! It was way too crazy!
Being on the interview team was a great experience, I know what I should and should not say in case if I was ever going to interview for a pricipal position.

And yes folks, that is exactly and all that was said!
So now I am on pins and needles waiting to find out which of the finalists are going to be our principal. The super makes the final decision. So we shall wait and see...
