My last post was about being stressed out but not really about my interview on Wednesday. Tuesday was weird because I was totally not stressed at all. I just went about getting my portfolio done. I think it turned out pretty good. There's some things that need to be added but going into to the interview I felt like I had a solid representation of who I am as a prospective teacher. Anyway, that night was horrible. I was tossing and turning all night. I dreamt I was at an interview at GVSD and after some preliminary talking they sat me in front of a computer and said I had to answer all my questions by typing the answers into the computer. I was so ticked off. Anyway, the next morning I was a little nervous about getting to the school on time because I wasn't sure what the highways would be like. But I made it to school with time enough to buy a tea and help relax. I was pretty relaxed but a little tea never hurt. Oh, and I looked pretty darn good too. While I was looking through my portfolio before the interview I came to an important realization. My editing skills at 8:45am are way stronger than at 10:30pm. I have some changes I need to make. Oh well. Anyway, interview went great. The only problem now is I want to stay in job search mode. I'm finding going back to homework mode a bit of a struggle. ugh

I thought I was pretty laid back about my first interview this week. I'm going into Winnipeg tomorrow to meet with a school division from my area. It's a general interview which means they just interview a bunch of people but have no specific jobs in line for the people they are interviewing. But I've had a lot of trouble sleeping over the last two nights which leads me to believe I may be a little more stressed than I originally thought. Sometimes I try to make it look like I don't care but usually that is just a coping mechanism on my part. Inside I'm generally freaking out. So I'm going go and finish my portfolio and hopefully get something half decent together and then make sure I know what I said in the portfolio so I don't contradict myself. Good times.

I had a lot of fun doing a project for Alternative Education. One of the things we did was an audio historical art tour of the University of Winnipeg. We prepared podcasts that people downloaded and then listened too at the different sites. Lots of fun.
Here is the link to the website I set up for the project.
