Interview Details –
HR Admin called and asked ?'s about my work experience & certifications, the usual. at the conclusion of our call she asked if i could interview next week and that they wld call back to discuss the date. They called me the following Wednesday to interview on Friday. There were 2 manager types there. They asked me what I knew about the school district and why I would want to work there. Then there were situational questions: how would I prioritize 3 help desk calls: a principal whose email is down, an entire school's network is down, or (i think) someone's printer not printing. There were questions about IP address classifications, identifying the loopback address, and another diagnostic address that I can't remember.
It was a very professional and friendly interview.

Interview Details – I did a sample teach and it went all wrong. I should have prepared more. I went last in my group so it was intimidating and the interviewer asked me a weird question right before I started which threw me off and I did not recover. Next time I will approach it all differently. They didn't seem concerned when people ran over, that wasn't a big penalty I don't think.
