    Interview Details

    Ad appeared in secondary ed and professional job listings. I had an initial interview by phone in late Jan. After a long period of no contact, I had a campus interview in April. Stayed overnight, with 10 hours of appts on two days. Meeting with most in department, deans, and dept hiring committee; visited classes and dorm duty, saw dorm apt and campus. During dean meeting, I was asked about my years of experience; this was reviewed when job offer was made. Offer made in May; we negotiated largely in two phone conversations.
