Job Interview

Well, I have my first interview scheduled. But it's for a job that I'm not certain that I'm truly interested in. I know that I'm not at a point where I can pick and choose, but I do have to consider a lot of things. The position is teaching at a school that is a 35 minute drive away. O.k. that's not really a big deal, I think I can handle that assuming my car lasts. But it's teaching speech and being a speech coach. That means teaching debate and oral interp and taking students to tournaments, working after school, hosting a tournament in order to fundraise. I'm just not certain I'm up for all of that. I'm learning to enjoy my free time and I don't think I want that kind of headache. And debate is not my strong suit. I've gotten the basics from college and I've taught CX debate in a simplified format, but I'm not sure I can pull it off. The team that exists right now is a very strong team that wins a lot of awards.
I know I should have more confidence in myself, but I'm thinking that it's more that I'm aware of my limitations. But I might not even be offered the position anyways. I guess I should go ahead with the interview and see where it goes. But I'm not sure what I'm supposed to say in it. I originally applied for the job thinking that it was only going to be teaching the regular speech classes and being more of an assistant coach. But I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
I really want to find out more about the technology coordinator position open in Amarillo. It says to wait two weeks to call for an interview, but I think I'll call next week. I think they want the time to run a background check, but they may already have one on file from when I applied as a substitute last year.

Wow. The speech thing would totally be my dream job. *sigh* Even though it's not something you think you'd like...I'm so jealous!
