Interview Advice Please!

A while back I posted a huge, ranty, mess of a post talking about how much I hated teaching a for-profit in town. Well, I'm still there, and I still hate it, but there's good news—I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! First, I only have to "teach" there 5 more weeks! The last two weeks are the final, and some meeting thing I'm supposed to go to. Second, I wasn't sure what I would be doing if I left there or if I could pay my bills, but last night, after some serious consideration, I applied to for a few part-time administrative jobs in my area, and I already got a call back for an interview for one!! I don't want to get too excited about it (I kind of already am), but I would sincerely like one of these positions, so I could quit the awful for-profit.


So, Jezzies, what kinds of things should I say in my interview? I'm a little concerned about the question "Why are you leaving your current job?". (I have three right now, and if I was hired for an administrative position, I would quit two and cut back on the other one.) Should I be honest and say that my financial and psychological needs are not being met? Or should I say something about wanting to work in a professional environment?
