Hi! I haven't been around much lately. I think the last post I made was after I defended my MS thesis (STEM-related).

I'm starting a PhD program (education-related) in the spring, but there likely isn't funding in time for spring semester. Tuition's affordable because I qualified as in-state (YAY!) and I have some savings and zero debt, but obviously I still need to pay for housing and the like (I live with my husband but he makes less than my stipend in my MS program was). So needless to say, I've been applying for jobs like crazy.

Tomorrow I have an interview for a teaching position in the field of my MS (school doesn't require a teaching certificate). There's also a job fair for public schools (and they said candidates without teaching certificates are welcome and they'll tell us about the process of getting one when your degree isn't in education).

So tomorrow is a really big deal for me! Anyone have any advice about interviewing for a teaching position? I have questions prepared and my outfit planned out (same suit I defended in because I'm a grad student, what are fancy clothes?). I'm feeling really nervous though because I really, really want something to come out of this.
