New York City Teaching Fellows Interview

Months ago I applied to the NY City Teaching Fellowship and I was happy to say weeks ago I got an interview, which I went on yesterday. From 5 to 9 I went through I went through a personal interview, group discussion, a writing sample and a teaching lesson to my interviewers and a number of other candidates. It was intense, but my candidate group really worked together to help each other out and inspire each other through the tasks we were given. I know I'm meant to be a teacher because for the first time I went to through an interview motivated, excited and passionate. I didn't worry about what they thought about me. I just did my best to show them how much I cared about my future students, whether I'm teaching with this program or not. And I know I did better because the time frame is when I'm at my best. I did some searches and I saw what other candidates who eventually did get invited to be a fellow said about the interview and I know that was helpful. It'll be weeks before I know the outcome. At least I got to this level. Years ago, very soon after finishing my undergrad, I applied and didn't get this far. So, it was a success anyway I look at it. And my nerves are not fried right now so that's even better.

    Hi! I too had applied to NYTF and interviewed a year ago but wasn't accepted. I re-applied and have another interview next week. What I am stressing about (as I did last time!) is the 5 minute class lesson. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. I have been scouring the internet looking for resources. I'd like to teach Special Ed on a grade school level.
    Thanks! Stacey (my email is:
