Interview Questions

I have been a substitute teacher since 1993
and have been trying to get a teaching
position. I have done quite a few long-
term positions and consistently get
requested by teachers. I feel confident
that I am doing a good job in the classroom,
but feel I can't sell myself in the
interview process. This past year I have
worked at one school district performing a
long-term position, and also was requested
from other teachers within the same school
district. Recently, I just interviewed for
a fourth grade teaching position at that
same school district. I definitely prepared
for the interview and did not take anything
for granted. The interview group consisted
of two fourth grade teachers; that I knew
and liked me, and the principle of school.
The questions they asked me were
challenging, but I feel I did a good job
answering there questions. I just found out
that I was not even considered for the
second round. What am I doing wrong? How
should I be responding to questions asked?
I love teaching, but maybe I am just can't
sell myself in the interview process. I
really need help with this and concerned
that time is running out for me.
