Cari, the great JEA administrative assistant, is expecting a baby girl in January and has decided not to return. Laura, Cindy, and I have interviewed six candidates for the position. We should be making a decision in the next week.
It was a learning experience for me. I have been involved in interviewing teachers for positions on my team, but I have never helped to hire an administrative assistant. I'm so grateful for the experience of Laura and Cindy in this regard. They knew how to narrow the candidate pool, what skills to look for, and the best questions to ask.
