    Need Practice for Interviews

    If you have an interview coming up and want help on knowing what to say, then come to
    the media center for a mock interview with Ms. Chatman.  She has done this in the past
    with many students and they have reported that it made them feel less nervous and
    better prepared for the questions that were asked during the actual interview.  You can
    come in the morning, during your lunch period, or after school as long as Ms. Chatman
    knows in advance)
