    Basically one school posted an opening that is not my first school pick, but they have already called for an interview which is fine. Later the following week another school I much prefer posted an opening. So I've applied to both but would like to be at one more than the other. Trying to figure out next steps without stepping on any toes.. no interview calls yet for the other position but I anticipate one hopefully. Any suggestions??

    Take the interviews as they are offered. In most districts, the first interview is about seeing if you fit their need. In NJ, it is very common to have multiple steps in hiring process, including more interviews, demo lessons, etc. Pass on the first interview at your own peril. Sometimes what you think is "ideal" is all smoke and mirrors.
