“Too good to be true?"

So a STEMish position opened a decent bit from where I live and admin reached out to me. This school is a very desirable suburban school in a desirable socioeconomic area with a low poverty rate, involved PTA, and high test scores and I'm not quite sure why they contacted me. I haven't taught formally in a while (especially not STEM, I'm like 70% humanities) and don't seem like the “ideal” candidate. It seems like the school shouldn't have any issues filling positions with real science teachers, even if it is an “in-demand area” halfway through the year and there is a minor teacher shortage in my state.

I'm wondering if there is something fishy about the position, admin, or school environment. I did my research but nothing came up.

Or maybe I'm paranoid and the school admin just really like and want me.

I should note I have interviewed at premiere schools in the past, but in the typical Feb-May timeframe.

What do y'all think? Is there something afoot or am I just silly?
