Report answer

The interview process begins with the Board of Education. I interviewed during a time when teachers were in high demand. The interviewer asked basic questions about my skills and philosophy of education, reviewed my Praxis scores, and handed me the contract to sign. The next step involved interviewing with the principal of a school. This part of the interviewing process varies depending on the person conducting the interview. I interviewed with 3 different principals. My first interview was a pleasant experience. The principal was focused on hiring the best candidate for the position. The second principal was unpleasant, unpolite, and mean. She was trying to prove that I was not qualified for the job. The third principal was interested in my skills and experience. She was excited to have me join her team. I learned that the way the principal presents him/herself during the interviewing process is how he/she interacts with staff on a daily basis. Unfortunately, schools change leadership without notice. Fortunately, teachers can transfer schools if not satisfied with school leadership. However, most schools make you wait until the end of a school year to transfer so you have to endure until the end.
