I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bishop Denis J Oconnell HS in April 2012.
Interview Details – I saw a posting on their website. When I contacted them through email, I attached my resume. I was contacted by their faculty liaison (and head of the counseling department) who expressed interest in speaking with me, and we scheduled a two-part interview. The first part was in a conference room. I was asked about my previous experience teaching physics. They also asked me if I would be willing to teach a Calculus-based physics. I was willing, though I told them that I would need to undergo my own professional development to regain mastery of the material as I had not taught it before. I spoke with the principal, and the department chair, and then we moved to a classroom where I was to give a prepared lesson to an in-session class of students based on what they were currently learning (this required collaboration with the current teacher).
Negotiation Details – They told me they offer 85% of what Fairfax County Public Schools pay. It was more than other Catholic Schools I know. They did not have any flexibility to negotiate, and their benefits package is not good.
