    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD.

    Interview Details

    The district conducts the first interview, which is over basic teaching 101 (think of the pedagogy tests). However, a school principal can call you up and circumvent this interview (which is what happened to me). In my interview, they told me that the students they work with can be tough (it was the lower end of the district). They didn't exactly grill me and it was more of them trying to sell me the position.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing to become a teacher involves student teaching. If you are a first year teacher, you must become certified and that process is long and difficult. If you teach subjects other than math or science, you better be absolutely perfect.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD in May 2007.

    Interview Details

    Completed a screening interview with district HR personnel. They use this to rate you in the searchable candidate database that principals have access to. Despite having previous teaching experience, the interviewer did not seem impressed by my credentials and did not view alternate certification favorably. I was not called by any principals after completing this interview. I did, however, receive a job offer from two other school districts after visiting schools and leaving resumes.
