    Interview

    Great interviewing process! All schools were welcoming and informative. Admin gave a brief tour of the school each time. Questions were very common and appropriate. After the interview, I was recommended for hire almost immediately. No complaints.

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD.

    Interview

    My resume was provided to a campus principal, which started the ball rolling. I had to apply formally through the district prior to the interview. I do not recall having an interview at the district level.

    Negotiation

    Unable to negotiate. Teacher salaries are determined by the district's pay schedule.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cypress-Fairbanks ISD (Katy, TX).

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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.
