I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Dallas Independent School District.

Interview Details – They take along time from reviewing application to a call for an interview and then the interview scheduled date. The Interview was so basic they could have just done this over the phone.

Interview Question – The questions were easy. What is a legal hold? Why should you get the job? Tell us a strength and tell us a weakness. Instead of a one on one interview they surprised me with a panel interview. The interview was short and could have been done over the phone.   View Answer

Reading Teacher Interview

Interview Details – The principal and vice principal asked me about my experiences. They mainly wanted to know about my discipline skills in the classroom and what grades I had taught. The principal was concerned that I was only certified in EC-4 even though I was willing to take the test for 4-8. They were not interested until I told them I had interviewed at another school and offered a position. Then, I was offered a position on the spot.

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Dallas Independent School District in February 2010.

Interview Details – Recruiter first asked about my other work experiences and why I want to work for their district.
Then a series of questions which were related to pedagogical methods: how to make science interested for students or how to find a balance between students interest and district curriculum.
And the last part of interview was writing sample ( write a letter to the parents; discussing a certain problem in the class).

Interview Question – The recruiter asked me to imagine a situation that I am going back to home after work and suddenly remember that I have done something to one of my students that makes me regret and tell her what I might have done?   Answer Question
