Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dallas Independent School District in May 2010.

Interview Details

For brevity, I will focus on what happens during the final interview (occurs after the phone interview)

The interview starts early in the morning at a location set up somewhere around your university. After brief introductions, each interviewee is expected to give a 5 minute lesson on a topic of their choosing. Word of advice: if you read off a script or have something memorized, chances are you will not be accepted. Engage your audience.

Then, interviewees will quickly move into another phase of the process which involves a mock-department meeting, where all the interviewees gather and discuss what they could do to promote student learning and their own teaching practices. There will be one candidate asked to be the scribe, and the interviewers will prompt the discussion with questions such as: How can be better address classroom disruptions? How do we get the parents involved? What can the students do to increase mastery?

Next, there will be a short test which focuses on the candidates' situational acumen and data analysis skills (nothing incredibly complex).

After a break, the interviewers will ask each of the candidates to return for a 1:1 interview, where they pose some case-scenario type questions and further assess your motivations for wanting to join Teach for America.
