    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at DeKalb County School System (Decatur, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a review of my resume and cover letter followed by discussion.Prior to the interview I reviewed the school's webpage and identified the main focus of the school and the programs that I felt could be supported and enhanced by the Library Media Center program.
    Each school is different. So do your research. Talk to the Educational Media department about the focus of the school and go in with ideas. Most administrators are not aware of all that you can offer as a Teacher Librarian. So, even if they don't completely agree with your vision the fact that you have one will set you apart from all the rest.

    Interview

    Interviewing was the easiest part but I am now on my 6th principal and I have only been working in the county for 9 years at 2 schools. The interview was like a sit down with a friend more than an interview. Know about differentiation. Know how something about CCGPS and know that the curriculum is ever changing. Be sure on an interview with Dekalb County that you mention that you are flexible.
