Special Education Teacher Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Grand Prairie Independent Schools District in September 2009.
Interview Details – I was initially hired as a diagnostician. My interview was only with the Assessment Coordinator. It was lengthy, but I got the impression that she liked me right away. I was called later that same day and offered the job.
Since that time 7 years ago, I have sat in on several committee interviews for new hires for teachers and for new diagnosticians. It seems very stressful for the candidate (I know that I would be stressed in similar conditions). Sometimes the committee part of a teacher interview seems like it is a popularity contest -- "so do we like her enough for our team?"
Interview Question – How would you diagnose a child with an IQ of 71 and poor academics in comparison? View Answer
