Special Education Assistant Interview

Special Education Assistant

Interviewed at Los Angeles USD

Interview Details – There wasn't an official interview when I got hired but I've heard that employees usually sit before a panel consisting of a parent, principal, teacher, and union representative. General questions are asked. They will give you a scenario question and ask what you would do. General reading and math test is administered at a different time, along with fingerprinting.

Interview Question – Scenario questions can be difficult. You never know what they are going to ask so you need to be prepared for any question. Always have the students' safety and privacy in mind.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Twelve years ago I submitted a cover letter and resume and copies of my transcripts to the main office downtown in Los Angeles.
