The process took 1 day – interviewed at Los Angeles USD.
I had one interview for an elementary school teaching position. I was asked several questions, from the standard "Why do you want to work here?" to "Delve into your experience working with children." I am bilingual (Spanish), and the area where the school was located had a majority of Latino students, so that came in handy when explaining my ability to communicate with Spanish-speaking parents if necessary.
- Why did you apply to teach at this school and not X school in another district? Answer Question
I was straight out of undergrad so there was no negotiation. My salary was set.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Los Angeles USD (Watts, CA) in June 2014.
Lots of paperwork to fill out and deliver to different floors of headquarters. Many stamps required/boxes to check off. You have to give a sample teach and then answer behavioral questions. This clears you to work for the district but you still need to interview with individual principals. Overall, the difficult part of the interview was getting all of the paperwork filled out correctly and signed by the right person - it seems dated and intentionally tedious.

Met with the Principal she was very charming and professional. Questions asked: How do you differentiate instruction? What experience do you have working with students with special needs? What grade level are you most comfortable teaching?
