Difficult Interview

Music Teacher Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at National Heritage Academies in October 2008.

Interview Details – The offered a trial period with sub pay. Based on a few days they offered yet another trial period. They expected someone in this position to manage the classroom better than the already hired teachers, even on the first day with the students. This (theoretically) meant complete and utter control over almost the whole student body. The claim was that the hired teachers had supreme control, as well as stellar entertainment value in the classroom to keep the students interested. This I did not see for most teachers. Most were no different than anywhere else I taught. I did see humiliation of students with in your face yelling.

Interview Question – There were no unusual questions.   View Answer

Elementary Teacher Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at National Heritage Academies in September 2009.

Interview Details – Interviewer was kind and courteous. Asked many questions about philosophy of education, experience, background, hypotheticals. Interview went well, was told if I did not hear by the end of the week to call him. I did not so I called and left many messages. Messages were never returned. The interview itself and the interviewer were very professionally conducted, but I wish he had followed up with me with either an e-mail or a phone call.

Interview Question – There was a question regarding how I would be able to step into a job after the school year had already begun.   Answer Question
