I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Orange County Schools.

Interview Details – Applicants start by filling out Orange County Public School's extensive and arduous online application. Be sure to set aside a couple of hours and have all prior experience ready, including dates, etc. After you select your desired position, you submit your application. If the district approves your application it is made available to the principal of the school who has the open position. If the principal feels you are qualified, the school secretary will contact you for an interview. During the interview you'll be asked about classroom management, how you would handle certain situations, how you deal with difficult parents, your thoughts about curriculum and teaching methodologies, along with other questions about teaching. If you seem like someone they want, you may meet with the department head. You may be offered the job on the spot, or you may get the job later, depending on the principal.

Interview Question – Questions regarding how you handle certain situations or deal with difficult parents can be challenging. Be ready.   Answer Question
