    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed 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.

    Science Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Orange County Schools in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a district representative first. I signed a contract the following week that says I would seek employment in OCPS. I got in contact with a teacher who was at a local High School who was teaching the same subject I wanted to teach. He forwarded my resume to his principal and I got an interview with the principal who offered me a position after another return interview. I then had to go through Pre Orientation. Where I received a drug test, and a bunch of paperwork to fill out. I passed the bureaucracy challenge and was able to then go through a two day orientation training. That was followed by a years worth of trainings after school for new teachers as well as extra work assignments that only new teachers had to complete while they were also working over 40 hours a week for their students at a surprisingly low salary.

    The way to get your foot in the door is via employee referral. OCPS also heavily recruits on college campuses. Otherwise, send your resume directly to the school of your interest.

To foster a sense of unity, the district requires every teacher to participate in a professional learning community.
