Math Teacher, Middle School Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
Interviewed at Prince Georges County Public School
Interview Details – I wanted to cry after I have an answer to how I handle a hard situation and the principal told me I handled the situation poorly. I felt like the principal was playing devils advocate with all of my answers. It was like he had a certain answer in mind and wasn't satisfied until i gave that answer. At the end of the interview they said they wanted to hire me...still not sure what I did right. Not sure if I'm going to take it or not.

Very Easy Interview
Instructional Lead Teacher Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Prince Georges County Public School in August 2013.

Interview Question – I was asked simple questions about my background. There were no questions that really made me differentiate myself from any other applicant. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation phase in this career. All salaries are based on time in service education, and are specific to the position.
