Excellent school! Amazing curriculum. Really great teachers!
Supervisors/Directors are not the best I've worked for.
Advice to Management
People are people. Teachers have families, and private lives. Management needs to recognize the level of dedication that the teachers offer and be more flexible in supporting the teachers so that the turnover is not so high.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
Met with HR first so they could do a basic interview with very generic questions--why do you want the position, what are your good qualities/strengths, etc. After that, took a couple tests to make sure I was qualified/intelligent enough to get the position. I believe there were three parts: generic math and reading test, grammar test (specific, must know terms such as compound complex sentence), and an opinion survey. Next step was to meet and interview with the principal of the desired campus. Interview was much more specific, with questions that require more thought. The last step of the interview process was to do a teaching demo for a class while the principal and teacher observed.
