    I have been working at Denver Public Schools full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff is extremely friendly, parental involvement is very high, students are awesome

    Cons

    Pay could be a bit better (but it's education after all), more opportunities to work remotely on Friday for salaried staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for salaried staff to either work remotely on Friday or work for extra time during the week in order to be able to leave early on a Friday with the rest of the students. I think this would go quite a ways to boosting morale and helping staff to become more efficient and productive during the rest of the week

    Elementary School Teacher ELA-E Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Denver Public Schools in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Called by principal within 2 days of applying for a phone screening. Immediately asked to come in for an interview the next day. After the initial interview, I was asked to guest teach a lesson in a classroom.

    Interview Questions
    • I was given a lesson to teach and it was the wrong lesson. The students had no idea what I was teaching as they had not learned the content since the year before (roughly 9 months). The questions weren't hard but were what was expected in a teacher interview. How to run guided reading, behavior management strategies, acclimating to the school, etc.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Seemed to be a disconnect with the administration and teaching teams. Teaching teams didn't feel collaborative and culture wasn't welcoming or strong. Bare walls in the classrooms and little in the hallways.
