    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gerstell Academy.

    Interview

    I submitted and cover letter and resume, and was contacted soon after. On my first interview, I met with the principal of the school (typical interview questions and a tour). I was then asked to prepare a sample lesson for a class, and to deliver it about a week after. I created ~ a 45 minute lesson with a formal plan, PowerPoint, and handouts. After working with the students, I met with the lead teacher (whose students I just taught) and interviewed with her. I did not get a job offer. This, alone, I am not taking issue with. I completely understand that they may have found someone else who they thought was a better fit, and I certainly don't count on getting a job everywhere I interview. However, no one ever communicated with me to tell me they went with someone else. This is becoming the norm of many employers, but I find it extremely disrespectful and indifferent when I went on two interviews and spent much time/effort on the lesson part. Send people a form letter (at least) letting them know you hired someone else. Don't keep people hanging. I've received more consideration from phone interviews. The school is beautiful and the students are extremely polite and welcoming. However, this experience left a bad taste in my mouth. Consider showing courtesy from the start to the END of the interview process.
