    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Newark Public Schools.

    Interview Details

    I took an atypical route to the position; I was interviewed via Teach For America first, then went to the school and did another in-person interview, sample lesson, and written exercise. Only after I was offered the position (via phone) did I fill out the "formal" Newark Public Schools application.

    Interview Questions
    • I cannot recall specific questions, but there were several pointed questions about measuring and tracking data, as well as questions regarding alternative learning styles and classroom management. All pretty standard fare for education.   Answer Question
