    Interview

    i had to do a demo lesson 30 min.When you interview for a teaching job, you may be expected to interview with a variety of different constituents. You could interview with a panel, which could include the school principal, administrative staff, other teachers, and parents. Or, the interview could be with a search committee charged with screening applicants prior to a formal interview for the job.

    You might also be asked to teach a mini lesson to a group of students, or teachers pretending to be students, during your interview. Be sure that you know exactly what you need to prepare for each interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Achievement First (Brooklyn, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    After an informal informational interview with an acquaintance who teaches at Achievement First, she referred me to AF and within a day or two they contacted me to ask for my resume and schedule a phone screening. At the end of the half-hour screening, I was asked to complete a job application and provide three references within the next few days. AF contacted me to schedule a half-hour follow-up phone interview very soon thereafter, at which my AF recruiter discussed with me various jobs for which I might be considered, making sure I had the opportunity to specify which I wished to be considered for. Within a day or so, my recruiter reached out to schedule a finalist day interview, at which I would be visiting the school to do a 20-minute teaching presentation for a group of AF students and to interview formally with the principal. I had the opportunity to tour the school and sit in on classes during that visit as well. Within a week of my finalist day, I had received an offer!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Achievement First (Brooklyn, NY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    When i arrived I got a tour of the school and a glimpse of some classroom teaching. Then I had about 20 min. To review my lesson for my demo. During my demo, the recruiter, principal, and one of the coaches were present in the back just cuing the time left i had for the lesson. After the demo, the questions part of the demo took about 1.5 hours but it felt very welcoming.
