    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aspire Public Schools in July 2015.

    Unfortunately I got really nervous and screwed up. I didn't get the job, but as long as you calm down and answer the 10 questions you'll be fine.

    The middle school/high school interview is different. The questions may vary and you might be expected to do a job different from the job description. Just beware.
