    High School English Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockton, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aspire Public Schools (Stockton, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was me giving a sample 45 minute lesson to a class of students with several administrators in the room observing. We then proceeded to a different room for an interview which lasted maybe 30 minutes. The principal initially told me I could give a lesson on "whatever I want," then he changed it to "as long as it fits the 9th grade standards." I wish he had said that from the beginning.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Name 3 strengths and 1 weakness. How would you create a rigorous learning environment?   Answer Question
