    Classroom Teacher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Baltimore, MD) in August 2009.

    Interview

    The job was in a low income area and I was informed during the interview that no training from a "white" university will help me regardless of being trained as a school teacher. I took the job anyway because the pay was nice, and the assistant principal seemed to communicate better than the principal.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you ok leaving everyday knowing what kind of conditions these children go home too, or knowing that this isn't some movie where you are going to save kids?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't try to negotiate, but I think I could have if I had more experience in the area of salary negotiation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools.

    Interview

    I skipped the curriculum interview and went right to the individual school (I had a contact who got me through the door) so I can't speak to what goes on at the top. But at the school level it's mostly standard education questions. What's your educational philosophy? How do you handle diversity in the classroom? Describe a lesson that went wrong? How do you use formative and summative assessment?

    Essentially, if you've paid any attention at all in your pedagogy courses you'll be fine; it's the standard questions you'd expect.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were fairly straightforward. I do not recall anything being particularly tricky.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation; salary scale.

    Answered and filled out questions on test sheet. This took about a half hour. Once I was called into the interview, there were six people on the board.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Owings, MD) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the Department Chair and Principal. Job offer came a few weeks later directly from HR. Asked a lot of questions about classroom style, qualifications, interests, and experiences. Both seemed very knowledgeable and approachable. I had to choose between several different schools. The process was very time consuming because I had to meet with several schools before I knew if I was getting an offer at a school I already interviewed with.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Towson, MD).

    Interview

    Not too hard, make sure your personality shines through. Talk about past lessons and experiences. The interview process was very, very long. first you have to be selected to be interviewed by the county after you submit your application which can take weeks, then after your screening interview if you did a good job you have to wait to be interviewed by elementary school principals. After that you may or may not be offered a job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Baltimore County Public Schools (Baltimore, MD) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied with BCPS months before they finally reviewed my application. They actually didn't interview me until August; literally a week before school began. You have to do an entrance interview first, which I completed in December at a job expo. Once you pass that, HR will add you to the candidate pool where principals/schools can contact you for employment. You then meet with the school/principal and from there you will get hired by HR.
