    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Denver Public Schools (Denver, CO) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Lots of hoops to jump through
    This is a huge district with lots of random boxes to check and trainings to attend.
    I would not recommend it. If at all possible find a different district to work in. Working in DPS was the reason I changed careers. You will be under valued and under paid. Do not do! It is a trap.
