    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Douglas County School District (CO) (Highlands Ranch, CO).

    Interview

    DCSD allows only 30 minutes for an interview. This is not nearly enough time to evaluate either the candidate or the employer. Often, six or more employees ask pre-chosen questions. Seldom does the candidate get the time to delve further into the question.

    Interview Questions

    • "I will give you a scenario. You tell us how you would handle it." The interviewers want you to answer a question about a student/students in a vacuum! Just ridiculous.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    In education, there is no negotiation. Take it or leave it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Douglas County School District (CO) (Highlands Ranch, CO) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 2 administrators and the Dept. Chair. I was asked a number of questions that were fairly easy to answer, especially because I had previous teaching experience. There were about 15 questions asked as they went around the table. We were in the main office conference room with projector. I was able to project my art portfolio as I was talking about my personal experience as an artist and as a teacher. To prepare for the interview, I spent time talking with other teachers, talking about teaching philosophy and strategies. I compiled my work in a digital portfolio so that I knew I had a visual display for the actual interview to support my answers. Overall, I felt that the interview was smooth and to the point.
