    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hillsborough County Public Schools in August 2008.

    Interview

    A lot of your working conditions as a teacher depend on the principal, so while you can't negotiate salary - the union does that - you can accept or decline the general working environment. Make sure you click with your principal. She sets the school culture.

    Negotiation

    Florida is a right to work state and you won't be allowed to negotiate much, unless perhaps you're a teacher in a critical shortage area, such as special education or ESOL.
