    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Katy ISD (Katy, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was in front of a panel, including the principal, assistant principal, and 5 grade level teachers. The interview was in round robin style, whereby each teacher asked a question from a list of 16 questions provided by the Katy ISD human resources department. Questions included tell us about your teaching experience, what can you contribute to our team, what does guided reading look like in your classroom, what does a math lesson look like in your class, how to do communicate with parents, how do you handle bad behavior issues in your class, what is your classroom management style, how will you contribute to the community of this school, what are some of your strengths, and how do you stay on top of current teaching trends. There is an opportunity at the end for you to ask questions. Be sure to interview the school back by asking detailed questions about their philosophy and overall school climate. I highly value collaboration, creativity and don't like uniform lesson plans and everyone having to follow scripted lessons. It was during this time that I realized that this school not be good fit for my teaching style and personality.

    Interview

    One on one interview with the hiring principal at an offsite location since they scheduled my interview during a closed campus testing date. Sat down face to face and she read through a list of questions that were prepared in advance. Very basic questions asking about office background. Didnt really touch in any specifics in relation to how she planned to run her front office. Didn't fully disclose the actual duties for the clerk position.

    Application

    I interviewed at Katy ISD in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had a scheduled time, and when I arrived, you picked up the packet corresponding to your certification level. Then, they usher you to tables where you take a "Substitute Qualification Test." Not what I expected at all - it's the a portion of a high school English exam. After you take the test, the usher you to an interview room where they interview you of course. I'm guessing the interview questions are tailored to your education/experience level. Mine was brief and the questions were straight forward - but easy to answer since I've been a teacher for 7 years. After that, they let you know if you will be invited to training within a week. I got the email invitation one day later.
