    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Mesquite ISD in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was a former Mesquite student and I had friends in the district. Personal referrals go a long way in the district. I was not a certified teacher at the time, but once they decided they liked me they helped me get my emergency certification through Region 10.

    Interview Questions

    • Honestly, it was not that difficult. The question that mattered the most to them was how I viewed my students and how I would respond to conflict (basic classroom management). IF you do not have experience in teaching make sure you have thought through this because any school wants to hear that you believe that respect is the foundation for your interactions with the students.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The salary is based upon a set schedule, there was not a lot of negotiation involved.
