    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies.

    Interview

    " Name a time" type questions, hypothecial questions, and also the usual questions about your strengths and weaknesses. Typical school interview questions. They should give deep personality and skill quizzes for this positions instead.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you made a difference. Name one of your strengths/weaknesses. Adversity and how you handled it. If all of these are just a normal part of your job, you can get a little puzzled about how to answer if you don't make a habit of talking yourself up to people; you just do your job well and don't stroke your own ego. A lot of excellent employees I have known (may) stumble on these types of questions, and end up losing out, but if you area proficient liar your chances may be better. No one will know that you were sort of lazy and talked behind everyone's back in your previous job. That is the trouble with those type of questions. Sometimes the good ,honest, and humble can get left behind.   Answer Question

    Music Teacher Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies.

    Interview

    First impression of student behavior in hallways was very good leading me to expect the same within the individual classrooms. Unfortunately, as I toured the school, I could hear teachers screaming at their students and saw kids in the classrooms running around. It looked like very little learning was being accomplished. After my tour, I almost did not want to interview for the position but changed my mind.

    Interview Questions

    • I was expected to know items specific to the area that the school was servicing. Since I am not from the Detroit area, I did not know that the school was within close proximity to some projects.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was unable to negotiate. I was offered 39000 the first year and another offer for 40000 the second year.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies in October 2008.

    Interview

    The offered a trial period with sub pay. Based on a few days they offered yet another trial period. They expected someone in this position to manage the classroom better than the already hired teachers, even on the first day with the students. This (theoretically) meant complete and utter control over almost the whole student body. The claim was that the hired teachers had supreme control, as well as stellar entertainment value in the classroom to keep the students interested. This I did not see for most teachers. Most were no different than anywhere else I taught. I did see humiliation of students with in your face yelling.
