    Teacher Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The school tends to hire people who are connected to current employees. Advanced degrees, from prestigious East Coast/Ivy League universities tend to impress them. If you've taught/worked/coached at a private boarding school you're likely going to be fast-tracked to the top of the pile. If you're a friend of a faculty/staff member and you have strong credentials, you'll get an interview at a minimum. The actual interview process itself is pretty straightforward. Phone interview with the Assistant Head, followed by a campus visit for finalist candidates. When on campus, you'll meet with the Assistant Head, visit classes, and conduct a demo lesson. At least 3 administrators will be in and out during your demo lesson, as well as teachers from your discipline. If you're a diversity candidate you might expect an offer on the spot, but they've slowed down the hiring process a bit.

    Negotiation

    There was little to no negotiation. Salaries are on a scale based on years of experience, multi-subject qualifications, etc. However, there is a discretionary category that you can take advantage of that will let you get additional points. I'd max that out if you can.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pacific Ridge School (San Diego, CA) in March 2008.

    Interview

    It was a new school with no athletic performance philosophy in place. The Athletic Director interviewed me - very casual, met at a Starbucks. He had no experience as an administrator, was totally unaware of the requirements for the sport of volleyball and was looking for someone to keep him out of trouble.

    Negotiation

    None, The incentive was working with the kids. The salary is NOT commensurate with experience. Do it because you love it. The disorganization will drive you crazy.
