    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at School District of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Long application process, quick response, great feedback during interview. I was hired over the phone and regret taking the position without knowing more about what it entailed. Do not take a position over the phone from SDP! Go to the school, check out their routines, behavior management system, policies and procedures and teacher expectations. Ask if you can visit the school during lunch and recess and other transition times to get a feel of what you are getting into. There is a reason the district has a high turnover rate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at School District of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Basically, you throw in an application and then you pick your school. I was selected for several different teaching positions and had the opportunity to select my school/specific position. If you are not committed to urban education do everyone a favor and don't apply. Teachers always come in here not knowing what to expect and quit within the first week. Only apply if teaching has your heart and soul. It's a hard job.
