    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at School District of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    One in-person interview. There were 4 other teachers interviewing in a panel interview with me. We met with the principal of the school at the school's library. The interview was pretty standard. We discussed the landscape of education, strengths & weaknesses, and what we can bring to the school. A little bit more than a week later, I found out I was hired via email. The paperwork for the School District was a fairly lengthy process however. We needed to submit fingerprints, background check, etc.

    Average Interview

    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.
