I interviewed at Teach for America

Interview

Filled out series of forms in application, then an in person/synchronous interview. The thing with these interviews is that you need to specify that you are going to hold kids to high standards. You are going to push them to their limits (in a good way), hold them accountable, etc.

Interview Questions
  • When was a time you encountered a setback in a project?

I applied online. The process took 4 months. I interviewed at Teach for America

Interview

The first part of the interview requires you to role play a self-made, short lesson that meets their goals within 5 minutes. The lesson can be of any topic or grade level, regardless of your desired placement. You will be asked questions about your role playing and how you incorporated all requirements within a short period of time. During the second portion of the interview, you answer questions about a case study relating to students and an issue in the school or with parents. The third portion of the interview is Q&A style with questions ranging from equity lens to personal growth.

Interview Questions
  • Think about a time when you were given negative feedback. How did you turn that feedback into a positive goal to work toward in the future?
