    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aspire Public Schools (Stockton, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    screening phone interview, teaching demo, panel interview, It will change this year to include new componants unknown to me.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't as much as a question as it was the facial expression or lack of expression during interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had little wiggle room. ASK lots of questions about what job responsibilites are going to be to the on site administrator and look at your working area to make sure it is acceptable. Also ask what materials will be available for your use.
