    I have been working at East Baton Rouge Parish School System full-time

    Pros

    There are lots of CLU opportunities for teachers. The curriculum is rigorous. There are 10 vacation days that rollover each year. Overall medium class sizes 18-22 students per teacher.

    Cons

    There are very small salary increases known as step increases. Salaries do not increase enough to keep up with increasing cost of living expenses. Lots of testing and data collection which takes away from instructional time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at East Baton Rouge Parish School System (Baton Rouge, LA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The principal and gifted coordinator interviewed me together. Most of the questions dealt with how I would handle students who seemed to be more advanced that the norm since the position was for a gifted classroom. They had me describe a lesson plan for a typical English class. I had to make one up on the spot. My interview was only a one part interview, however they usually have people come in a second day to actually teach a imaginary class in front of the interviewers. Since my position needed to be filled in asap, I assume they were in too much of a hurry to carry out the second part of the interview.
