    I worked at Fairfax Collegiate full-time

    Pros

    They really care about providing kids and parents a great experience -- teachers too. Great work for smart, hard workers. Good teacher pay for experience level (usually college students). Program is constantly improving thanks to good leadership. Passionate kids + inspired teachers + motivated directors = great experience.

    Cons

    The leadership expects teachers to be proactive and communicative. This isn't a job for everyone, but is a really unique and awesome employment experience for people who love teaching and working with kids.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve support systems, curriculum resources, and training. Emphasize the expectations of teachers, especially with regards to student discipline, lesson planning, and preparing materials.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Fairfax Collegiate (Herndon, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted through email the next day. The director called and just explained the job and asked me to come in. For all potential employees, you have to do a 5 minute teaching sample (on anything, your choice). The director is easy-going.

    Interview Questions

    • Went through resume and asked for a teaching sample. No difficult questions.   Answer Question
