    I have been working at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time (More than 8 years)


    Kennedy Krieger has a well-developed mission statement that is widely disseminated throughout its programs. When you come to work here, you will be well-trained and held to a high standard. As a classroom teacher, you will receive administrative support. You'll have engaged and well-trained classroom assistants. The work is extremely meaningful.


    There is always a lot of work to be done. The individualized nature of each child's program requires a great deal of planning, adapting, data management, and creating unique materials. The day-to-day work is exhausting, both physically and mentally. Raises are infrequent.

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility with staff schedules would go a long way toward creating better morale. Teachers should expect yearly step increases. A sabbatical program could help with teacher retention.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Kennedy Krieger Institute (Baltimore, MD) in November 2016.


    I was called in for an interview expecting a traditional interview. The first part of this process was more informational - I learned about the position, Kennedy Krieger, and the amazing benefits package. I was with two other interviewees during this time. Individually we were asked to role play with the recruiter. At the end I was asked to schedule the second interview. The second interview was in ways more traditional. I was put in a room by myself to fill out a written questionnaire. After I was done the recruiter asked me logistical questions and took me on a tour of the Neurobehavioral Unit.
