    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kentwood Public Schools (Grand Rapids, MI) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was professional and thorough. There were near 5 staff members. Each staff member asked a question that the felt was important for the position. They were very welcoming and tried to make the interview less stressful. The interviewers seemed to genuinely pay attention to my answers and would often ask me to elaborate on subjects they felt were important.
