Want a teaching job?

This article from way back in May might is important to reread now as last minute jobs for next year are being filled.  They suggests you should: 
  • Your application must be complete.
  • Include key information
  • Know information about the district
  • Tell an authentic story about your experiences and philosophy
  • References
I would add:
  • Dress professionally, but not necessarily in a 3 piece suit! Save the flip flops and tank tops for your celebration party!
  • Think carefully about your word choice and the way you speak so that you can present yourself in a professional manner. Avoid words and phrases like "gonna" and "wanna" and skip the pieces
  • Remember, those interviewing you are far less interested in your backpacking in Nepal than in how you will interact with students and parents.
