I am currently thinking of applying for CA teaching license to be part of the school system hopefully next school year. I have being searching on their website and all I could find is that as a 1st time applicant in CA schools I must mail my application. Is this correct? Is there no place to just apply online? If it is please share it.

Is anyone else so sick of the student behaviors that you’re applying for jobs too? This isn’t what I signed up for. I get the kids had trauma from the pandemic and even continue to do so.

At this rate, we will have 24 year olds telling their bosses about the pandemic problems and how the world owes them because of it, oh and here is my list of accommodations for my job…

I applied for another job earlier in the summer, and they just got back to me wanting to do an interview this Friday (our first contact day). It's a great opportunity, and I would LOVE to do it, but we start school next Thursday. Should I tell my principal that I have the interview? Or would I wait until I know if I have the job? If I don't get it, I intend to keep teaching, but if I do, it will be at the worst possible time!

I see major changes needed in order to keep our education system from imploding. It is a bubble that will burst if we just keep applying temporary fixes to patch problems. If you were designing an education system from scratch meant to serve students, parents, and society as effectively and efficiently as possible what would it look like?

I had an interview 3 or 4 months ago with a HS Vice Principal, I thought it went well. He spoke about a potential Demo lesson and visit to the school, due to its location and salary range I was excited. He told me they will be in touch soon. However, months passed with no word, so I accepted another offer, and within the same week I accepted another offer. 3 months after being ghosted, I received an invite for an in-person interview and demo lesson. What’s up?

I apply for a job. Same job that currently have but at a different school on my district. On the surface it appears to be a simple transfer. I’m encouraged to apply. I feel the interview goes well. But I don’t get the transfer. And I’m told that competition was steep. Everyone at the school I want to transfer to are surprised. I get the impression that many people applied. In fact I’d be surprised if there was a lot of people applying for this position. I am so frustrated.

2. Your principal says they are coming in to observe you, how do you prepare?

3. How do you address issues of diversity and racial inequity in the classroom?

4. How do you explain to students that equal and fair are not necessarily the same thing?
