I have an interview with a big charter school this week. I really want to get out of my charter school because it is chaotic. What should I make sure to mention?

Be sure to work into the conversation: 1. You’re a team player. 2. You are well versed in all state standards for your subject area. Do some research before interview. 3. Mention that you love working with students and that you would be interested in hosting an after school club or activity. 4. When they ask why you want to work in their district say: You want to work in a district where the parents, students, and teachers take education seriously. 5. The day after your interview, physically take a thank you note, ( to primary decision makers office) and homemade cookies. Leave them with the secretary. (It’s kind of a goofy thing to do, but do it!) A thank you via email should also be sent to other interviewers. 6. Be ready to comment on something (anything) in a professional magazine. I have been a teacher for 27 years. Each person I’ve given this advice to (and they’ve done it!) got the job. It works. You will have to let me know if you follow this and get the job…you will!

My district doesn’t make staffing decisions the day of the interview. They schedule interviews over several days. Even if they did make decisions that day, if a job would become available I would want them to remember me. It’s about highlighting your name and image.

Mention you are looking forward to kicking kids out who are tough and get bad grades so they don’t mess up the advertised graduation rates 😉. I kid, I kid….. sort of.

Hi guys. Thanks for all your suggestions. I had my interview today with a public school (I mistyped on my OP) and they quickly told me after the interview that it went to an internal candidate 🤬. Anyways thanks for your support!

I have found that many times they just go through the motions. They are required to do outside interviews, but it’s only to satisfy the requirements. They probably knew they wanted the internal person all along, so don’t stress about it. You did nothing wrong; it just wasn’t yours from the start. Chalk it up to experience and move on.

But I thought you said you hated it, to work on a Charter 🤔

PMS1...CHS1 was responding to the original post.

CHS1...the OP said they want to get out of their charter because it is chaotic, not all charters.

The most recent person I helped hire I knew minutes into the interview. She was smart, calm, fun, considerate, passionate about kids and communicated well. Slam dunk!

Make sure to dress Conservative Business like - even if it's not your eveyday style.

Have a time venturing out!

What you love the kids and how you can always be flexible and adjust to any situations. You don’t need any resources to success.

Mention what you know about the charter school and what they value and why that's an important work environment for you to be in.
