So today I had an interview for a secondary social studies teacher position at a public charter school. Yesterday I went out and spent $120 buying a nice new shirt and tie to go with my suit. I spent the whole night going over my resume, my acheivements and the common core standards. I called my work and told them I would be running a little late today for personal reasons. I arrived at the school at 2:45 for a 3:00 interview. At 3:30 an unidentified man takes me to a back office and tells me to sit down. he never introduces himself he just takes a seat behind his desk. ( I am assuming he was the principal). Several minutes later a lady walks in shakes my hand and tells me her name but not her title. She is dressed extremely casual as though she just got back from the lake. The unidentified man did not have a tie on just a button up shirt that was wrinkled. The first several top buttons were undone and his chest was peaking out. They began by asking me very general questions about my resume my degree and so forth. Most of the questions had nothing to do with education. 5 minutes into the questioning some man (I am assuming another teacher) walks into the office and says he needs someone to cover hall duty and then walks out. A few more random questions are asked and then the lady gets up walks out and comes back a minute or two later. She comes back and asks me some other pointless questions. Mean while the man behind the desk is texting or emailing on his cellphone. They then switch rolls while he asks me if I was interested in being a teachers assistant while the lady is texting away. She then starts looking out the window and raising her arms up and around as though she is directing airplanes to land ( I assume she was signaling a friend that she would be out in a few minutes). She the gets up walks out and comes back a minute or two later. At this point they were down with their questioning . There were no questions on ciriculum no questions on experience no questions on teaching techniques. When it came time for me to ask questions I asked about the common core and other basic questions to which I got expressions of complete dumbfoundedness. The interview closed up with the man saying he would let me know in a few weeks if I made it to the next step. The whole interview was 20 minutes at most. I can assume I will never hear from them again. If these people care so little about the people applying for teaching positions I wonder just how much they care about their students. what a joke! No wonder why our educational system in the United States is in such need of repair. Apathetic people make apathetic teachers. As a new teacher going into the field I would never guess in my wildest imagination that I would be dealing with such unprofessional people.
