Imagine that you are the recruiter. Wouldn't you find it frustrating to interview a potential educator who knows nothing about the school, its district, or its future goals?
Effectively researching a school district will help you determine whether your career goals and objectives fit within the directive of that district. Below are three questions that a professional educator should be able to answer before going to the interview:
- Why do you want to work for our school district?
- What do you know about our school district?
- Do you have any questions for us?
Your interview is your only chance to provide a first-time positive impression; therefore, taking the additional time and effort to do a little homework by researching the school district will increase your chances of securing that coveted teaching position.
