Become a More Marketable Teacher in K-12 Education

| No comments

Multiple endorsements:

  •  Math, science, special education, foreign language and ESL are all high needs areas
  • Allows for more teaching opportunities
  • Creates flexibility for your assignment once hired, helping with retention

Be open during an interview:

  • Ask what could you do to be involved outside your classroom?
  • Are you willing to host a club?
  • Are you interested in coaching?

Keep growing as an educator:

  • Start working on your Master's degree or additional education
  • Take professional development

Research who you apply for and interview with:

  • Know the districts or schools that you are applying for: curriculum, student demographics
  • Know why you want to work there and be able to explain

Ask questions:

  •  Reach out to the district or school for more information
  • Be prepared to ask meaningful questions at the end of your interview (not about salary or benefits)
  • If you do not get the position, ask for their thoughts on your interview, what you did well and what are opportunities for improvement?

Applying out of state:

  •  Be in the process of getting that out-of-state license
  • Do research on how your license will transfer or if it will transfer
