Become a More Marketable Teacher in K-12 Education
- 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
- 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
