Frequently Asked Questions

Following submission of the online application, successful candidates will be invited to participate in a phone interview. You will receive the invitation through your TeacherTrack account.  After scheduling, be sure to check for a confirmation email to make sure you’re all set.

What is the interview process?

During the 25-minute phone interview, you will answer questions about your past experiences and your beliefs about effective teaching. You will also respond to classroom scenarios that are representative of the challenges that new teachers may face in a high-need school. The purpose of the phone interview is to further assess your fit with the program and your potential to become an effective teacher through our training model.

The phone interview is the final step in the interview process. Prior to the call, be sure to carefully review the Steps to Prepare.  

WHAT HAPPENS IF I MISS MY PHONE INTERVIEW OR THE INTERVIEWER DID NOT CALL THE CORRECT NUMBER?

You can reschedule by logging into TeacherTrack and clicking on the Events tab to sign up for one of our remaining Phone Interview events. Open slots will be available only as listed, though we add slots weekly during application season. You will not be able to reschedule the interview until you receive a message in your Teacher Track account, which takes approximately two to three business days.

AM I ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN A PHONE INTERVIEW WHILE LIVING ABROAD?

Yes, we are able to conduct international phone interviews. You will connect with your interviewer via Zoom, an internet based conference call service. This is a free service for applicants. In order to schedule an international interview, follow the additional steps provided in TeacherTrack when you sign-up for your interview time.

WHY ARE THERE ARE NO INTERVIEW EVENTS AVAILABLE WHEN I TRY TO SIGN-UP? / THE AVAILABLE INTERVIEW TIMES DO NOT WORK WITH MY CURRENT SCHEDULE?

We add additional interview events each week. Continue to log into your Teacher Track account to check for new interview slots and times that work with your schedule.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO PREPARE FOR MY INTERVIEW?

Prior to your interview, carefully read the Steps to Prepare and review your application questions. You will not have access to your application after submitting it, so we advise you to save a copy of your application questions and responses before submission.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO HEAR BACK FROM MY INTERVIEW?

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants generally receive notice of a final decision within three weeks of their interview date.  All candidates will hear back from our program regarding the final decision via email.  (Be sure to check your spam filter and messages in your TeacherTrack message center.)
