VIDEO SUBMISSION: Selected applicants will be invited to submit a video of themselves teaching. Videos are a great opportunity for us to see you with your own students in the classroom environment while highlighting your strengths. Please note that if you are not currently in the classroom or unable to send in video, we will arrange alternative video submission options.

SAMPLE LESSON: Selected applicants will be invited to teach a sample lesson at the Kauffman School and debrief with our Principal.  We’ll be looking for your ability to plan and execute a “I Do- We Do-You Do” lesson, your use of classroom management techniques, and your general teaching personality.  You’ll also have an opportunity to ask us any questions you may have about the position or the school.

REFERENCE CHECKS: On the online application you will be asked to submit three references. We will notify you before we contact your references.

Note Regarding the Interview Process: The interview process outlined above represents a typical interview process.  The process may vary due to factors including (but not limited to) candidate background/experience and type of position.
