Our intensive teacher hiring process consists of the three stages described below.
STAGE 1: APPLICATION
Stage 1 of the application process consists of 4 components. Applicants for Master teaching positions must submit the following: (1) a cover letter, (2) a resume, (3) evidence of student learning, and (4) an original curricular tool. (The submission requirements for Teaching Fellow applicants are somewhat different.) The requirements for each component, including submission instructions, are specified in detail in the application. Submit your application here.
The subsequent stages of the teacher application process have been slightly modified due to the extended school closure related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
STAGE 2: DEMO-LESSON & IN-PERSON INTERVIEWS
Candidates who are invited to the 2nd stage of the process participate in a formal in-person interview and teach a demo lesson.
Applicants for Pre-K, Kindergarten,1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, or 4th grade teaching positions teach a demo lesson to a class of current TEP Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, or 3rd grade students.
Applicants for middle school teaching positions teach a demo lesson to a class of current TEP middle school students.
The purpose of the demo lesson is to assess the candidate’s ability to (a) effectively manage a classroom, (b) create a high-engagement learning environment and (c) provide tangible evidence of student learning. The purpose of the interview is to learn more about the candidate’s experience in the classroom, gain deeper insight into his or her pedagogical approach, and ascertain whether there is an appropriate fit between the candidate’s goals and growth orientation and TEP’s mission and professional development structure.
STAGE 3: A FULL DAY OF TEACHING Candidates who successfully pass the demo lesson and interview round are invited to participate in the third and final stage: a full day of teaching.
Applicants for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, or 4th grade teaching positions spend a full day at TEP's Early Childhoodor Elementary School campus, teaching 2 to 3 different classes of current TEP Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, or 3rd grade students.
