Have you ever wondered how to parlay your talents into a teacher resource position or district-level position? If you are a teacher or a school resource teacher (e.g., instructional coach, CRT, LRS, specialist) then this is for you!
Over 10 pages of advice that includes preparing for a district position, interviewing tips, and a mock resume that is editable in Word (provided in a link within the document).
Thank you for your time and for considering this resource.
Below are excepts from the document and after the last excerpt are statements about how my products are guaranteed, how to get in contact with me and more:
Oprah rephrased first century philosopher, Seneca's, words best, "Luck is when opportunity meets preparation." This document has been put together to help you become prepared for future opportunities. The information provided helped me and others secure district positions. Of course, I cannot guarantee that using this advice will work for you, but it has not failed anyone so far! :)
General Tip Example for Operating In Your Current Role:
Ask other people how they got ahead. Ask others, who are successful, for their tips and what they read. Ask others what is the latest education jargon. For example, district people love to ask in interviews how you plan to "build the capacity" at a future school or how you "build capacity" at your current school site. All that "building capacity" indicates is what you have created that will stay in place when you are gone or what you will do to keep an initiative going once you are gone. For example, if you started a tutoring program at your school, will it still continue when you are gone? How did you create supportive structures to insure the longevity of that initiative?
Interview Tip Example:
9. Have something negative to share about yourself. What I mean is a lot of times they ask you to tell one weakness you have and so you have to think about what the weakness is that can really be seen as a positive (e.g., obsessively check emails, working on the weekends). They may ask you to talk about a time when you failed at something. I suggest a minor failure story where you learned something you were able to apply in the future that ended up helping others. Failure story example: You tried out a new software and it did not work, so you ended up having to spend hours learning how to use the software by watching Youtube videos. Then you shared how to use the new software with others.This example really illustrates how you did not give into failure through your perseverance and ability to problem solve using technology, which are skills they want to know you have. The helping others part is an extra bonus they want to hear. :)
