Preparing for a School Interview at the Virco Conference Table

interviewNew teachers have become more and more familiar with the interview experience, especially when searching for their first job with a school. Some interviews are low-key and simple (just the principal and one other administrator). Others are more complex and quite intimidating for the uninitiated.

In South Florida, one school is known for having the entire grade level team around a conference table prepared to “grill” or “question” their potential new colleague. The principal makes the final decision, of course, but the input and opinions of current teachers is given tremendous weight in that decision. At one end of the conference table is the principal, across the length of the two sides are the teachers, and finally, the interviewee is invited into a “board room” setting where he or she will sit opposite the principal and answer as many questions as they can with far more eyes than they probably expected to see.

Many schools are finding that this approach to the teacher interview is remarkably efficient. Teachers learn about the candidates while the candidates get to know the personality of the team they might be working with, if hired. Sure it’s intimidating. But it works. offers a smooth, Oval-Shaped Plateau Series Conference Table from Virco. The table is 120″ Long x 60″ Wide x 29″ High and accommodates eight to ten people.
