1 Matching the Right Teacher to the Right Job From career office to school district AAEE National Conference November 10, 2009

2 Educator Supply and Demand in the United States Research from the American Association for Employment in Education For almost 75 years, the American Association for Employment in Education, Inc. has focused on advocating for university career centers and school system HR offices as strategic partners in “staffing excellence for the world of education.” AAEE is the only international association directly linking the two vital components of education staffing—school districts and colleges. AAEE provides a range of services and publications to members and nonmembers. Our work is designed to facilitate the preparation, recruitment, induction, mentoring, and retention of educators—all vital steps to help students, our future leaders. The current study marks the 31st year that AAEE has conducted this educator supply and demand research. In recent years, we have observed rather significant shifts in the education marketplace.

5 Availability of Minority Candidates Copyright 2007. AAEE, Inc. Between 2005 and 2007, “… Minority student enrollment ineducation increased only 1 to 5% in a fifth or less of the schools of education and not at all in most schools.”

6 Regional and State Organizations Forming and/or being involved with proactive groups can help you understand and find the candidates you need. Being part of these groups or, at least, keeping in contact with them can also help you place candidates.

7 Cleveland Area Minority Educators Recruitment Association http://www.cameracleve.com The twenty (20) educational agencies in Northeast Ohio that comprise the Cleveland Area Minority Educators Recruitment Association (CAMERA) seek to hire teachers who are sensitive and responsive to student needs in a culturally diverse school environment. The districts provide a range of teaching opportunities - large and small schools with diverse student bodies fostering strong community support. These districts offer competitive salaries and benefits. CAMERA is dedicated to working together to enhance diversity within our schools. Submitting your reservation form automatically makes you a prospective applicant in each of our CAMERA districts / agencies. MISSION To identify, recruit and support minority educational professionals for the Cleveland Area Minority Educators Recruitment Association member agencies. PURPOSE Develop coordinated recruitment and retention of qualified minority educators that will enable member agencies to diversify their faculty more effectively and economically.

8 Inroads to Teacher Licensure Award Purpose: The Cleveland Area Minority Educator Recruitment Association (C.A.M.E.R.A.) Inroads to Teacher Licensure Award provides financial support to minority individuals who are pursuing Ohio Department of Education (ODE) accredited college course work towards obtaining teacher licensure.

9 The Ohio Minority Recruitment Consortium (OMRC) is a standing committee of the Ohio Association of School Personnel Administrators (OASPA). The OMRC has been in existence for over twenty-five years. Membership in the OMRC is voluntary. The underlying function of the OMRC is: Providing a forum for interested colleges/universities, private and public school districts, community agencies, groups and individuals, and state agencies who are interested in working on the issues of the decreasing diversity of Ohio's teaching force, the increasing diversity of student populations, the recruitment of people of color and of persons from underrepresented populations into the teaching force, closing the achievement gap between students of color and white students, and the new Ohio Department of Education standards for teachers.

24 Teacher Screening Debated Districts place more value on applicants' values, but some say online test is too subjective By JAY PARSONS / The Dallas Morning News “… School officials say Gallup's service offers an efficient method to winnow applicants to a manageable number for in-person interviews. They typically start with those scoring in the top quarter of Gallup's TeacherInsight test. … But critics say that there's little evidence linking teachers' test scores to student achievement and that there's no universal agreement on the qualities of a good teacher. "This is valid as one consideration, but when it has a gatekeeper function, it colors the candidate pool by excluding people who possess other kinds of strengths," said Scott Metzger, an assistant professor of education at Penn State University. Dr. Metzger said his research shows that Gallup's formula heavily favors empathy over authority and doesn't factor in a teacher's subject knowledge. …” gallup_26wes.ART.State.Edition2.206aa5e.html gallup_26wes.ART.State.Edition2.206aa5e.html

25 Texas Teacher Insight Interview nameless1 Guest Texas Teacher Insight Interview 03-07-2008, 03:07 PM #11 I am in the process of putting in my application with several districts in the Houston, Texas area for a position in the fall. Two of the districts I am applying to require this online Teacher Insight Interview. I think it may also be called Gallup. Has anyone heard of this? I looked online and it says its a test to recruit the best teachers that takes 45 minutes to complete. Do any Texas teachers know what kind of questions are asked in this online interview? I've never heard of an online interview before. Of course I have to interview in person as well, but am concerned I might not do well on this online interview. nameless1 Kerri M Member Joined: Jul 2007 Posts: 258 nothing to worry about 03-07-2008, 03:21 PM #22 It's not really an interview, it's more like a personality test. It doesn't really take 45 minutes, more like 20-30, and once you take it you don't have to do it again, it can transfer between districts. It just asks a bunch of random questions basically to gather how you time manage, what your stress level is like, how well you work with others etc. I guess there are probably right and wrong answers, but you would never know. I wouldn't sweat over it, just answer the multiple choice questions to describe you the best and that's all you can really do.

26 teach613 New Member Joined: Mar 2008 Posts: 4 Texas help 04-02-2008, 01:35 PM #99 I am from out of state and will be graduating in may and looking to move to Texas. Right now I am going through the all the application process and I just took the Teacher Insight test. It basically was just questions about your personality. I felt like they asked the same question 5 times in different ways probably to see if you are consistent. But it's very stressful trying to get a teaching job in general and then trying to apply as out of state. Any advice for becoming a teacher in Texas. how to land an interview, good districts? Any help would be great!??!?!? teach613 View Public Profile Find More Posts by teach613 cmac Guest Insight counts for more than you think. 04-29-2009, 10:18 AM #1010 The Teacher Insight interview may count for more than you think. It is used in a district where my husband is an assistant principal, and they definitely might not consider interviewing someone who scores low. I know of some who have scored low even though they are perceived as good teachers, so it is a bit subjective. Unlike some who have said not to sweat it, from what I've heard you definitely should sweat it and consider what might be the 'right' answer in an administrator's mind. BTW, you wont ever be able to find out your score, only the principal sees it and he/she may tell others on the intervioew committee what it is.

Dr. Haberman recently described the characteristics of successful teachers for children and youth in poverty in Kappa Delta Pi’s all-time best seller, Star Teachers of Children in Poverty.

29 Non-Verbal Communication Now that you have found your candidates, their non-verbal communication will help you decide whether to make them an offer.

30 Job Search Skills: Non-Verbal You want to make a good impression when you interview. While you definitely want to do the necessary preparation in terms of background information about the employer and yourself and what you will verbally communicate in an interview, it is equally important to think about the non verbal clues which are given during an interview. Non verbal clues include things such as dress, personal grooming, eye contact, handshake, posture and gestures. What you say through the non verbal messages you are transmitting can be just as important as what you say during the interview. The employer will develop an impression of you from the first time that they meet you, thus making the non verbal impressions the first impression you make. If the employer has not told you otherwise, it is always a good approach to dress professionally for a job interview. For men, that would be a business suit, shirt and tie. For women a business suit, with a skirt or slacks and blouse would be appropriate. Shoes should match the suit and be a reasonable height and style for women. Keep jewelry to a minimum. Personal grooming is very important. Be neat and clean. Do not overwhelm the recruiter with perfume or deodorant scents. Maintain eye contact throughout the interview, including from the time that you first greet the recruiter. It is important that you look directly at the recruiter and not at the floor or wall.

31 Tips for Understanding Nonverbal Communication By Susan M. Heathfield, M. Heathfield Recognize that people communicate on many levels. Watch their facial expressions, eye contact, posture, hand and feet movements, body movement and placement, and appearance and passage as they walk toward you. Every gesture is communicating something if you listen with your eyes. Become accustomed to watching nonverbal communication and your ability to read nonverbal communication will grow with practice. If a person’s words say one thing and their nonverbal communication says another, you are wont to listen to the nonverbal communication – and that is usually the correct decision. Assess job candidates based on their nonverbal communication. You can read volumes from how the applicant sits in the lobby. The nonverbal communication during an interview should also elucidate the candidate’s skills, strengths, weaknesses, and concerns for you. Probe nonverbal communication during an investigation or other situation in which you need facts and believable statements. Again, the nonverbal may reveal more than the person’s spoken words. When leading a meeting or speaking to a group, recognize that nonverbal cues can tell you: --when you’ve talked long enough, --when someone else wants to speak, and --the mood of the crowd and their reaction to your remarks. Listen to them and you’ll be a better leader and speaker
