I had a phone interview for Memphis City Schools and I was wondering are they actually hiring for next year or is it just protocol to do interviews anyway.

Lynne Well, there are two ways to look at it, one OK and one not so good.

First, it could be that Memphis is such a huge district that normal turnover forces them to hire regularly.

Or, it could be that Memphis chews up teachers and spits them out, causing a continual need for fresh bodies.

Rick That makes it sound like the Memphis schools are pretty rough if that's what you mean.

ex-memphis teacher If you're tough you can make it. It's definitely a challenge! You'd better go in with your eyes open, and know exactly how you're going to deal with classroom discipline, because that's going to be your main focus. The kids come from TOUGH places, and they aren't really kids, if you know what I mean.
