I always make sure I hire people smarter than me. – Aliko Dangote
The Hilliard City School District has hired exceptionally well. We are a destination district for teachers, administrators, and support staff. We aim to hire and keep the best people. With this said, there is always room for improvement. We live our growth mindset each and every day.
This October we launched a new approach to hiring teachers in our district. After engaging partners such as Apple Computer and The Ohio State University, we have flipped our interview process. After a paper screening of each candidate, we are hosting a group interview to gauge how candidates work and function in groups. Teaching isn’t simply about knowing how to teach; it’s about building relationships, having an empathetic and caring approach, and living with a service minded purpose.
Our goal is to hire the best next generation of educators to continue the traditions established in this district and to continue to push us to be innovative, creative, and accountable.
