I got a form e-mail response from my district regarding TeacherInsight. Thought you might appreciate the somewhat edited version.
Recently you may have received an email regarding the next step in the application process. The Teacher Insight Assessment by Gallup is a talent assessment that aids the District in the hiring of certificated employees. This assessment only needs to be completed by those who wish to keep their online application active in order to apply for future certificated positions with the District. New certificated applicants interested in employment will automatically be required to complete the assessment, as well as current substitute teachers.
Certificated employees with permanent positions do not need to complete the TeacherInsight Assessment unless they plan to apply for future certificated positions. Management employees do not need to fill out the assessment unless, again, you are applying for a certificated position. If none of the above apply to you, please disregard.
If you have any further questions or need clarification please call the Human Resources Call Center.
This did not answer very many of my questions. In fact, I’m pretty sure that this answered absolutely none of my questions.
Have districts always been this corporate?
Every day, we experience a thousand moments, each of those moments setting in motion a thousand slightly different possibilities in the future. When we make these choices, we are thrust toward another day's crossroads, where we have another thousand choices.
Given the infinite number of choices we make in a lifetime, why do we choose so many of the same routes and make just as many of the same mistakes as our parents and grandparents?
I plan to learn from their mistakes. Let's see how far I get.
