What is valued in a child is unique to each child to enter your classroom. That's what makes teaching so great and we should not expect each child to be the same. Instead, stress getting to know each child on a personal level, so that you can know and value you them as unique participants in your class.

I would want to avoid any bias sounding answers, but still give one. I would also stress that I may favor some certain aspects, but they will not be a deciding factor in grading. The most thing I value in a child if them wanting to grow as a person whether they realize it or not.

I would try to not use terms that may be construed as sexist or racist. One important point that I would stress is that I value creativity!

Yes, do not respond providing a bias answer. Instead, explain that you value a child that shows a very strong, independent work ethic. Explain that you do understand that each child is different and each has their own personal characteristics. Express the importance of finding something valuable in each child and use it for their individual good.

I would avoid belittling anything about a child. I would elaborate on how students that demonstrate care and precision over there work show achievement in their day to day learning. Students that participate in class discussion instead of disrupting class usually get more out of each lesson and add to the classroom environment.
