I would talk about my ability to differentiate instruction for different types of learners and a variety of cognitive abilities. I would also discuss the positive aspects of classroom management, and touch on the strong points of the plans that I have for my classroom. I would definitely stay away from talking about specific behavior issues, and would not try to offer specific solutions or punishments. It would not be a good idea to talk about the negative aspects of behavior management, but focus more on the things that you plan to do to avoid unwanted situations.

It is important to know that being effective means that you see results from what you are teaching. In order to be effective, it is up to you to self-reflect. Without reflecting, you will not be able to achieve desired results and grow as a teacher. As an effective teacher, you must incorporate different teaching methods in the classroom. In order to see positive results, it is also helpful to reach out to other teachers and sources to be an effective teacher.

I would respond by saying my dedication and passion. I would also let them know that I am prepared and timely. Another thing you could say is that you have a superb capability to make real world connections for your students.

Differentiation, classroom management, student accountability, student progress tracking, these are all things that I think make an effective teacher. It is important to be able to manage you class as well as have students learn to accountable for their own learning.

As mentioned previously, I would talk about the positives and not the negatives. I would also advocate for yourself how you geninally care for your students and through that you hope that each student may reach his or her optimal abilities.
