Teaching Job Interview Cases
Preparing for an interview is probably the most overlooked phase of securing a new job position. Everyone thinks it is easy until they enter an interview room in front of a panel of educators who are judging every move and every word. Then, reality sinks in! The panel might include the superintendent of the school district, school principals, teachers, and parents, making it critical to address your answers to all involved. The more you prepare for an interview, the better your odds of securing a job offer will be. Listed here are common job interview questions posted as "case" and possible answers (or to submit your own) to give you some ideas on what to include in your responses. Keep in mind, these are just possibilities and should be used with discretion. Each candidate's background, teaching style, and experiences are different, and the answers should reflect those differences.
