Hi 3rd Grade teachers! I want THIS year to be the one that I not only knock it out of the park with my interviews…but one in which I grow in knowledge as well. I would like to ask you…. What are the major issues facing teachers of the third grade? And If you were placed on a committee to hire another teacher for your school (for the third grade) and could ask two questions to prove that they were ready to teach this grade level, what would they be? What would YOU be looking for in this candidate? As I say…I’m preparing for interview season – but I also what to grow as a teacher of ANY grade…so I will be asking this of teachers throughout the grade forums. I appreciate any help you can give!
