for a 5th grade ML position. I wasn't told what it was for before the interview so hearing that was a let down. I have done 3 ML jobs and I want a regular position. So, the interview was scheduled for 12:45, but I didn't go in unitl a little after 1. It was with the P and AP. Here are the questions asked: 1.Tell us about yourself...bring your resume to life. 2. Explain Balanced Literacy. 3. Do you have an interest in oceanography? 4. Tell us about Foss science program. 5. How did you teach writer's workshop at summer school? 6. What does it mean to you to be a team member? Then they told me they were going to ask me "life questions" and there was no right or wrong answer: 1. What characteristic do you value the most in people? 2. What is your strongest character trait? 2. What hobbies do you have that you could apply to teaching? 4. If you had a million $ in the bank, and it would always be there, what would you do? You can't say teach. 5. What 3 places would you life to travel to? This was the killer!!! They asked me if I had ever done acting. Then they tole me I had to pretend I was doing a commercial on tv and tell the audience why I shoud be hired. I had 30 seconds and 1 minute to prepare. After it was over they said I did a good job, and that you wouldn't believe some of the things they get from that one. Anyway, things seemed to go well, they were very nice, complimentary, BUT, it is only a ML position ending in January I am getting sick of going on interviews for maternity leave positions...when I think they are for a reg teacher position. What gives? Is this the only way into some schools? Should I wait for another interview to come up in July, August??? Who knows what will happen.
