I'm interested in working as a substitute teacher and contacted the agency contracted to provide substitute teachers to all the public schools in my county. I've heard back from the agency and have to go to their office to complete the application, give them the required documents, and be fingerprinted. Following that, I will be interviewed. The email I received from them mentioned an "Informal Meeting" and an "Orientation Session" and states "business attire" is required for both those…and they put "business attire" in bold print. I'm guessing business attire will be required (or at least a good idea) for the interview as well. So, first question…what is "business attire?" I know that's probably a dumb question for many of you, but I'm seriously not sure. Would slacks, a button-down shirt, dress shoes, and a tie be considered "business attire?" Or is "business attire" a suit? Either way, I don't own slacks, a suit, or even a button-down dress shirt, so it looks like a shopping excursion will be forthcoming. Second question…what sort of interview questions should I expect? I've seen a thread on here containing questions teachers should expect to be asked of them in an interview, but would those same questions apply to a substitute teacher?
