Hi.. So I am new to A to Z teacher stuff and I desperately wanted advice on this question I am asking myself... SO I have an ASSISTANT teacher position interview on Tuesday. (of course I want to be a teacher but I'm taking what I can get).... I talked to the principal over the phone today and he told me very vaguely that he wants me to do a demo lesson for the kindergarten classroom the job is for. By vague, he said it could be whole class or small group, didn't specify. He also said it could be about anything, something that would show my strengths. After that, he was very rushy to get off the phone. I didn't realize till after he hung up that he didn't even tell me how long it had to be. Anyway, I assume its a normal length but my real question is this: He told me the name of the teacher I would be working with who he described as the "most positive person in the world", so I assume she is nice. I was thinking after seeing her email contact on the school's site if it would be a good idea to email her and ask her what her class was learning currently in either math or literacy so I could gage an idea of what to teach, especially since I've never worked with kindergarteners before (my degree is grades 1-6). I figured it would come off very determined and friendly, a good way to introduce myself as well. But part of me thinks it could come off intrusive or going overboard. What do you think? Or any thoughts about what would be a good literacy or math lesson to teach in a demo lesson?
