I sat in on an interview last week for a first grade position at a school in my district. The P said to a brand new teacher: I just want you to know that we are interviewing someone that already has experience in this position. Later the P said: Why should I hire you over someone that already knows the position and has a good track record for success with students? In another interview for a Reading Recovery teacher position the P said: I have a concern with you leaving your current position as a first grade teacher because we really need you there in helping to lead your team. Surely you can understand my concern. I don't know... is it me or are these questions/statements just odd. I was asked out of courtesy to come help this P interview and I just wondered if this is common? What kinds of weird questions/statements have you heard in an interview?
