:help: Hi teachers: I recently became certified in a few middle school subjects, elementary education, and special education through the traditional route. I am older than the fresh new graduates that are out there, as this is my second career. I worked in the corporate world as an IT professional for many years, and I have computer degrees as well. I have my first interview on Tuesday in a school where I substitute very often, it is a middle school in an urban area. I know they are hiring, because when I was there in June, I was told by several people to apply. However, I never formally met the principal, and he is interviewing me. I have a CEAS, so he knows that I never taught formally before. My resume reflects this as well. I am not sure what to say when he asks me my philosophy. Should I use my graduate school philosophy or my life philosophy? Also should I stress my heavy technology background. I am not sure how to approach a teaching interview as I never went on one. I know how to dress and act, but I am so nervous !
