I had an interview a few weeks ago that I thought went well, but there is one question really sticking in my mind that I can't let go how I answered. I did not get the position. So to prevent myself from answering in this way again, help me better wording. (I know we have the interview question board, but that doesn't help us figure out the way to answer really well!) Question: Why should our district hire you? My response (and please don't shame me for this): "Please do not take my answer as conceited because I don't mean for it to come across that way, but I am a great teacher and I won't disappoint you. I go above and beyond for my students and want them all to succeed." I added more after this, but can't remember what else I said. Help- how do you answer this question?
