I interviewed at a top school district this morning. I did screw up on two questions but overall it was my best interview yet because for some reason I wasn't nervous. They were very nice which helped. I know that I don't have a chance at this district but I'm using this experience to help guide me on what I need to improve on and for giving me some boost of confidence in future interviews. The questions were: Interview questions from my interview this morning: 1. Tell us about your background/training and why you want to work in this district. 2. What is your favorite thing about teaching at the elementary level? 3. Tell us about the most difficult experience you went through in teaching. 4. How do you a handle a student who is difficult behavioral wise? 5. What do you think the biggest challenge facing a 5th grader in reading? 6. Describe a typical 5th grader? 7. How do you communicate with parents to keep them updated with everything that is going on with students/academics? 8. What is project-based learning to you? 9. Besides tests and quizzes, how else do you assess students learning and how do you use this to assess your teaching/lessons? GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!
