Hi everyone, I recently met the state requirments in Arkansas to begin teaching as a seondary social studies teacher. So far I have had only one interview. Tomorrow I have an interview at another Public Charter School. The first interview I had went well. I was extremely nervous at first and stumbled over some really simple questions.Like when I was asked to introduce myself. But as I got more comfortable I think I did well with the more elaborate questions. Surprisingly many of the questions dealt with disipline. Appreantly that charter school focuses on strong disipline and classroom managament. I am not anticipating tomorrows interview questions to focus as much on disipline. I am sure I will be asked about the common core as Arkansas is transitioning to that. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should focus on when talking about the common core and what a good study guide would be? Also I know my weakness is my inexperience in the classroom. Does anyone know how I should approach this? At my last interview I was straightforward and said that I know I lack traditional classroom experience but I make up for it with my dedication and commitment to making an impact on students. Do you think this was a good approach or should I sort of sugar coat my experience and explain all the times I gave classes in the military as a Sergeant? Thanks for the help! Also my neighbor who was a teacher and works with the department of education has connections at the school I am interviewing at tomorrow. She emailed the principal and said some really nice things to me. Do you think this will help, or do you think it was a little to pushy? Don't get my wrong I am very greatful she put her name out there for me.
