Monday will be my second interview with an elementary school. The first interview was just between the principal and myself. She was very encouraging and told me at the end of the interview that she couldn't figure out why I didn't have a job yet. (that was nice of her ) She called me the next day and asked me to come back to interview with a panel of teachers. However, she did tell me that she doesn't know if there is a position yet...but when she gets the go-ahead she wants to have a candidate ready. (This is for 6th grade science and social studies.) I'm not sure how I feel...would she really be going through this long process if she wasn't pretty sure there would be a job? Anyway, I didn't feel I did particularly well in my first interview. There were a few questions that I felt like I sort of fumbled over. I'm assuming I would be asked similar questions on Monday. Maybe the experts have some advice. -I've only ever been interviewed for two positions in two summers. This is my second second interview for a 6th grade position. The pressure is on to perform when you live in the teacher-flooded state of Michigan. Questions: (well, maybe not exactly what they asked, but basically) How do you accommodate reading level discrepancy in your classroom? --especially for a subject like social studies where the text book is often written above their reading level. How do you deal with a student who chronically does not complete their work? Maybe those were the only two that I didn't feel I had enough to say. I apologize for the long post...never again will I say so much. This is just the first one to get my foot in the door.
