Today my younger sister went for a substitute interview. As she was talking to me, I got the idea that I would share some of the questions that were posed to her in the interview. Here goes (as many as I can remember): 1. Tell me about yourself (in regards to education field). 2. Why do you want to work in this school district? 3. When you are called to sub from the night before, how soon do you like to be at the school the next morning? 4. How do you want the students to view you (as a sub)? 5. How do you feel towards grading papers for the teacher? 6. What would you do if the lesson plans provided are completed before the end of the class period? 7. Do you feel comfortable teaching from the lesson plans? 8. What if there were no lesson plans? What would you do? 9. Would you consider teaching something other than the lesson plans provided? 10. What would you do if a child was crying? 11. How would handle a couple of students who were misbehaving and causing the disruption in the room? 12. If a student was causing trouble in the classroom, what would it take for you to call for help (admin. staff) to come to the room? 13. Every teacher has a plan period. What would you do during that time? 14. What have you done since you quit your job (since you last taught, graduated)? 15. How do you feel about leaving notes for the teacher? 16. How do you feel at the end of the day when the job has ended? That's all I can remember for now. If she can recall anything more, I'll post it. Each of these answers need a little bit of explanation; short and to the point. If you want to know how my sister responded to these questions, I'll also be glad to include that in the post.
