    Hello!

    I have a substitute (day to day) interview next week. Of course I'm excited, but not sure what types of questions will be asked. I currently sub for two other districts who didn't conduct interviews for subbing. Do you think the questions will be common questions asked in interviews for full time teaching positions?...strengths, weakness, philosophy, classroom management, etc. If anyone has been through a substitute interview and would be willing to share some questions asked, I would be grateful!! :thumb:

    :):thanks:

    Probably more like what would you do if there were no plans left? etc.

    If you are already subbing elsewhere this should be easy to answer from experience.

    Good luck!

    I've had a few sub interviews & they varied greatly. Some just want to know more about you & that interview may be with someone in human resources. One sub interview I went to was actually like a regular interview. I interviewed with a building principal & was asked the same types of questions I've been asked in some of my regular interviews. Where in PA are you, proud mom?

    I've had sub interviews for the two districts that I sub for and the questions were pretty basic. Some of the questions they asked:
    -Tell me about yourself
    -What would you do if you walked in and there were no lesson plans?
    -How would you make sure that students were understanding the lesson?
    -Why do you want to work in this district?
    -What levels would you like to sub for?
    -How do you manage behavior?
    -Is there anything else that you would like to add?
    And I'm sure there were more that I can't remember now. Good luck!

    I was asked almost exactly the questions that Jessica26 posted. If you have ever subbed before it would be great to talk about times that a particular situation happened to you and what you did. Especially the no plans question.
