I went to my first teacher fair and got a job today.What helped? This forum! The teacher brochure was a hit.. A classroom management plan and even without teaching experience - u can still be prepared. I felt like the interview really took off when I stopped answering like a pop quiz and answered with conviction based on my experience and based on my understanding whatan effective teacher is. Being prepared by reading as much as I could about teaching philosophies and mining through all the theories and finding out how to bring my own skills to what they were looking for helped. I am over the moon! Now another test!
