    I only have given my resume in the past. I was thinking about making a business card or a brochure to hand out at the end of the interview.

    I also, bring a portfolio, pad of paper, pen and water.

    I went the alternative route for my cert. When I went on my interview I made a small portfolio. In it I included a resume, my teaching philosophy, letters of recommendation, test scores and transcripts (since I was alternative), I also threw in a blown up picture of an ideal bullentin board for my classroom. I placed in all these items in a report cover using the schools colors. I also made a coversheet on which, I used the school's mascot and mission statement, printed in color.
    I also took a small notepad w/ three questions written on it and a pen.
    I'm not sure how all the principals took it, but the schools I was most interested did seem like it. It was something to leave an impression after I left, and it appeared I had done so research on the school. Most of the principals liked the questions as well.
    Hope this helps.
