    I'm prepping for an interview which for a fifth grade position at the school where I currently work part time. I feel fairly confident, but I don't know what to ask at the end of the interview. Usually I ask questions about the whole building or if the interview team can tell me a little bit about the team I'll be working with. The obvious issue with these questions is that I know all this information already.

    I know it's good to have a question to ask....I'm just drawing a blank for what questions would be good since I'm familiar with the building and team already!

    Any suggestions??? :D

    Maybe something specific about the team: how they plan, what makes their team unique, what unit they look forward to teaching every year?

    My favorite question that I was ever asked by a candidate was "What does a successful classroom look like to you?".

    I really like that question. It gives you a great chance to hear what the admins and team members value and focus on!

    One question that I really like is, "What do you want most from a teacher?"
