    I have had so many interviews in my life for teaching positions that I can't begin to name how many there were. My general impression was that interviewers LIKE enthusiasm--an enthusiastic voice draws them in. If you show a sense of humor and have a sparkle in your eyes, so much the better.

    I also had some interviews, especially when I first began interviewing, where I probably showed my lack of experience in interviewing. I know for sure that I showed some body movements, fast talking, stuttering, and hesitation. My interviewers were kind and sympathetic, maybe even thinking I was pathetic, but they didn't hire me.

    Being confident, displaying enthusiasm and a sense of humor helped me obtain a teaching position. Don't be afraid to say something funny to break the ice.
