I have been on an interview committee this whole week. First off try to relax. Take a deep breath and think about what you want to say.
Some of the questions we asked were:
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself and working with children. What led you to becoming a teacher?
2. Have you heard of "At Risk Students?" What does it mean? What are some of the causes? What do you think should be done to help counteract this problem in the classroom?
3. If we come into your classroom during reading/ElA time what would we see in your room?
4. If we come into your classroom during math time what would we see in your room?
5. What is one major challenge you might find in your classroom? What would you do to remedy this challenge?
6. How would you go about assessing and setting goals for your students?
7. Have you ever used technology in a classroom?
8. What do you think you could bring to our community in this school?
Then he asked if they had any questions or concerns and we left the interviews like that. For the most part they took an hour to complete. We also looked at the portfolios that they brought with them as well. Try to remember what the buzz words are and what they mean in the classroom setting. Good luck on your interviews. I will pray that you get a job.
