Teacher Interview Questions and Answers

I want to ask about something to you. If you get a call from school inviting you to interview for teacher job, what do you feel? Happy? Sad? or Scare? . . .

If your answer is "scare", I tell you never worry about that if you're well-prepared. Preparing for teacher interview is like studying for test. Just review comonly asked question then you will get a key for success in the interview.

Here's 3 Tips in Preparation for the teacher Interview :

1. Prepare a portfolio about your strengths as a teacher.
While many candidates teachers entering the interview room with empty- hands, those who have prepared portofolio ahead of time then they will have a profit-making than other interview participants. Keep in mind that a good portfolio will contain good lesson plans, evaluations, student work samples and others. Tell to the interviewer that you are a good teacher and a portfolio could be the proof.
2. Learn the interview question beforeand
Many of same questions are asked almost in every interview.  Learn the questions that often frequently arise in a previous interview and practice how to develop appropriate responses that would impress the panel. If you know the questions and plan your answers in advance, you will pass the interview stage easily and smoothly.

3. Knowing who will be on interview panel
Ask the parties will conduct the interview who will be on the interview panel. If you know the name and position of them, you can prepare an answer that can satisfy the interviewer. For example, if you know there will be a Writting Specialist on the interview commite, then you can give special attention to the writing strategy.

Don't sit around while you wait for the day of the interview! Below is a list of commonly asked teacher interview questions and how to answer these questions. 

1. Could you tell me about youself?
It will be the first question in almost every interview. Don't talk too much, just give a brief background in about three sentences. Tell them what you are college origin, what the teaching experience are and why you'd like this job.

2. Could you describe your standard phyloshopy
Don't tell the interviewer if whenever there is a troubled student you will send the kids to the principal's office, tell them that you are able to handle them in part dicipline problem on your own. Only students who have done a very serious behavioral problems that will be sent to the office.
Moreover, Tell them that you are strict teacher, but you do not yell. You have class rules are posted clearly on the wall. You adhere to the guidelines of school discipline. Also, emphasize that you will minimize discipline problems and will create very interesting lesson for students

3. How do you teach to the state standards?
For this question make sure the desciption of lesson plans in your portfolio have state standards and when they ask about them, pull out your lesson and show them close relationship between teaching and standards.

4. How do you communicate with parents?
Tell the interviewer you will create a parents newsletter that you sent to home every week. For grades 3 and up, you may require the student to have a assignement book that must be signed every night by parents. In this way, parents know what task are given. When there is a dicipline problem you call home and talk with parents.
