Interview Questions

Calling all teachers: I am going to be sitting in on interviews for an open 5th grade teaching position this week. I was asked by The Powers to have a list of interview questions ready. Now obviously I can make some up and fare pretty well...but I just realized that I have a wealth of talent and brilliance out there and I would love to tap into it. So what do you, my fellow educators, consider to be the most important factors in hiring a candidate?

What would you ask?


  1. Here's a good one:

    "What's one quality that annoys you in other teachers?" And then the kicker:
    "What's one quality about you that may annoy other teachers?"

    It turns out to be quite revealing ;)
