What are some good questions to ask during an interview?
I never have any other than, “Can I have this job plz?”
(I don’t really ask that)
I always asked…
1. What is your mentor ship program for new teachers?
2. What technology is present in the normal classroom?
3. Where do you see your district in the next couple years? What makes you the most excited?
4. I also try to tie in something I saw on the website like… I saw something about your homework policy online. Can you explain that?
I’ll be teaching English at a middle school. I am going to meet with the principal next week to discuss more details. He wants a list of questions before we meet, so he can be ready to answer them. What types of questions should I ask?
-What are the extra duties I’ll have besides teaching?
-What is the school late work policy?
-When do my grades have to be in the gradebook, particularly with long essay or research paper assignments?
-How independent are our students, i.e. when a student doesn’t turn in work or fails something, am I expected to interact primarily with that student or with the parents?
-How do field trips work?
-Is there a copy limit for the copier?
-What about lunch - am I expected to be in a lunchroom or eat with the other staff?
-Tell me about the strengths of the current staff culture. Weaknesses?
-What is your grading philosophy?
