Interviews are the absolute best. Nothing represents your teaching ability better than making up answers to questions on the spot. I love spending days trying to guess what they might ask only to arrive and have them ask you none of the questions for which you’ve prepared. It keeps you on your toes honestly. Oh and the situational or behavioural questions you’re supposed to respond to without having any prior knowledge about the group of children? Gold. Not to mention what you’d do in a real life situation versus what you tell them you’d do with a fake smile plastered across your face is always the same. And feeling anxious for days before even though realistically the worst thing they could tell you is “no.” It’s so great.

Interview skills ≠ Teaching ability

Currently prepping for a phone interview with a board in BC tomorrow.
