Some helpful interview tips from tonight's #ntchat
Megan van Deventer @megvandev suggested writing down your teaching strengths & weaknesses... memories, words or specific accolades so you don't forget under pressure.
Sit up & sit forward, be engaged in the conversation. Make appropriate eye contact with everyone in the room.
David Hochheiser @DavidHochheiser suggests if there is a student and/or a parent in the interview, ALWAYS ask them about there perspective on the year and hopes for next.
philgriffins @philgriffins not all interviews have people with nametags. I write names down and refer to them by name when responding.
