I’m not a teacher but I’m curious… what all does a teach-in interview involve? Is it like being a teacher aide for a day or more observational than anything else?

I am not a teacher, but my mom is a principal and hired hundreds of people and she always liked teachers that ( i heard enough about the teachers that didnt do these things!)

1) knew how to make eye contact which means your back is not always to the class while writing.

2) knew how to explain things in different ways. So if a student didnt understand they didnt explain it the same way again. They took a different strategy.

3) used multiple methods of teaching, visual, hearing and tactical.

4) discussed the why, not just the what. Used reasoning and logic. IE why something happened in history and what it affected, not just the date of the war…

among others, but that is a good place to start.

@Ms.GoodEarth:  Congrats! That’s awesome! Sending positive energy your way. 🙂

I teach at a community college, so I can’t really speak to what a high school is looking for. But I will say that @lefeymw:‘s advice sounds spot on to me. The students I teach always like to know why the topic we are talking about is important, so in Biology the context seems to help a lot.
