Congratulations on your interview! I am not a teacher, but I have heard of people doing long/multiple interview at once. I think I would like that better because in a  way you get four chances. If you get caught up or say something that you later feel was a flub, chances are you won’t do it all four times. I would find out who will be interviewing you in each session.

I have been on the other side of interviews like that , and I am in no position to hire, I am just part of the team the person would be working with. While I did share my feedback with the hiring manager, in the end the call was made by one or two people.

As far as what to wear, I would still stick with a suit (skirt or pants) and maybe a more colorful or fun blouse and/or shoes (but still closed toe!) than you would wear for a “Wall Street” type job.


Good Luck!

I taught at a very, very expensive private school for a bit. So here’s my advice: Def wear a suit with a pop of color. You want to look approachable but very professional. If you have a gray suit, go with that. Dont go for anything too showey in terms of necklaces. Simple, but chic.

As for the interviews, make sure you read up on your teacher “buzz words” and also research parent issues. Most private schools lose a ton of teachers because of how heavy parent involvement is. Read up on how you deal with difficult, bossy parents because they will most likely ask you about it. Research the school, as well. Do they have a teaching style (i.e. holistic)? Read up on that and think of ways you have included that in your current practices. Same with the school’s mission. Mentioning that you have studied their mission and already teach with that mission in mind would be a GREAT way to suck up without being too obvious.

Good luck!
