SOLSC #31/31 #sol16

On the other side of the table

I have the opportunity to sit on the other side of the table as we interview candidates for a 1st grade position. I always dreaded interviews, but even more so now! We asked our candidates a series of questions and then they had to teach a mini-lesson and a guided reading lesson. It was a great way to see the candidates in action, but talk about the pressure...whew! I was so pleased to see how the candidates interacted with the students, and it is wonderful that we have such great candidates that want to come to our district.

  1. Interviews are always nerve wracking - it's great that you are cognizant of how jittery a candidate can get. May the best candidate with lots of enthusiasm get the job!

  2. Good luck on finding a great teacher!
