How to Prepare for a Teaching Interview

Ok... so it's been a while since my last real teaching interview, but let me tell you - it is an experience a person never forgets. Teaching interviews are different from other job interviews. The stakes are higher because each and every job candidate is looking to fill one of the most important jobs our society has - to teach our children.

I have put together some tips that might not be the first things you think about when preparing for a teaching interview, but that are very important nonetheless!!

**Note - if you are seeing this as it is posted, chances are you'll be interviewing for jobs remotely due to COVID-19. These tips are fully applicable to video and phone interviews!**
