I'm a terrible interviewee. Luckily for me, I haven't had to do it in a good ten years. Unluckily for me, I haven't had to do it in a good ten years.
I had an interview about a month ago and I was pretty pathetic. I didn't have enough time to prepare (hours between the phone call and the interview) and I was so nervous I forgot key terms related to teaching. Such as unit. I forgot a block of work revolving around one topic was a unit. What a unit am I!
So, fellow teachers, and basically anyone who is good in these types of situations, please give me your best tips for interviews. I know my application is strong- working in one small school for the past ten years (minus family leave time) has given me plenty of opportunity to look excellent on paper- literacy coordinator, organising extra curricular activities such as school sports, j-rock, school camps etc.
This interview is at the same school with the same panel. (Hopefully the same questions, but I won't hold my breath!)
Help please- I'm desperate to get this job!
