Interview Details – Series of five questions related to my previous teaching experiences, my teaching philosophy, my best practises (Transformational Practises) , use of resources (Ministry and Peel Board resources, documents, tools) , awareness of ministry expectations (the Ontario curriculum) , planning skills (long-range, short term, smart goals, teaching learning critical pathway), teamwork/collaboration skills ...etc. Time for me to ask questions of the administration regarding his/her expectations and school routines, community demographics and needs, staff dynamics and school vision. It helps to bring in samples of work and evidence of productivity. There may not be time to share a professional portfolio but it is good to have one prepared anyways, just in case. More artifacts to share and "talk to".
