This came out of left field for me, but being honest proved to be the best policy - sometimes you can't win. I talked about how I tried different tactics, sought the advice of people around me, looked for help, but ultimately had to reprioritize and move on. The interviewer is mainly looking to see how you cope with failure, which is something you'll deal with often in your time teaching.
