Classroom Teacher Interview Memphis, TN

After I was offered a contract a week later. I was directed

  to attend a MCS job fair with principals who were looking to fill vacant positions. The most difficult question was: What do you consider to be your greatest weakness as a teacher, and how are you working to improve in that area?

Interview Answer

1 Answer


My greatest weakness was seeing myself objectively. I work on this by reflecting on my practices, especially when a lesson or activity did not go as planned. I also ask questions of seasoned and veteran teachers and do not hold back to look good. I am asking for help improving after all, and it is impolite to waste a mentor's time by being less than honest.
