I was surprised the hiring manager brought up the question of salary expectations during this first interview. I reiterated that I was interested at the advertised salary, as posted on the Automation Alley job board. He seemed surprised the salary had been publicly posted. His interest waned after.
They asked me why I wanted to return to the classroom after being an administrator and working from home for the prior five years? They asked me to describe what a reading lesson would look like in my classroom. They wanted specifics regarding what I would say and do with any given student.
