Preschool Teacher Interview Questions

"Being a preschool teacher demands a special kind of sensitivity and nurturing that is different from teaching other age groups. Expect employers to ask a lot of scenario questions, such as how you would cope with difficult parents or handle common child behavior such as crying, temper tantrums, and hyperactivity. To stand out in your interview, it is advantageous to have specialized in early childhood education or be able to provide previous experiences with young children."
