Ok - so our school has voted and we are receiving the TAP grant from our lovely federal government. With this grant - our school gets to 'hire' two mentor teachers and a master teacher. The mentor teachers are teachers who still teach in the classroom - but get to lead professional development, assist teachers, and do other fun things. The master teacher gets to do the same but they are no longer with a class. Anywhoo - I am VERY interested in the mentor teacher position. I like the fact that I still get to be in the classroom but I also get to help out teachers. I feel that I'm very dedicated to my job and use a lot of my free time to create materials, research, and try to do my best for everyone. HOWEVER - I hate interviews and of course there is an interview process for this position. I'm assuming this interview would be very different from a normal teacher interview process. I'm thinking a lot of 'situational' questions. Here's what I need from you. Please please please help me come up with a list of possible questions that you think I might be up against. I want to be as prepared as possible!! Also - they said we can bring a portfolio. What types of things do you think would go into this portfolio. My last one had things that dealt with classroom management and my fabulous units - but that's not what they will want to see.
So - possible interview questions and what to put in my portfolio? I need YOUR help!!!! I don't know how I'll repay you if you help me out - but I promise I'll come up with something. I'm making a measurement unit - maybe a free copy? THANKS!!!
