Next Teacher Interview

Teacher and Administrator Interviewing: 9 Steps to Success offers a new and innovative system to help teachers improve their interviewing skills. This new approach to teacher interview training was created and fine-tuned by the author, Dr. Ron Dexter, after personally conducting more than four hundred one-on-one mock interviews with teacher candidates.

By studying Dr. Dexter's system and practicing the interview questions which are organized into categories, you begin to understand how to respond effectively, and in most cases, you are not so overwhelmed with the interviewing process. With practice and reflection using this system, you will go into the interview knowing what to expect, your confidence will be increased, and your interviewing skills will improve significantly.

The book provides 46 questions that are typical interview questions asked by most school districts. Suggested responses to each question are written by the author and teachers who are experienced and have a high level of expertise.
