Teacher Interview QuestionsYour interviews with potential teachers for your grade school, middle school, or high school should be tailored to the needs of each classroom. Ask questions that zero in on the proven experience with the grade level and subject matter as described in the job description.
For example, if you’re looking for an English teacher, use specific English teacher interview questions (e.g. where would you begin teaching English to first-time students in the English subject?) Other possible interview questions for teachers who specialize in specific subjects would revolve around their own experience and motivation regarding this subject (e.g. “What was the latest piece of French literature you’ve read?” would assess the motivation of teachers of the French language).
Generally, when you’re choosing questions for teacher interviews, think about how you can evaluate what can’t be found on the candidates’ resumes. You want to find out why they’re interested in your school, what unique qualities they can bring to your team, and what motivates them to do well as educators. This is also a way to get a sense of their relevant interpersonal skills such as how they would discipline students, communicate with parents, and work with leadership to create a positive learning environment for students.
To help you evaluate these critical skills, we collected a set of effective teacher interview questions to ask candidates. Keep in mind that most of the questions in this list can also be used as substitute teacher interview questions since the same standards apply to those teachers as well.
