Why did you decide to become a teacher? “The most rewarding part… when kids thank you for showing them love and compassion as well as giving them the time and energy to learn.” Kristina Borowczyk, a teacher with 18+ years of experience.
THESE are the educators we want in our schools and this is a prime example of an interview question all educators should be asked. It is no easy feat to fill schools with the best of the best, but if you ask the right interview questions throughout your hiring process, you increase your chances of hiring top-notch educators.

Using run-of-the-mill interview questions won’t find you top talent. Interviewers need to draw out authentic answers that convey a candidate’s character and values… answers that can’t be googled or rehearsed. How your potential hires respond to these questions will set top-tier candidates apart from the rest.
