Possibly the most difficult aspect of a teaching career is actually landing a teaching job where you get to put all your teaching skills to practice. In the long run, getting that coveted teaching position comes down to one thing, the interview. Making a poor impression or not being able to supply good answers could end in disaster. A little preparation can go a long way to helping you secure that new job, and being prepared for the toughest interview questions is vital.

The following are 10 difficult interview questions you should prepare to answer:

  1. Describe your classroom management philosophy.
  2. What would you do if the entire class began dropping pencils on the floor at the same time?
  3. Describe how you might assess a student's higher-order thinking skills.
  4. Where do you hope to be 10 years from now?
  5. What would you do if you taught a concept and 60% of the class understood it fully and the other 40% was completely lost?
  6. How would you implement differentiated instruction?
