Teacher Leadership Academy - Ses. 6

You're Always Interviewing!

The Interview

  • Based on what you know is important in this role, what questions would you ask ? Work with your team to develop a question. Share out.


  • Relax
  • Listen
  • Find out what you can about the school before your interview
  • Be conversational
  • Be authentic
  • Don't appear to have an agenda or initiatives you want to push

Fit is EVERYTHING when it comes to a coaching role! You may have all of the skills necessary to be competent in the role, but if you're not a fit with leadership team or staff, it's difficult to move things forward.

"You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do." -Henry Ford

Beyond the Interview - Some food for thought...

  • Our district is collaborative. People talk to one another outside of school.
  • Engage yourself in leadership opportunities to connect with teachers and leaders from other schools.
  • Your thoughts???

So what's next???
