question
Who has inspired you in your life and why?
Anonymous Answer

The person who has inspired me in my life is my grandma. She passed away due to cancer, and during her time of going through chemo, she encouraged me to connect with people as well as being compassionate because we can build each other's self-esteem as well as reinforce the sense of identity.

Rachelle's Answer

This is a beautiful response, and it seems your grandma was a very wise woman. Well said.

question
How would you respond if a child became physically aggressive with you?
Anonymous Answer

I will act quickly and calmly speak and explain to him to protect me and protect him from doing harm.

Rachelle's Answer

It's important to protect the student, yourself, and the other students. This is a good point. I have reworded for clarity.

"If a child became physically aggressive with me, I would act quickly, remove them from the presence of other children, and try to calm them down by speaking evenly and with authority. I must defuse any situation so that the child, other children, and myself are not harmed."

I am an extremely dedicated employee. At my current position, I will pull the hours needed to complete a task with no questions asked. I help lead our team and am usually the person someone will go to to help solve their issue. I take personal pride in a project being successful and not harping on how we got there or who did what, instead, focusing on the fact that we did get there.

question
Describe your teaching style.
Anonymous Answer

I have grown into an analytical teacher. Learning how to align learning targets with states standards is benefiting my ability to understand which lessons I need to revisit for my students. And in turn, this information allows me to build a lesson with more creative energy. For example, if I notice my students are weaker in a particular standard than I know my original method is not working. So, I need to think outside the box and gather more strategies from new sources.

Rachelle's Answer

You know your teaching style well, and you sound very confident in your approach. Excellent answer!
