1.
At National Heritage Academies we put a strong emphasis on continued education. We believe that there is always more to learn. How do you feel about continued education?
Of course education is important when you are working in the education industry! Assure the interviewer that you are not resistant to continued education. Perhaps there is a course, program, or workshop that you are personally interested in? Discuss with the interviewer your passion for education.

Ryan's Answer #1
"I wholeheartedly agree that education is incredibly important. We can always learn more! Personally, I like to take a short course or workshop 3-4 times per year. These courses have included additional computer, leadership, and mentorship related training."
Ryan's Answer #2
"Continued education is imperative to my growth as an education professional. I feel strongly about continuing to grow my knowledge in this industry. Could you give me some examples of the ways that National Heritage Academies, Inc. emphasizes continued education in its employees?"
2.
In this position you may be working with individuals who are underage and/or vulnerable. We do full background checks on all of our employees. Are you willing to comply?
This is where you must disclose to the interviewer if you do not have a clean criminal background. Discuss with the interviewer your willingness to comply and be sure to disclose any pain points ahead of time. It is better they find any marks on your record directly from you!

If you have a clean criminal background: "Yes, I am happy to comply with any criminal, financial, and educational related background checks that you require. My record is clean."

Ryan's Answer #1
"Yes, I am happy to comply with any criminal, financial, and educational related background checks that you require. My record is clean."
Ryan's Answer #2
"If you do not have a clean criminal background: "I am happy to comply with any criminal, financial, and educational related background check that you require. The majority will come back clean; however, I should disclose to you that I have a DUI charge from 7 years ago that may come up. I have been cleared of charges now and my drivers' license has been reinstated."
3.
Take a few minutes to walk me through your post-secondary education.
Your post-secondary education is likely listed on your resume; however, this is an opportunity to talk to the interviewer about your overall experience. Discuss any accolades and special recognition you may have received. You can also discuss a class or a project that impacted you the most during that time.

Ryan's Answer #1
"I graduated with a Bachelor's of Outdoor Leadership and Education from Toccoa Falls College in 2006. My experience in that program was great! Even though I worked part time, I was still able to make the Dean's list, received a partial scholarship and graduated top of my class."
Ryan's Answer #2
"In 2009 I completed my Bachelor's of Education and immediately followed that with a Masters' Degree in English. I am very proud of my educational background and am happy with the opportunities that this level of education has allowed me. I would love to continue this education down the road to include a Doctorate."
4.
Tell me about a teacher, leader, or mentor who affected your life in a positive way.
When you work in the Education industry it is important to understand the difference that a strong leader and mentor can make in the life of a student. Talk to the interviewer briefly about someone who may have helped you along the way. Does anyone influential come to mind?

Ryan's Answer #1
"In my elementary years I had some trouble with reading. My grade 2 teacher was a very patient and kind person who went above her duties by giving me additional resources. Because she was generous with her time and efforts, I was exceeding grade level expectations in no time. In addition to catching up academically, I was able to gain a lot of personal confidence."
Ryan's Answer #2
"I believe that every teacher and leader that I have had has played their own part in positively affecting my life. From a young age I have been lucky enough to have excellent mentors who wanted to invest in my future. It's a large part of why I wanted to work in the field of education, myself."
5.
At National Heritage Academies, we seek to hire the most compassionate individuals. Do you consider yourself compassionate?
The best way to answer a question like this is to give a clear and concise example of how you consistently show your compassionate character. Do you help students in your free time? Perhaps you volunteer? Have you received recognition for your efforts from a previous employer? Brainstorm some examples that show off your great character!

Ryan's Answer #1
"I was raised to be a compassionate person and do consider myself to possess this quality. One way that I show this is by volunteering my time as an after-school tutor for kids who are struggling in school and who lack the resources at home. I have been committed to this volunteer work for the past 2 years."
Ryan's Answer #2
"I believe compassion is a must-have trait for anyone wishing to succeed in the field of education. When I think of compassion, I think of the quote from Arthur Schopenhauer that says, "Compassion is the basis of morality." I truly believe in this and try to practice it every day."
