    What makes you passionate about being an assistant principal?

      The interviewer wants to know that you will be engaged and passionate about your role as assistant principal. The best answer to this question is to share your heart with the interviewer. Be a real person, and candidly describe the impact schools have had on you, who impacted your decision to become an assistant principal, and how you feel like you are bettering the upcoming generations through your work in this capacity.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I had an amazing principal in elementary school. I remember I was struggling with transitioning to a new school and she let me spend my breaks hanging out in her room, drawing and chatting. She cared about me. I probably wouldn't have made it through that year so successfully without her help."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "In high school, our assistant principal worked closely with the student council to organize prom and school carnival events. I enjoyed working with him and saw how well he shared his responsibilities with the principal."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "Being an impactful leader drives my passion for being an effective assistant principal. Making a difference in the lives of students in this community, and giving them a foundational for learning, are two things that make it all worthwhile!"
