    How would you handle a student who uses inappropriate language in your classroom?

      How to Answer

      Students, at one point or another, are going to speak something inappropriate in your classroom. The interviewer wants to see how you will present yourself while speaking with the student kindly yet effectively.

      Shane's Answer

      "There is no reason for inappropriate language in my classroom. When I hear it the first time, I make sure to kindly direct the student to speak with a different word choice. If the problem persists, I speak to them after class and give the full picture of why students should not speak in this way."

      "Inappropriate language is a part of the English language. But, I pull the student aside and speak to them why we do not use the word they are saying, and we all move on together."

      Shane's Answer

      Even if you do have more issues with the student down the road, you will have established a base with them. Do not be afriad to get another teacher or the adminstration invovled in the process, as well.
