    Tell me about a time when you used problem-solving to accomplish something on a team.

      How to Answer

      Students and parents are who you will interact with the most in a school, but your peers matter as well. When partnering with staff, teachers, and aides, interviewers are looking to see how all parts can help students succeed. Show how you can get along with anyone.

      Shane's Answer

      "At my last job, I partnered with two other teachers in English to help come up with assessments to investigate student learning. We would create quizzes at the beginning of the week and have students re-assessed at the end to see growth in student development. I enjoyed the process of working with my team to enhance learning."

      "Problem-solving is something that I want my students to see in action. So, when I have problems arise in my Yearbook class, myself and the students put our brains together to see what we can accomplish."

      Shane's Answer

      Getting your students onboard is a great teaching moment. You don't just do it for them. But, you allow them to be a part of the experience. Amazing!
