    Tell me about how you've supported a student go from struggling to successful in a particular area.

      How to Answer

      The interviewer wants to investigate how you care about your students. Teachers can teach content and deliver lessons, but not all teachers care. This example sets teachers apart from one another.

      Shane's Answer

      "I do not just share with the students that I care about them, but I put it into action. Whether I stay later or come early to help students with an assignment or ask them about their lives outside school, students can tell when a person cares or not. I believe this action allows them to see my value in them."

      "One student I had last year was really struggling to get work in on-time. We worked out a plan for the student to reach out if they needed more time. In turn, there was open and honest conversation and the student reaped the benefits in the end."

      Shane's Answer

      It is amazing how a plan comes together to help a student go forward positively. Keep consistent and you will continue to witness these great things.
