    Tell me one thing about yourself that makes you stand out against other English teaching candidates.

      How to Answer

      Shane's Answer

      "In my free time, I love working with music. Whether I play, listen, or a little of both, music expresses the heart of our world. I truly believe music connects in my English classes. I have used it over the years to connect with individuals that have not been excited about the subject. By bringing in my guitar or writing a rap parody of a novel we are reading, music has spoken to my past students."

      "One thing that makes me stand out is my experience in a variety of low-income schools. I have worked with some of the hardest students around. But, I have felt these experiences have blessed my life tremendously."

      Shane's Answer

      No matter the experience level, every teacher has a story to tell. Share the ways that you have made an impact compared to other teachers. Being your authetic self is the best foot forward here.
