    What importance do you place on collaborating with other teachers? Tell me about a time when you worked with another teacher to integrate elements of your lessons.

      How to Answer

      Interviewers want to see how well you collaborate with others. The best way to be a unified school is by working together with your counterparts. Share past examples of how you have maximized your time in this area before.

      Shane's Answer

      "I always want to go to teachers who are teaching other subjects and see if I can morph and add their classes to my material. For example, I was talking with the history teacher in my past job. His class was learning about the 1920s. I was considering a few books to choose from, but I went with a text written about the same period. I thought the more we could collaborate, the better the students would retain information and knowledge."

      "With the novel "A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court," there is a tourney that happens. I thought it would be fun to collaborate with the P.E. teacher and have a tournament between the two classes. It has been fun over the years."

      Shane's Answer

      I love the idea! You can always pair up with a variety of teachers to hit home subject matter. A little fun is never a bad thing in education.
