"Here is a list of desired qualities for preschool teachers:
- High level of patience
- Sense of humor
- Great creativity
- Strong enthusiasm for children
- Clear verbal and written communicator
- Ability to embrace diversity"
"A preschool teacher must have the best sense of humor! We need to be adaptable, accepting of change, and embracing of diversity. I see in your job description that you are seeking a preschool teacher who also brings a great level of creativity. In addition to my Education degree, I also have a diploma in multi-media arts which will be a great asset in this role."
"A good preschool teacher needs to have a sense of humor, needs to be patient, adaptable, loving, trusting, and willing to have fun. A good preschool teacher needs to be accepting of all children and needs to make everyone feel welcome. She needs to smile often and be stern when needed."
These are fantastic qualities for a preschool teacher to have. One thing that would strengthen your answer is to confirm with the interviewer that you possess these qualities. I have provided an example, below. And one small side note - try to avoid he/she pronouns, and stick to 'they.' Typically, preschool teachers are women; however, it's a generalization that the interviewer may notice.
"A good preschool teacher needs to have a sense of humor, exercise patience, be adaptable, loving, trusting and be willing to have fun. A good preschool teacher needs to be accepting of all children and make everyone feel welcome. They should smile often and be stern when needed. I possess these qualities, and more!"
