What is your greatest strength? How does it help you as a teacher?
In preparing for this type of question, list your strengths. You can narrow them down by thinking about how they help you as a teacher. Think of situations where your strengths help you shine, such as dealing with an unmotivated student or when teaching a topic that most students would find uninteresting. For example, if you are an encourager and motivator, you could say that you love coaching your students. Give a specific instance, such as working with a student who was unmotivated and failing the class. This situation could incorporate multiple strengths, such as being strategic and observant, seeking to understand the problem and then coming up with a way that worked for the student to help empower them. Using examples helps the interviewer get a better picture of your strengths in action.

What is your greatest strength? How does it help you as a teacher?
Being a parent--it helps me to remember that everyone makes mistakes.
My greatest strength is my compassionate nature, I have been through quite a lot during my lifetime and that has made me one to seek forgiveness and understanding despite the person or situation at hand. It is with this quality that I have been able to bridge gaps between student and teacher. For one of the phrases that I live by is: "A student will not care how much you know until they know how much you care."
My greatest strength is my motivation to be successful at what I am doing. I am willing to work hard at what I do in order to become great. I am always trying to become better. This helps me as a teacher because a classroom is a constantly changing environment that presents multiple issues and does not allow you to become static. There is always room for improving professionally as a teacher.
Sharing my experiences with others as well as relating things to others and breaking things down to their simplest form. I am a great hands on teacher and coach that knows how to take something complex and simplify it for everyone else to understand. This is a strength that has allowed me to become a good coach and a promising young teacher.
Tenacity. I don't give up easily. And I genuinely love learning.
Patience deal with students.
My mother is my greatest strength and my best teacher.
