What are your 2 greatest strengths?
When you answer this question be sure to answer it by using examples of feedback you've received from a colleague or former supervisor.
Answer examples
"I feel that my 2 greatest strengths are my ability to patiently listen and my inquisitive nature. My colleagues have told me previously that they appreciate how calm and collected I can stay throughout a challenging situation. Also, my previous supervisor complimented me on my inquisitive nature because she was very impressed with my willingness to research topics new to me."
"My colleagues have always said that I'm very compassionate and patient, and that I make a very good teacher. I think that teachers in special education need to be especially patient with their students, and it's easy for me to be this way because I care a lot about children, especially those with intellectual disabilities."

Organization- I like to have lesson plans prepared well ahead of time and then adjust accordingly. I like a clean and organized classroom as well. The ability to adapt to change- Although I plan ahead and like organization, I realize that working in special education means each day is new and can be much different from the day before. I like to have extra plans in case the originals do not fit into the day and I adapt well to changes in the day.
