Show the interviewer that you continue to advance your learning and that you have a genuine interest in your working environment. What is something new that currently has your attention?
Here is a list of things you can talk about:
1) a new hobby or sport you're passionate about
2) a new country or place traveled
3) a new dish you cooked or tried
4) an insightful book or TV show
Show the interviewer that you're interesting, and always interested. Make some connections to your teaching and tell them how you've applied or plan to use what you've learned to reach your students, academically or otherwise.
"I recently watched a Netflix show called 13 Reasons Why which delves deeply and unabashedly into issues many teenagers deal with but are unwilling to discuss, such as suicide, and cyberbullying. One of the most interesting things I learned is that a teenager's hippocampus isn't yet fully developed, which is why they can interpret a negative remark or dirty look as lasting and eternal. It helps me to have more patience and empathy with my more problematic students as I realize there are plenty of issues beyond the surface that I might not be aware of."
"I have been a University student for many years now and am always reading. To switch things up, I recently started subscribing to a few different podcasts. My favorite at the moment is 'French Your Way' which is led by a native French teacher who teaches the language to her podcast students. I love the variety of things that I can learn just from tuning in!"
"I recently decided to take up more physical activity, since much of my day is sedentary. I have been going to yoga, spin, and boxing classes. I feel great and bring more energy to my classroom as of late."
